For many artists, under the currently necessary restrictions, Corona makes their most important passion and source of income disasppear. Most concert halls, jazz clubs and festivals are closed or not allowed to take place. There is no planning security for the near future. To get through this difficult time, we are collecting to help our artists.
o-tone music has been active in the music industry for over 20 years by now. Whether as a concert agency, label or publishing house, we have always stood fully behind our artists. We would also like to continue to do this in times of Corona pandemic. For many artists, many live performances are simply gone as a source of income until further notice. The jazz clubs, concert halls and festivals are already working feverishly on a solution, but until then we would like to do something for our artists* to help them financially through this difficult time that is still ahead of us. If there are no concerts at the moment, we will bring the concerts to you. In our thank you selection you will find a very special offer from our artists directly to you. The money from signed CDs and solo concerts goes directly to the respective artists and our compiled CD collections an free donations go into a big pot which is distributed among all participating artists after the end of the campaign. If you want to know who is participating, just have a look at the following list:

What is the project goal and who is the project for?
It's about artists who have no earnings now and whose immediate aid has been used up. In order to prevent the professional and financial perspectives from getting even worse, we would like to support the artists financially. We hope for the generous support of the fans and interested people who care about the musical cultural diversity.
Why would you support this project?
o-tone music has shaped the music cultural landscape for over 20 years, especially in the areas of Jazz, Swing, Soul and World music. During this time we have always stood faithfully at the side of our artists and now we want to ensure that they get some financial and moral help.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
100% of the money from artist-specific thanks and grants will be distributed to the respective artist. The general revenue is divided equally among all artists. The label o-tone music does not receive a share of the collected amount.
Who are the people behind the project?
The project is backed by the concert agency, label and publishing house o-tone music, which would like to continue supporting its artists in those times.
