Professionally, we are able to see the first and last step for any project as well as every detail along the way. Personally, we are full of the passion and diversity that are uncommon in our industry.

Lost in a Song, Surprisingly Industrious
As a daughter of the South in the sixties, even her name sounds as if it were lifted from the pages of a Tennessee Williams play. Kenya Walker has followed her dream of contributing through the arts with passion and persistence. With years of experience in Songwriting, Performing, Digital Nonlinear Editing as a Freelance Filmmaker, Visual Arts, Web Media and Key Note Speaking, we could not ask for a better Music & Media Director.
Since moving to Nashville, Kenya has been a staff writer for Maypop Music, Hayes Street, BMG Music, and Big Yellow Dog/Sony Music. Her dynamic performance style and masterful writing technique helped Kenya become a favorite amongst songwriters very early on. She has seen the entertainment industry thrive and waver and is always ahead of the curve in a changing, fast-paced, media-driven world. With many entrepreneurial successes under her belt, from national television contributions to hit songwriting credits, she has much to offer our clients. Her visual expertise serves to make sure our film work is examined in the finest detail and her musical prowess guides the direction for artists and songwriters alike.

Staff Writer & Project Manager
Word-Slinger, Undiscovered Superstar
Megan Rasmussen’s young blood is enthusiastic and misleading. This go-getter started at the young age of 13 recording original music in Hollywood. Three years later she was eating ostrich meatballs in Kenya. Two years after that she was hiking down the Grand Canyon and now she is living and breathing like a true wannabe hipster in Nashville.
Fresh off the school grind with a degree in Commercial Music and an emphasis in Music Business, Megan is ready to take on the world. As our project manager and newest Red Griffin team member she is our girl with the gift for gab, always one step ahead as her talent comes so effortlessly in her many skills. As our staff writer she offers a fresh perspective, lyrical insight and creative content to her work by creating blogs, blurbs, eBlasts, bios and one-liners for our diverse group of clients.
Megan’s interests reflect her talents, which is to say they are vast. From songwriting to kickboxing, when she’s not in the office she is probably coloring in the park, dancing to hip hop music from 2006, eating pizza with friends or planning a solution for world hunger and animal abuse. She is truly the fun loving and random ray of California sunshine we have been missing.

With a plethora of experiential success and creativity in business, Vicki Durham is much more than an expert videographer. She easily focuses on adapting to an ever-changing world of technological expansion.

As a native Georgian, Vicki found her way to Nashville almost 20 years ago and began her creative career as an executive for Hitseekers Music. Over time Vicki moved her way up the management ladder, all the while expanding her own career skills into new areas. With her unique experience in both management and technology, along with her ability to learn any new skill and solve any problem, Vicki is the perfect video director!
At any moment you may find Vicki quietly working on creative editing or scheming away on her latest hands-on brainchild. If it’s building or research, Vicki’s mechanical mind is always at work and never seems to sleep. As a professional trouble-shooter with a willingness to help absolutely anyone, she and her never-ending bag of tricks make up one strong asset, giving us a competitive advantage with one of the most versatile videographers Nashville has to offer.
