Bram Bessoff (pictured on the left) started his career as drummer for long-time touring and successful indie band Soup. Now off the road, he speaks at conferences nationwide and helps artists get the most out of their live show and #makeitcount with live music production and sales reporting to Soundscan and Billboard.
