MUSIC INDUSTRY ADVICE FROM RICK BARKER (TAYLOR SWIFT'S FORMER MANAGER)

Music Industry Advice From Rick Barker (Taylor Swift's Former Manager)

Written by Omari MC

Whether you do Hip-Hop music, Country music, Pop music, etc. There's one thing you can agree with me on.

Taylor Swift is a megastar.

Kind of confuses me sometimes how she got THAT big, but she did.

And I found some tips her former manager is giving out on his journey with her in the industry.

When you manage for someone as big as Taylor Swift, there's going to be things you know that no one else does.

I have weekly request for people asking me to manage them, but I simply don't have the time.

If I get all these requests, I can only imagine how many Rick Barker gets.

But HEAR me musicians. Sometimes you're going to have become a better manager yourself!

A manager is supposed to be market savvy, know psychology, and be able to open doors an artist wouldn't be able to without them.

Thing is... There really aren't too many doors you can't get access to nowadays.

With people like Rick Barker giving advice, all you have to do is LISTEN and act on it. That's a big problem with "musicians" now, they don't ACT.

Sure, many people will sit and listen to a quick talk, but when it comes time for ACTION, they'd rather sit and contemplate every little detail.

Sit and wait long enough and you'll wait yourself right out of a music career.

I'll just be upfront too. I know Rick has a paid course for musicians to take. If you feel it's right for you, just TAKE the course.

Stop sitting around and being scared to invest in yourself. I once was too, but it led me nowhere. I probably spend more on monthly maintenance for my site then most artists make in revenue now.

I'm not saying that to brag. I'm pointing it out to say that you can't be afraid to spend (especially on stuff that's going to help you).

If you don't have the funds, get the funds. I don't know to put it more simply than that. If you've been reading the blog long enough you know this is a no excuse zone.

If you want a music career badly enough, you'll get it. Investing in marketing knowledge is probably one of the most underused resources for musicians.

Don't slip up and get left behind while others invest in themselves and surpass you.
