“This city has the lowest marriage rate in the country and the highest number of same sex couples. So in order to find love, a single girl might have better luck finding, well… a single girl.”

Of Music and Men is a multi-media franchise that includes music and literature projects, as well as the scripted web-based program, Of Music and Men. I am currently in the development stage of the project, attracting the proper financial and human resources to produce a dynamic project!
Check out the Of Music & Men trailer.
[/one_half_last] [one_half class=”” last=”no” ]The Of Music and Men project includes the half-hour American comedy-drama series created by Kayona Ebony Brown that chronicles the life of a young, single, female entrepreneur and her experiences with men as she tries to succeed in the music business and in love, all while navigating the most unlikely town for either: Washington, DC.
Tenth Letter introduced you to J and took you on an incredible journey where you also met her friends, Kenya and Ty. Now, in prequel-like fashion, Of Music and Men takes you back a few years with a quarter-life, coming-of-age story from Kenya’s perspective as a chronically single 20-something, trying to understand the opposite sex while trying to succeed running her own independent record company.
Before Tenth Letter, Kenya Shaw was just a young, smart, ambitious kid from Washington, DC, who spent the better part of her new adult life trying to build 16:9 Recordings, her record company.[/one_half] [one_half_last]The thing is: she doesn’t have enough money, she lacks proper resources, she doesn’t have the “right” artists, she doesn’t have connections, and not to mention, she’s in the wrong town for this kind of thing… Right?
With an unforgettable cast of characters, Of Music and Men is the story of an ordinary young woman in a town known for making laws, who grows into the burgeoning young mogul we met in Tenth Letter, succeeding by challenging the rules. Audiences get to see the inner-workings of the independent music scene, and how a unique millennial and her single friends try to find love navigating the bleakest dating scene in the country.
With the help of her blog, Kenya takes you on her journey through the early years of entrepreneurship, and you experience the indelible impression her family, friendships and relationships have on her maturation… both with music and with men.[/one_half_last]
Of Music and Men is a project very dear to my heart that I began developing in January 2012. Since then, I have worked diligently everyday to bring it to where it is now. But I still have a long way to go. Stay tuned…
