Sir Coxsone - "the father of reggae"

The name Clement Seymour “Sir Coxsonne” Dodd is synonymous with the development of Reggae music. Mr. Dodd has been the recipient of countless accolades, awards and acknowledgments (including the Jamaica Order of Distinction, the third highest honor issued by the Jamaican government) for his immense contributions to the island’s music industry as sound system operator, record producer and founder of Studio One, Jamaica’s first and only self sufficient record label. Mr. Dodd’s tireless endeavors, which span six decades, have set an imposing standard of artistic excellence and played a pivotal role in molding Reggae into a globally embraced musical force.
Legendary music pioneer and founder of Studio One, Sir Clement 'Coxsone' Dodd, passed away in Kingston from heart complications on Tuesday May 4, 2004. Sir Coxsone was in the studio with Jennifer Lara and Bunny Brown when it appeared that he didn't feel well.
