“Before there was a music business there was Henry Stone who shaped and catapulted the sound of 1970s Miami into the mainstream with his unique hit-breaking label TK Records and affiliates. Stone started out in the music distribution business which led him to establish his own independent music label which he ran from a warehouse in Hialeah. TK Record’s first big international hit was George McCrae’s Rock Your Baby in 1974, one of the songs credited to starting the disco revolution. The hits kept coming and by the end of the 1970s the label had several #1 songs in the Billboard Top 100 chart like Get Down Tonight and That’s The Way (I Like It) by KC and the Sunshine Band and Anita Ward’s Ring My Bell. Not long after the disco era was over TK Records went bankrupt, but Stone still had one last piece to add to the Miami music sound puzzle when he helped release what would become the first million seller freestyle hit record Fascinated by Company B and the rest is legit Miami music history.”- Andres Castillo

The Record Man World Premiere at Miami International Film Festival 3/10/15

A note from your Publisher: A little known fact is that I worked for Henry Stone for 10 of the 12 years I have lived in Miami. Stone was in the music business in Miami for well over sixty years. The name “Soul Of Miami” was actually inspired by the Miami Soul music from Henry Stone’s many record labels. I was privileged to be involved in helping to recover thousands of lost tracks recorded in Stone’s Miami (Hialeah) studios in order to re-release them on iTunes, other popular download services and, of course, henrystonemusic.com.

Henry passed away in 2014, but leaves a worldwide legacy of amazing music. His story is the story of music business history, both in Miami and worldwide. His influence was felt throughout the world as a hit-maker and innovator, but his name is little known because he was a behind-the-scenes guy, preferring to give the credit to others.

Now, a movie documentary about Henry Stone and his place in musical history is premiering at the Miami International Film Festival! See it at Regal Cinemas South Beach on March 10th at 7:00pm. Directed by award winning, Miami-based filmmaker Mark Moormann, this is a movie that is not to be missed! BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW
