The name Playwright is a spin-off of the K-Drama moniker and looks to star Christ as the leading role in their music. It’s also a play on words, encouraging its listeners to “play right.”
The first artist signed to the label is Cincinnati singer/rapper, Scott Simms. The label also houses Charde Jones & K-Drama himself. The label will also 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 will use 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,” said K-Drama.
There will also be a philanthropic arm to Playwright Music - 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 the Greater Cincinnati area.
The official launch will be Saturday, April 15th, 2017 at The Underground in Forest Park where K-Drama teaches an after school beat class.
“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,” said K-Drama.
