Bram Bessoff

Bram has always had the quintessential mash-up career. With one half of his brain steeped heavily in the music industry and the other half working the daily grind in technology, both careers finally collided with the inception of Indiehitmaker (IHM). Part of the new music industry, IHM offers a music service once unavailable to the masses of artists who are still selling music in today’s market. Backed by PolyPlat Records, the label he co-owns, and powered by Blue Mountain Technologies, his software development company, IHM is helping independent artists establish and advance their careers by allowing them to report live venue sales to SoundScan, a service once only available to signed artists. The real magic here is that they are leveraging technology to make it available, affordable and easy for every one of the 300,000 plus independent artists currently touring and performing in the United States a way to leverage the only industry-accepted sales metric, SoundScan, and get on the Billboard Charts. IHM is proud to have serviced over 100 artists since it’s inception, with twelve of them charting on SoundScan and Billboard and one even hitting number one on the coveted Heatseekers album charts.
