Unison Media is a Publicity, PR, Social Media and Website Design agency for Classical Music, Opera, and the Performing Arts
We're a different kind of music company. At Unison, we take a uniquely integrated, cutting-edge and proactive approach to our work that sets us apart from the rest.

We're here to help you be heard.
A few of our clients...
We want to tell a better story about classical music.
On their own, publicity, social media, branding or marketing no longer have a meaningful impact - it’s only when they're combined in a cohesive, coordinated fashion that you start to get real results.
Our uniquely integrated, holistic and proactive approach has brought us to some of the biggest artists in the world, and we'll never stop exploring new ways to tell their stories.
Congratulations to Gustavo Dudamel, Warner Classics, Seattle Symphony, The Knights & Gil Shaham, J’Nai Bridges, JACK Quartet
The series of 60+ videos, each under a minute, is designed to teach developing artists the key concepts of branding, publicity, social media, and marketing
PROTOTYPE's Beth Morrison speaks to Associated Press about the festival's experimental virtual season.
We're here to guide you through it all.
Not everyone needs full-scale publicity campaigns. We offer affordable hourly consulting that can help to gain clarity, refine strategy, learn best practices, or just ask those burning questions you have about the industry...
You need a website.
We can help.
Everyone needs a beautiful website, but not everyone can build one themselves, or afford to pay the inflated prices that some developers charge.
We create beautiful, functional, affordable artist websites that meet any budget.
Andrew Ousley spent a decade at the top of the classical record industry before forming Unison in 2015 and rapidly establishing it as one of the top PR/Marketing companies for classical music, opera and the performing arts. He also founded the acclaimed non-profit Death of Classical, where he presents classical music and opera performances in a Crypt in Harlem and a Catacomb in Brooklyn. In his nonexistent spare time, he also runs Burger Club.
Bonnie was the first member of Team Unison back in 2015 when we formed, working alongside Andrew to build the company from a dream and a vision, into one of the leading Performing Arts PR, Marketing, and Branding agencies in the world. She returned to her native Singapore for a spell, managing development and sponsorships for The Esplanade (their equivalent of Lincoln Center), before returning triumphantly to Unison as our Director of Operations. Now, she uses her brilliant organizational mind and business acumen to keep our company on the cutting edge of excellence, ensuring that we deliver ever-greater results for all of our clients.
Mackenzie is known far and wide for her golden quill and rapier wit, which she's used to craft Shakespeare-level narratives for clients ranging from cutting-edge jazz musicians to some of Pittsburgh's hottest restaurants. Now she's using her gifts to tell a powerful and purposeful story about artists and their musical vision. Also fun fact - she grew up next to an emu farm... ask her about it!
Alonso's golden pipes are matched only by his golden soul, and the passion and commitment he brings to everything he does at Unison. He offers a veritable panoply of skills and experience - from handling operations at a theater, to shooting and editing performance videos, to running the office at an Alzheimer's Foundation - and he does it all with efficiency, effectiveness, and an unerring sense of style. Oh, and he also has officially unseated Andrew as Unison's leading expert on Maria Callas...
After rubbing his mighty New England shoulders with American orchestral royalty, Lawson joins Unison with a suite of knowledge and experience in public relations, marketing, and orchestra management. More than just cool and collected, Lawson’s a consummate administrative powerhouse by day and a rabid strings aficionado by night - from Chicago to Boston, he is known as both an accomplished violist and a certified “smooth operator” (seriously- it’s in his resumé).
Maddie comes to Unison with an MBA in Music Business from Belmont University. A classically trained cellist and vocalist, her acuity for marketing is rivaled only by her impeccable musical tastes. Algorithms are no match for this social media songstress—Maddie might have pipes of gold, but don’t sleep on her iron TikTok and Instagram chops either!
Tru comes to Unison following an internship at our sister nonprofit organization Death of Classical, where she used her social media prowess to fling magnificent missives from the Catacombs to the Interwebs, sharing our subterranean exploits far and wide. She now brings that deep savvy of all things social to the team at Unison, working with some of our top clients to cultivate their online followings and tell their stories. Other fun facts: she's a sensational soprano, a radio DJ, and an expert in Artisanal Ramen.
All hail Gizmo...The Untamed, King of the Kitty Castle, Father of Hairballs, Sailor of the Great Catnip Sea, Breaker of Feather Toys, Scratcher of Couches, and Lord Protector of the Realm.
Tyra is the oil that keeps the Unison Machine operating at maximum capacity...she keeps the trains running on time, keeps the lights shining brightly, and stops Andrew from setting things on fire. She also sings the blues like it's nobody's damn business...
