Clarence Hill III, affectionately known as “T-Lee” was born with music in his veins. Practically his entire family is musically inclined. His Dad, in particular (who played 3 instruments), played a huge role in Clarence’s development of love and appreciation for music. By the age of 2, he was playing drums for his grandparents gospel quartet then, at the age of 15, he gained interest in keyboards and the rest is history. From that point on, anything with black and white keys was his playground. He’s performed with and played for celebrities such as, Anita Baker, Robert Glasper, Tamela Mann, Ciara, Tyler Perry, and a host of others. A few of his favorite pianists are Chick Corea, H erbie Hancock, and Russell Ferante, to name a few. Clarence also has an incredible jazz fusion band, pinning there own genre as “journey music,” known as The 4 Korners. Without a doubt, Music is one thing that Clarence was put on earth to do and he does it with integrity, love and passion, with the hope that his gift of music touches the hearts and souls of his listeners, leaving them inspired and uplifted.
