MIC PGH RELEASES IMBM: INDIE MUSIC BUSINESS MODEL, MOVEMENT TOWARD MUSICIAN INDEPENDENCE, ON 7/24

 

Something’s been brewing in the music industry for years, and thanks to artists like Macklemore and Chance the Rapper, it’s starting to bubble to the mainstream surface now. Being an independent musician is now a realistic career choice thanks to technology, but most musicians are still struggling and turning to labels in desperation -- that’s why MIC exists.

Created by indie musicians for indie musicians, MIC PGH (Music Industry Connected, Pittsburgh) is a music career consultancy that develops the IMBM (Indie Music Business Model) to give indie musicians the hope and education they need to not give up on their careers. We spent 8 years deconstructing the music industry and applying it to indie musicians in order to create the IMBM; it’s the first “Choose Your Own Adventure” model to guide any indie musician to personal success without a label, without relocating to a music-hub city like LA, NYC, or Nashville.

 

On July 24, we’re releasing the IMBM to the public and promoting each section of it, one at a time, for 8 weeks.

Along the way we met many indie musicians who agreed with the indie mission, so we created a way for all of us to join in spirit during this paradigm shift in the music industry towards independence -- it’s called The MIC MVMT, officially starting on July 24, as well.

The MIC MVMT (“Movement”) is a network of indie musicians from the “Front Line” (aspiring rappers, rock bands, singer/songwriters, etc.) to “Behind-the-Scenes” (beatmakers, composers, for-hire instrumentalists, etc.) and the “Creatives” that support them (graphic designers, photographers, etc.) -- The MVMT is for indie musicians of all types, anywhere (not just Pittsburgh!).

 

In celebration of its launch, join The MVMT now for just $25 and get the following perks:

 

  • An interview feature article on our Sanctuary blog to share your indie music story
  • Opportunities to make $ from sync licensing through our MIC PGH Publishing branch
  • Unlimited networking requests to all the creative and business freelancers you need
  • MIC promotion of your requested events/releases on our social media

So to all the indie musicians out there: Join The MVMT so we can show you and your indie music off to the world -- and when you tell us that you're following the IMBM, we'll promote you to VIP! See www.micpgh.com/mvmt for all The MVMT members so far.

Follow @micpgh on social media, and sign up for the email list at www.micpgh.com to be a part of this indie music shift. We want to see massively successful indie musicians be the norm, not the outlier -- and our IMBM is our way of helping the world get there.

PS - Like our rebrand? We felt it was high time to revamp the logos, and our interns did a dope job making the new ones sleek and simplified, just like our IMBM (get it?)
