Wait? Who the hell is pOny, and are they a real band? Well, they are a ‘real’ band of talented pros in the music and entertainment industry.

Here’s the rundown… pOny is an animated show in development about an all-girl rock band from the 90's that reunites in the present to steal a dimension-hoping time/space ship from their future selves so they can weak lady-havoc across the multiverse while a shadowy organization closes in on them. You know, that old story. It also features original music based in the 90's pOny sound that crosses genres as they cross the multiverse! Think Josie and the Pussycats meets Dr. Who meets Absolutely Fabulous in a gutter on the Bowery.. This edgy, raunchy, and delightful program is still in the works, and this is the first music release we’re offering this track on the brand spankin new pOny website. The story goes: they made some bad business decisions back in the 80s and 90s and signed away their rights to all of their music. Now, with the help of a few good friends, they have regained the rights to their music and are offering these tracks to their fans online starting with Tell Me.

Here’s the track we’re offering for free download:

But.. pOny looks like a cartoon. What the heck is this?

pOny is an animated show in development by Radio Free Ruby aka Ruby Lawrence and her team of distinguished veterans in their respective fields including Doug Compton, Art Director, Kimson Albert, Director, Joseph Shahadi & Anthony DeVito, writers. Radio Fee Ruby is planning on pitching pOny to producers this fall, so stay tuned for more info on how the pilot is coming together.

Who is this Radio Free Ruby chick?

Ruby Lawrence is a native New Yorker who's story began on Sesame Street. Starting as a teen in the mid 80's she frequented the infamous bars and clubs(both music and dance)of NYC into the 90's. In 2001 she opened "Moe's Bar" in Brooklyn which became the neighborhood's "HQ" until it closed due an outrageous rent hike in 2011. About a year ago she had a "Screw this! I'm just going to do it!" moment and combined her top fives: Science Fiction, music, bad ass ladies, NYC and animation to create "pOny". She also serves as the producer, lyric writer and the voice of "Odette" the lead singer.

pOny is the first project from her production company Radio Free Ruby

I’m interested in getting involved with pOny. Great! Contact producer & show creator Ruby Lawrence for more info radiofreeruby(at)gmail(dot)com.
