Has someone you admire in the music industry ever granted you facetime? In this fast-paced industry, it doesn't happen often, so when it does you better not miss out. On today’s show, Rick tells us about a similar incident that happened to him. Listen in as he draws some very relevant advice from the mistakes of others.


“Your sound is not identified by data and analytics. Your sound is identified by who you are and who you want to be as a musician. If you are trying to be like everyone else you’re never going to be yourself.”

-Rick Barker
