What is IPM?
Founded in 2000 by Matt Connarton, Impact Player Music began as an artist development firm that specializes in booking and radio promotion. IPM will tailor a campaign, based around an artist's goals and budget, that targets the most appropriate markets for their release. IPM also provides live sound engineering, publicity, and live event production.

College radio promotion:
When Impact Player Music began, it's top priority was providing a comprehensive college radio promotion program for artists of all genres. To this day, radio promotion continues to be IPM's most popular service. Clients continue to hire the team at IPM to service radio stations all over the country to promote their music and to garner airplay. IPM not only offers promotion at the college radio level, but also now does internet radio promotion as well. To learn more about IPM's college radio service, as well as other services that IPM offers, please visit the services or contact page.
In 2007, not only did IPM extend it's popular college radio promotion into the world of internet radio, but the company also took the step of launching it's own unique internet station called ipmNation.com, the success of which eventually drove us to phase out use of our parent company's name, Impact Player Music, in favor of re-branding the company as solely ipmNation.com.
One of the longterm goals of IPM is to use ipmNation.com not only as a tool to provide unique programming to the internet radio audience, but to also provide a platform from which to launch these unique programs into syndication to other internet, as well as college radio stations.
