Campaigns are not just for politicians, they're for anyone with a campaign and an agenda. Unless we make our own campaigns, we are destined to be the poor souls being pulled this way and that by soap commercials.

Therefore, organize! Answer the following with a ball point pen:
1. What is your objective? Be specific
2. What is the road to get there really going to look like? Be brutal.

With this information, OnAxis Music assists with Marketing Campaigns such as:

- increasing mailing list subscribers
- increasing event listings in local press
- increasing hits to website
- increasing # hits/followers on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. (though note the numbers in themselves don't directly translate to fans or sales, but in the right context this is useful)

- creating/designing one sheets
- sending album information to local press, radio, etc.
- developing album marketing campaign
- soliciting album reviews

- developing marketing campaign specific to singles

- plans of attack for booking strategies

and so much more. We can lobby for you.

This all sounds great. Is it affordable?

Promotion seems overwhelming, but in the right hands it is manageable. Trust us, as independent freelancers in the current economy, affordable to you means the same thing it does for us. We understand that some musicians are eating sandwiches out of garbage cans, so we definitely allow you to keep your well-earned sandwich cash. We actually, in turn, sometimes accept payment by sandwiches.

What About Graphic Design?
We provide graphic design for poster, fliers and layout of EPK and other materials. We provide custom artwork as well.

Our Shared Goal:
To bring your music and/or company to a wider audience.

Why it's easier than doing it yourself:
We offer an objective ear and create something that sets you in the right direction. We are easy to work with, flexible and do promotion to let you focus on your music- which is after all, the point!

Nino Arobelidze Creates New Crossroads Between Pop, Jazz, Soul and Damn Good Beat Boxing with NOMAD

Nino’s new album excels at the art of being classy, subtle and cutting edge. The U.S. musician and vocalist, who grew up overseas in the country of Georgia, represents rhythmic and lyrical exploration. Perhaps traveling the globe contributed to the adventure and beauty of bridging pop, jazz, soul and beautiful beat boxing. It is a triumph of the merging of genres from many countries, as well as the U.S. Listeners of smooth jazz, R&B, hip hop, EDM, genuine rock and roll and spoken word can all light candles together. Layers of sounds become clouds that float over traditional boundaries, and merge together joyously. Colors are bright. Thoughts are free and relaxing, with flavorful bends and turns. With her springy, curly hair and smiling eyes, she remains uplifting, artistic and wise. A fan explains the magnetic lure as “enchanting as the sirens of lore, revealing her soft, beguiling smile…[Nino’s music] teaches and we are eager students.” How did she achieve sounding unique but remark…

Revelatory Night of Pop/Folk with Sarah Eide and Jan Seides Sat 10/1/16 (Chicago)

Songwriters Sarah Eide and Jan Seides bring a revelatory pop/folk music to Uncommon Ground 1401 W. Devon, Saturday October 1 at 9:00pm. The pairing is a unique blend with some exciting contrasts.Sarah Eide has been carving a name in the Chicago music scene over the past few years, although she originally hails from the East coast. Performing with percussionists, guitarists and a full band make each show a flavorful adventure. At this show, her cinematic and intricate piano work will be accented by James Abud, multi-instrumentalist based in Chicago. Visceral sensitivity, wrapped in bold song titles like “Forgiveness” and “Challenge & Victory”, is the key to her trademark sound: introspection with great musicality.
Comparable to Laura Nyro, a pianist/composer from the 60’s soul-folk underground, Eide also has a swinging rock piano style and intellectually satisfying arrangements. While Nyro comes off as vulnerable at times, Eide has a steadfast, empowering vibe along with sweet appro…

New Bio for Jane Thatcher

OnAxis Music recently completed a new bio for Jane Thatcher a CAUDog Recording Artist. I really enjoyed interviewing Jane and learning more about her life. We all have such interesting stories to tell! OnAxis is also working with Jane on a blog about helping young girls buck social pressures and achieve great things. In the meantime...


Jane Thatcher is a whirling dervish of dreamy pop with firecracker-like spunk and kinetic stage energy. With one taste of her chocolate-flavored voice, foot-stomping rhythms and heartfelt lullabies, you'll see why she stirs the souls of audiences at large clubs and intimate stages.

Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah her musical accomplishmets have spread like wildfire once landing in Chicago. Highlights include large festivals and venues including Widow's Peak, Lincoln Hall and Loyola University-- in addition she's created a professional music video for the song “Good Reasons” and an new full-length album with CAUDog Recor…
