Clarence Reid will never die. He proved it at his own funeral with an overwhelming presence in the hearts and minds of those he loved, and those who loved him.
After the service, Henry Stone Music’s favorite new local artist April RaQuel (playing at this year’s Jazz In The Gardens Festival) caught up with Willie Clarke of Reid-Clarke songwriting fame, and asked him about his prolific production partner.
Here’s what Willie Clarke had to say about working with Clarence Reid.
From 1946 to 2014, Henry Stone ruled the Florida music industry with an iron fist, a brick of cash, and a warehouse full of vinyl. HSM is the last of over one hundred record labels he personally founded. This record label includes works from every decade in his sixty-five year career right up until today. Licensing available for film, samples, advertising, movies, video games, and more. Family owned and operated.
