Kari-On Productions About Us [cached]

Founded by Kari Gaffney in 1988, Kari-On Productions was created by musicians for musicians to give an even footing in the ever changing, ever-evolving music fabric. Music has expanded its ability and definition of “broadcasting,� and so have we. A 21st century way of thinking, we don’t look in the rear view mirror; we keep our eyes on the road ahead so we can watch the trends and keep you #trending.

Kari Gaffney, along with her partner Jeff Williams, offer a profound knowledge and dedication to the passion of promotions and the umbrella approach that is needed to secure your “edge� in the open access world of music today.
Prior to forming Kari-On Productions, Gaffney a native Southern Californian, grew up surrounded by family and friends deeply involved in all aspects of the entertainment industry; many are famous performers, actors, songwriters, producers and sound engineers. Gaffney herself has 3 pop albums, 2 jazz albums and has recorded numerous singles for various compilation CDs. Her jazz releases enjoyed national distribution through Borders, Books and Music (as an independent artist) when they were the leading retail outlet for jazz. In addition, Gaffney put together 5 US tours on her own to promote Angel Eyes and Satin Doll, including over 300 in-store promotional appearances. This profound “in the trenches� approach gave Gaffney the foundation, that would then be built upon 28 years of #doing for other artists successfully, which has lent her the ability to offer insight and experience to empower so many musicians across the globe.
Together, Gaffney and Williams offer a powerful team effort to empower the way music is presented, listened to, and socialized.

Thanks to Kari, my band got massive airplay and was reviewed by all the major U.S. media outlets, our CDs began selling big-time in the U.S., none of this would have been possible without Kari's impressive work!

Putting your trust into someone with your art can be quite frustrating, but Kari has done a great job with my album. For me, her sensitivity to music from an artistic standpoint convinced me she knew what she was doing. Don't waste your time with others, give Kari a call.
The mystery of promotion is unveiled with Kari Gaffney. Not only is she at the forefront of the latest approaches to promotion but she truly cares about what she does. Kari had the same passion about pormoting my music as I have about recording and performing it. The proof is in the great results she gets. I am so glad I found her. -Dan Moretti (saxophone) It is so important, in this business, to surround yourself with the best - from musicians to your recording engineer and mixing/mastering staff to your publicist/radio promoter - Kari is THE BEST! From the beginning, I have had complete trust in her recommendations, her decisions and guidance in presenting my CD "Sentimental Mood". Kari's excellent reputation and years of experience allow her to get my music to the right people! I look forward to working with Kari Gaffney with my future CD releases!!! -Kate Reid (vocalist) Kari Gaffney is a total 100% hands on music promotional company, She has a great ear on how to market your particular sound to the music masses of a lot of different Genres. Also she is very honest about business and music air play. At first I thought it was a scam but she is for real. I applaud Kari Gaffney & Kari-On Productions for their hard work on getting the music out there. And you may Carry On! James Zollar. (the original) J.Z
From the very onset, I understood that Kari Gaffney and her agency were the "Real Deal". It was very clear that she appreciated the music that I was making and understood what she could do to promote it. I was duly impressed by her honesty in stating what she could not do with it. Dealing with her and her agency has been nothing short of pleasant and took a large burden off of my shoulders.
Kari-On Productions--more than worth the investment. - I'm lucky to have great friends--some of whom are well-respected NYC jazz musicians who all recommended publicist/radio promoter Kari Gaffney to me as I was looking to raise the level of exposure that my music was receiving. When friends like this say flat out, "Morgana, this is what you need to do," you don't question. You get out your wallet and find a way to make it happen. -Carol Morgan (trumpet) We’re thrilled and honored to have Kari promoting our CD. She has a potent combination of genuine enthusiasm, tireless work ethic, seemingly endless contacts and resources, and magnificent skill in the art of promotion. It’s a perfect storm that has put us in front of more eyes and ears than we would have believed. We’ll be working with her again for all future recording projects, no question! -Ryan Fraley Wave Mechanics Union Working with Kari Gaffney was one of the easiest things I've ever done. After a personal recommendation from a friend and fellow musician, I made the call and was greeted by one of the most genuinely nice people I've ever worked with. Everything about my entire album project to that point took a tremendous amount of effort, but the promotional step was a breeze. I needed radio play and magazine reviews and trusted that Kari would deliver. She never ignored a phone call or email to make sure I was getting what I needed, when I needed it. Working with Kari pushed my career to the next level. -Michael Cottone (trumpet) The first time I spoke to Kari at Kari-On Productions, I knew I was getting involved with someone very confident and serious about what they do. I could sense in her voice that there was an excitement about my music and the chance to get the album out there. And it wasn't that I was just another client, I could tell that her and her staff would be behind me 100%. It's obviously important that in any business relationship, communication is part of the key to success. With Kari, I always feel like I can ask questions, and call or contact her any time I need something. This is a very reassuring feeling, I now have a strong model of what a publicist should do for an artist. I recommend her to every musician I come into contact with. If you want your music to be heard, Kari-On Productions is the way to go. -Matt Garrison (saxophone) I heard good things from musician friends about Kari Gaffney and Kari-On Productions before I hired them to promote my CD but what I got exceeded my expectations. Kari is incredibly well-organized and responsive and really knows her way around the broadcast world and internet; she got my CD lots of airplay and got it into the hands of bloggers and trade magazines who reviewed it despite the fact that I have little-to-no name recognition. She also knows her way around social media and used this medium to support my campaign in ways I hadn't anticipated. Her professionalism and transparency were evident from the very beginning and, as this was my first CD as a leader, she was instrumental in helping me get organized on the public relations / promotional side of this business.
