What is ipmNation?
Founded in 2000 by Matt Connarton, the company originally known as 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, and can provide many other services as well.
Impact Player Music has worked with a variety of musicians from all genres, signed and unsigned, self-released, indie, and major labels. IPM can help to create a solid foundation for new artists, and take all artists to new levels.
The radio department structures a campaign that targets college radio, AAA, non-commercial and commercial-specialty shows. The stations are solicited for airplay and feedback regarding the release. In addition, radio interviews and in-studio performances are coordinated in touring markets wherever possible. IPM's radio and tour support can provide the necessary groundwork that will ensure advance exposure in your pending tour markets.
In addition to airplay, artists can benefit from our booking services. For those ready to make the commitment, capitalizing on the exposure of radio airplay with touring is the obvious next step.
In 2005, Impact Player Music expanded into selling various media online.
In late 2007, IPM launched an internet radio station called ipmNation.com!
In 2011, due to the overwhelming success of ipmNation.com, we began to re-brand the company as ipmNation LLC, or simply ipmNation, as it is known today.
