About Rick Blaskey
Rick has helped shape some of the most outstanding artists since the early eighties as the International Vice President at both Arista Records US and EMI. He worked closely with iconic legends including Tina Turner, Paul McCartney
and Barry Manilow, but most significantly, he launched Whitney Houston’s international career as her first A&R representative. Having always adapted to the ever-changing landscape of the music industry he has pioneered
new ways of reaching audiences.
Rick established The Music & Media Partnership (TMMP) in 1991, the first UK company to specialise in linking music and artists into major sporting events. He is currently developing the streaming show ‘Virtuosos’, a
global documentary series that follows five extraordinary young talents on their tumultuous journeys of stardom. The show appeals to music lovers, social media fans and people interested in human stories.
