Great to see innovation leading to charting sales from new artists and companies

It's great to see tangible evidence of how the use of technology and help a young artists, a new label and distributor make an impact in one of the most competitive industries in the world the US Entertainment market.    So getting on the Billboard charts is not just a symbolic achievement it's something tied to cold sales numbers. And, Quinn Sullivan's record label SuperStarRecords was able to make this happen because Altavoz their distributor, my company, recognized that offering Soundcan data collection to them on the road playing gigs would enable those sales at shows to start filter into the Digital and Physical retail sales.  The ability of small companies to offer back end services like this are a real part of why the Major Record Label/Distributor is breaking down.
