After securing much success in radio promotion, industry veteran Randy Barberjumps into his newest venture creating an independent label services firm, Bar Frog Music. This full-service promotion and consulting label, based in Nashville TN, features a full slate of offerings including artist development, management, production services, booking inquiries, radio promotion and tours, publicity and social media execution.
The firm has hired Sheena Dickey, a former 10-year radio programmer to serve as Artist Representative and Michael Vorhees, a recent intern with Skyline Artist Agency, will serve as Booking Coordinator. They have also partnered with Brickshore Media, a full-service PR/Marketing firm to represent them as well as their artists and Daredevil Productions, an innovative social media marketing company to help increase their artist fan base on social platforms.
“I am very proud of this team,” says Barber. “Having worked with numerous individuals in the industry, I feel we have the best in the business. Bar Frog Music represents some of the finest talent in country music…and it’s only going to grow from here.”
The current roster includes Amber Hayes, Bailey James, Mark Bray, Nick Hickman, Tony McKee and the duo Williams Honor.
About Randy Barber: Before launching Bar Frog Music, Randy began in radio promotions working with Eric Lee Beddingfield. As a staff songwriter, he co-wrote 8 of the songs on Eric’s project. Without the money to hire a full promotion team to work Beddingfield’s recordings, Barber took this role upon himself and the results were unprecedented. Earning five consecutive top 20 singles on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart, this made Beddingfield the most played independent artist in the history of that chart. This success led to Beddingfield being named The Independent Artist of The Year for 2012 by MusicRow Magazine. Barber oversaw every aspect of ELB’s career, from booking to management while he was performing over 150 shows per year. This success provided Barber the opportunity to be contracted by Sidewalk Records (Imprint of Curb Records) to oversee their secondary Market Promotions where he worked hands on with artists including Dylan Scott, Tim Dugger and Morgan Frazier.
