Launched in downtown New York City, House of Hassle was borne from a union between Big Hassle Media, a widely respected publicity company, and Bank Robber Music, a boutique tv/film licensing firm representing some of the best labels in independent rock. The goals of House of Hassle's founders are to be more service oriented than the traditional publisher, and to create a company that can serve as a safe haven and like-minded community for gifted songwriters. While creating and collecting publishing revenues for its songwriters, HoH's staff also makes itself available to guide and counsel developing artists in all facets of their careers in music, from management support to publicity, to label shopping and overall business guidance. What is key to making HoH special is that, while being a boutique and focused company, HoH offers all of the services of a major publisher -- including collections of publishing royalties throughout every major territory of the world, as well as a heavy emphasis on television and film synchronization licensing.
