Episode 418 – Music Exec Vinny Ribas, The Truth Behind Artists And Social Media, And One Hit Wonders
Vinny has worked as both an agent and an artist manager, but is also an executive coach and strategic business consultant. He’s also branched out online in creating Indie Connect and his latest venture Cartne.
Cartne takes the mystery and guesswork out of being an indie artist by providing the answers to over 250 of the most pressing questions and challenges that artists have. It also exposes over 60 of the scams and rip-offs that plague the industry, and also details hundreds of careers in the industry that go way beyond just artist, musician, engineer and producer.
During the interview we talked about the different kinds of agents available, working with the parents of young artists, some current music scams, and much more.
I spoke with Vinny via Zoom from his office in Nashville.
On the intro I’ll take a look at the truth behind artists and social media, and the difference between a one hit wonder and a consistent hitmaker.
