For over 10 years, HISHAM DAHUD has held a unique perspective of the music landscape as both a digital strategist and active musician.
With roots working with the legendary DJ Shadow on marketing and merchandise operations, he found himself at the epicenter of San Francisco’s burgeoning music tech scene documenting the digital revolution as an analyst for the likes of Hypebot and Billboard. He was eventually called upon to help launch Fame House in 2011, which became a rapidly expanding global agency with a modern approach to digital strategy, marketing and merchandising – helping artists manage and capitalize on their digital presence by connecting with fans through highly unique campaigns.
With a growing client roster including the likes of Eminem, Tiësto, Pearl Jam, Ice Cube, Beatport and many others, Fame House was purchased by SFX Entertainment in 2013 and sold again in 2016 to Universal Music Group.
An entrepreneur at heart, Hisham exited shortly thereafter.
Today he works independently with select clientele at the intersection of music, entertainment and technology. Eager to harness the industry leaders of tomorrow, he also lectures adjunctly at ICON Collective – a forward thinking music production institute that nurtures creative thinking and technical skills equally. On a more casual day you’ll find him producing music, skateboarding the streets of Downtown Los Angeles, or utterly consumed with professional wrestling.
