Tony Rose was a successful Executive Producer, Record Producer, Record Company Owner, Personal Manager, Music Publisher, Recording Studio Owner, Recording Engineer, Songwriter and Composer for more than fifteen years. Early in his career, he was employed as a production assistant at the Burbank Studios (Warner Brothers and Columbia Pictures), in the accounting and sales division at Warner/Electra/Atlantic Records (WEA), an accounts representative at Warren Lanier Public Relations and as an A & R representative at RCA Records, Los Angeles, California. In the 1970’s, Rose returned to Boston and along with record producer Maurice Starr became a co-architect of “The Boston Black Music Scene”, a movement that ultimately led to the discovery of the international blockbusters Prince Charles and the City Beat Band, The Jonzun Crew, New Edition and New Kids on the Block. In 1979, Rose formed Solid Platinum Records and Productions, and in 1982 he was named one of the “Top Ten Record Producers in the World”. During the 80’s, Rose held recording / production deals with Virgin Records, Atlantic Records and Pavilion / CBS/Sony Records. His Solid Platinum Records and Productions was the first African-American production company to have a production deals with Virgin Records. In 1983, albums produced by Rose "Gang War" and "Stone Killers" by Prince Charles and the City Beat Band reached Gold Album status and shared the charts with Michael Jackson’s Thriller for six consecutive months in the number one, two and three positions throughout the world. The "Prince Charles and the City Beat Band” albums "Gang War", "Stone Killers", "Combat Zone" and singles, have accounted for more than Four Million albums and singles sold worldwide. Rose’s many music awards include “Gold” and “Platinum” Albums and “Ampex Golden Reel" Awards for recording and engineering New Kids on the Block.
