March 16th, 2017 - K-Drama has announced the kickoff of his own independent recording company, Playwright Music.
The name Playwright is a spin-off of the K-Drama moniker, insisting the label will star Christ as the leading role in their music. It’s also a play on words, encouraging it’s listeners to “play right”.
Playwright Music’s first signee is Cincinnati singer/rapper, Scott Simms. The label is also home to Charde Jones & K-Drama himself. Additionally, the label will work closely with producer affiliate, Anthony “Rock House” Clary, who produced “The Heart” & co-produced “Arthur Agee” on K-Drama’s latest solo album, ‘The 8th’.
K-Drama plans on implementing his experience from previously being signed to Cross Movement Records & Holy Hip Hop Music to help operate the business. “I have learned a great deal, both positive & challenging, from formerly being signed to two labels. These experiences will allow me to be fair & to treat my artists how I want to be treated”, says K-Drama.
In addition to releasing musical content, Playwright Music will also launch a philanthropic arm, Beat Lessons, a program focusing on teaching people how to make beats using digital audio workstations. Several of the classes will have a registration fee, but most classes will be offered free of charge to the general public. Beat Lessons will begin in late spring/early summer in various locations throughout Greater Cincinnati.
The label will celebrate it’s launch Saturday, April 15th, 2017 at The Underground in Forest Park where K-Drama teaches an after school beat class.
K-Drama adds “By God’s grace, we plan on releasing content that is scripturally sound while being uniquely relevant to this day & age. There is a way to make music that speaks truth to many without compromise. There is a way to play right”.
