- We Do the Work - You Enjoy the Benefits
At Kari-On Productions we believe that goals and a clear path to get there is achievable, it takes energy, effort and daily steps towards that goal, but with a team effort it can be achieved.
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. We look at all avenues of promotion, from design, to implementation, to brand value. From traditional to modern methods, it’s about getting your music out and #heard.
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.
Jeff Williams began his career in music as well, a composer, 6, 7, 8 and 9-string guitarist, bassist (acoustic and electric), published author, and educator. Williams holds a bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Composition from Berklee College of Music. As a freelance musician Williams performed throughout the United States also in the trenches with a multitude of jazz groups. In addition, he studied with master educator and jazz guru, Charlie Banacos. Williams’ compositions have been used by the US Government for their ensembles; he is hired by numerous entities for transcriptions, orchestrations, arrangements and is a published composer. His work has been featured on soundtracks for TV, promos and films. Williams in a natural evolution of resourcefulness, 8 years ago took to the path of forming his “creative company” and shaped Modish Creative Group, into a successful full service design company. Modish works with many clients in multiple platforms on their projects, but is partnered with Kari-On Productions to service all of its client’s needs; his countless designs have been used in campaigns on websites, magazines, advertisements, billboards, one sheets, social platforms and beyond.
At Kari-On Productions/Melodic Promotions, LLC, we take our role as your promoter seriously, because we understand the time, love and financial commitment it took to capture your musical moment. Let's face it; your music is personal. We treat our clients' projects as though it was our release, because we have walked in your shoes, we understand the sacrifice and commitment it takes to put a life altering concept like a release in a forward motion to begin with.
Together, Gaffney and Williams offer a powerful team effort to empower the way music is presented, listened to, and socialized. The best way to find out more of what they can offer is to get connected.
