Larry Stock

The writing career of Larry Stock can be described as nothing short of prolific. The songwriter got his start in the industry as a classically trained musician. However, after graduating college during the great depression, he could only get sporadic work playing evenings in the clubs, which left a lot of time for writing music. The young artist quickly found it easier to make a living writing songs than performing concerts. Stock was successfully writing and selling songs before getting any real recognition with his first big hit “Umbrella Man” in 1938.

Over the course of his career, Larry Stock churned out scores of hits, but used to say he had thousands of unpublished songs as well. Besides “Umbrella Man,” Stock’s most notable songs probably are “Blueberry Hill” and “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You” which are both now deeply ingrained in American musical culture. In 1998 Stock was inducted posthumously into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
