A Legacy of Music

For almost 50 years, Rock and Soul has proudly stood as the world's oldest independent record store, nestled in the heart of NYC. Throughout our rich history, we have weathered the ever-changing tides of the music industry, emerging as a resilient beacon of musical excellence.

More than just a store, Rock and Soul embodies the spirit of music itself. We are a cherished community hub, a sanctuary where music lovers and the DJ community unite. Our doors are always open, welcoming both seasoned artists and budding talents to share their passion, connect with like-minded individuals, and embark on creative journeys together.

As the years rolled by, Rock and Soul's unwavering commitment to quality and authenticity caught the attention of the media and documentaries. Our store proudly graced the screens in notable productions such as Wu Tang Clan's "Of Mics and Men," Mark Ronson's captivating documentary, and John Leguizamo's "John Leguizamo takes America." Esteemed news networks including NBC News, ABC News, and Fox News recognized our store's profound impact on the music community, further amplifying our presence.

MTV, a renowned platform that celebrates music and youth culture, also featured Rock and Soul, solidifying our influence in the industry. Our store's imprint can also be found within the pages of the "Beastie Boys Book," a remarkable chronicle of the band's journey, where Rock and Soul's name stands as a testament to our pivotal role in supporting and nurturing music culture.
