Social Media Release:

Hank Stone is a classic ‘late bloomer’, who finally found his stride in middle age. He is at the peak of his songwriting and performance skills. Since hitting the local stages in 2001, he has garnered praise and encouragement from fans, musicians, radio hosts, and writers. The diversity in Stone’s melodies reflects his wide-ranging taste in music, and his lyrics offer a smorgasbord of narratives, character studies, and mood pieces. He has recently shifted his creative focus onto some new tools: partial capos that work like alternate tunings for the guitar, but with a twist. Stone has also been including harmonicas in the composing process, for some exciting new sounds, some of which will be included in his next CD. More information about Stone can be found at

Rough Folk is Stone’s first CD, recorded from 2004 through 2005, and released in November 2005. The album got airplay on WUSB 90.1FM, and Bob Fass’s Radio Unnameable on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City. Stone described the album as:

After the two opening tracks, idyllic representations of some threatened Eden, our hero is thrust into a trilogy of tragedy with the fiery opening harmonica of ‘Red,’ the preachings of a moralist that morphs into a murder confession, then the saga of suicide called ‘A Riddle,’ and the ‘Father’s Lament’ for his dying child. Fun stuff, and a surefire way to entice the party-loving youth pop music market!

Good Times reviewed the album by writing that Stone

eschews the usual singer/songwriter cliches and opts to write and sing about romance, politics, and events that have shaped his life – there’s even a tribute to John Lennon entitled ‘John, The Weather’s Fine’ included here – in a straightforward yet personal way. Using colors as a theme (‘Blue Crayon,’ ‘Red,’ the story song ‘Black Christmas’), Stone weaves his way through compositions both new and old with conviction and soul.
