The music production studio focuses on gospel, rock ‘n’ roll, R&B, rap and country music genres. The new production studios will support current Solo Group Entertainment artists,

I AmTune from Raleigh, NC, and local Buffalo artists Savv and Jaymarr are the first of more artists being signed throughout the country.


“I have great talent as part of the label. What sets us apart from others is that we care about our artists and their long-term success in business and life. This music production studio represents the commitment to my artists and my city,” said Hearst, Solo group Entertainment CEO.  ” I own multiple businesses in Buffalo including a restaurant called Solo Eats, a sports agency, rental investments, a trucking company and a retail store. The music production studio is a win-win for local artists and the Main Street business community. These artists are telling the story of our community and we are going to treat them fairly.”

Hearst has been recognized for his generous donations of money and time to the Buffalo community including Operation School Supply, Help for the Holiday’s Gift Basket and Christmas Toy Giveaways and Solo’s Boys to Men Mentoring Program for at-risk African American and Latino youth. Tony is a Worshipful Master Mason at St. Johns Lodge #16. In 2020, the cornerstone was laid to rededicate the building in Tony’s name to honor his service. He earned a Community Service Award from Mayor Byron Brown in 2013 as well as numerous local and state proclamations. Tony “Solo” Hearst Day was commemorated in 2019 and 2020.
