Founder and creator of The ComeBack “Philly Style” and IM3Media Philadelphia Isaac Hamm is working hard to get that Philly Sound back in Music.

In 2010, IM3Media hosted its first annual Black Music Month event called The Comeback “Philly Style”. The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection has a long, storied history of avant-garde contributions to the Arts. This critically acclaimed music… showcase and awards ceremony is dedicated to preserving the musical legacy of Philadelphia.

In its first year, Isaac honored Ms. Dyana Williams with The 2010 “Profile in Excellence and Innovation Lifetime Achievement” Award. This award was later dedicated in her name. The 2011 award recipients were: Kenny Gamble; Leon Huff; Chaka Fattah and Wendy Clark aka Hip Hop Pioneer Lady B.

This year IM3Media is embarking on its third year of celebrating Black Music Month. “The Comeback – “Philly Style” will continue to capture the essence, ambiance, and spirit of “feel-good music” for which our great city is known. Bringing the old and the new generations of singers back to their original roots has always been the focus of this event.

Isaac, a Philadelphia native, knew that in order to make this year bigger and better than last year, he would have to add to what took place in the first two years. Having partnered up with local event producers in the city, he created a week series of events titling it “Black Music Month Week”. This week will stretch from Sunday June 24th to Saturday June 30th filled with a various events geared toward music. 

Philadelphia native Isaac M. Hamm, III, 30, grew up not so much on the mean streets but in a working-class neighborhood where he attended high school at The Randolph Skills Center. After graduation, Isaac attended the Community College of Philadelphia, majoring in Communications where he was an aspiring television producer. After an on-campus, chance meeting with a local radio station representative he secured an internship and immediately put his salesmanship skills to work. 

Isaac quickly earned recognition and increased responsibilities as he proved himself through both his uncanny ability to recognize talent and keen insight into how to properly develop, market and promote it. 

Isaac’s business acumen combined with his solid reputation led to his ascent within the Philadelphia local music scene. He ventured into event marketing and caught the attention of prominent promoters as well as major recording label representatives and executives alike. 

As a result, demand for his services steadily increased and eventually led him to form his artist management and consulting company, New Artist Spotlight, as well as his event marketing and promotions company, IM3Mediacom. 

Alongside his passion for developing and promoting talent, Isaac is committed to the cause of fulfilling the need for increased music education within the Philadelphia school system. 

He is currently partnering with The School District of Philadelphia to achieve this goal and set scholarships for achieving graduating high school students whose major is in Arts and Entertainment; scheduled to launch in the 2011 – 2012 school year.

Isaac has graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Corporate Communications from LaSalle University.
