PonoMusic CEO to Present at AXPONA 2014

Audio Expo North America (AXPONA), announced today that John Hamm, CEO of PonoMusic, will be presenting at the 2014 event in Chicago on April 25 at 6:00 p.m.

PonoMusic, the brainchild of singer-songwriter Neil Young, is focused on its mission of allowing listeners to experience music the way artists created it – at the recording resolution the artist originally chose in the studio. PonoMusic is both an online music store and playback device offering the highest-resolution digital music. The project is being funded by a Kickstarter campaign which launched on March 11 with a goal of $800,000. As of April 1, more than $5.2 million has been raised.

Following Hamm’s presentation, a question-and-answer session will be held, giving audience members a chance to learn more about this unique digital music experience.

“We are thrilled to be able to add this presentation to our event,” said Liz Miller, AXPONA’s conference director. “With the overwhelming success of PonoMusic’s Kickstarter campaign and the intense interest and curiosity of music fans, artists and audiophiles worldwide, we are excited to provide our audience with access to information right from the source.”

John Hamm is a highly regarded organizational leader, entrepreneur and investor in Silicon Valley, with involvement at companies such as Adaptec, IronPort, Brocade, IBM and Western Digital. A music lover and audiophile, he worked as an audio engineer early in his career and is currently a Board Member of the Grammy Foundation. John has also authored a book on leadership entitled "Unusually Excellent."

AXPONA, Audio Expo North America LLC will produce its sixth annual event at the Westin O’Hare, April 25-27, 2014. For details on the event and to register for attendance, visit
