Each month will be a new focus within your career. These topics are chosen by The AC Team based on what our music entrepreneurs need to know in real time. In October, we are focusing on the power of personal branding. Our CEO, Evan Price (AKA @ac_evan) is our resident branding expert and he has developed The Arist Collective Branding Method for Music Business. His course will help you identify what your values-based brand is, what content to push, and how to effectively use this to find your Superfans. Join today to learn how!
Each week we will meet live to discuss the weeks campaign. We also will be bringing in industry professionals for music "Industry Chats" to give you new strategies and insight.

Vinnie Hines is a “Music Maverick” of sorts, impressively maneuvering both sides of the music industry as a full-time musician and booking agent for more than a decade. From humble beginnings singing Midwestern bar gigs to more than 2,000 international performances and a ‘Golden Ticket’ on American Idol XV, he has built quite the following. In the midst of a thriving career, Vinnie became a Co-Owner of Artist Collective, dedicating his time to his passion of artist development as an educator and consultant. You can catch him playing acoustic one-man band shows along the Florida coastlines these days between sporadic tours, as living proof that music can be a lifelong career with the right guidance!CONNECT WITH @AC_VINNIE

"ACM" stands for Artist Collective Meetups. These are interactive networking events we host around the country dedicated to the idea of "Collaboration over Competition." We invite all corners of the entertainment industry to come together, brainstorm, dance, and connect. Whether we're hosting in our home city of Chicago, our new wing in the Space Coast or a virtual online event, we use our expertise to connect folks in a meaningful, profitable way.
Once you join, you will be invited to our private social media groups AKA the 'Collective', along with our exclusive online message thread on various topics within the industry. Talk with other members, AC owners, and other industry professionals about your career path. This means more metrics, more social media engagement and shared experience of what's working where!
For those artists looking for a handcrafted development plan, we offer our Music Business Mentorship Program.

Think of us as your very own 'personal trainer', working the muscles of your career until you can crush your goals. If you're interested in more information, contact @ac_vinnie HERE.
We are actively pushing out content to help artists rise above the pandemic problems. For example, we released a FREE 7-Day Live Panel Series called 'Entertainment Lockdown' that brought in nearly a dozen national experts to discuss how they were responding to the new music industry. Learn more about that HERE. We are also using our Exclusive Artist Community to stay in close contact with our members, sharing information regarding financial aid, gig industry assistance and up to date news.
Artist Collective is different because we care. We love music and the industry as a whole and we are eager to use our passion to open doors for as many artists as we can. We could dissect, analyze and optimize any business industry we want, but we choose music every single day. Beyond that, we rely on our teammates and collaborators. We can't be the masters of every aspect of the industry, so we invite our huge network to provide their expertise, as well! #collaborationovercompetition
