A Workshop & A Phone App To Help You Make The Right Moves In The Music Business

Founder and CEO of Indie Connect, Vinny Ribas shares with us his upcoming series of artist/songwriter workshops taking place starting this month. The workshops are designed for the aspiring artist to seek out information from some of the industry’s top professionals, including managers, publishers, producers, and entertainment lawyers. You can either sign up to attend the workshops in person in Nashville, TN, or subscribe to be a part of them via webcast on your computer.

Vinny has also created a phone app that will help you find all of the necessary resources available to help your music career reach its next level. Currently in its beta test mode, the app should launch over the next couple of weeks, and be available free of charge to those who download it.

The company began as just an informal weekly luncheon at with 5-6 people from different sectors of the industry would get together for lunch to talk music business and try to help each other. It didn’t take long for the industry to take note and within 2 months each weekly meeting had 20-30 participants. Each meeting also featured a guest speaker who was videotaped, giving us the foundation for our online training library.  Over the first few years the company hosted up to 5 music industry networking events in the Nashville. Also have had several monthly Chapter meeting around the country. But times have changed and everything has moved online, so our business model followed suit. Today the comapny specializes in these distinct areas:

  • Artist Management – We represent serious established artists who perform mostly in mid-sized concert venues.
  • Artist Consulting – We choose exceptionally talented artists and serious artist managers and mentor them to the point where they are making a steady profit from their music.
