Austin Mahone's Mom Michele

“Rick Barker was one of my first mentors in the music business when my son Austin started out on YouTube just three years ago. His advice and guidance early on helped me understand and navigate through this whole new world. With his additional knowledge, Austin and I were able to build a more solid foundation in which to make careful decisions in all areas of Austin’s career. We are proud to still call Rick a friend and confidant and think it’s incredible that he has founded The Music Industry Blueprint.” – Michele Mahone, Momager :-)
