William Bell !

The artist, songwriter and producer known as William Bell was born William Yarbrough in Memphis, Tennessee, on July 16, 1939. He developed his songwriting career at the legendary Stax label, and would be a guiding force in the evolution of the Stax sound. In 1961 had released his first solo effort, You Don't Miss Your Water (Til the Well Runs Dry), which would be one of the early hits for the label.
In 1967 he released his first solo album, The Soul of a Bell.
Albert King had a hit with Bell’s song Born Under a Bad Sign, and Bell released two more albums for Stax, Relating" and Bound To Happen." In 1969 Bell moved to Atlanta and started his own label, Peachtree.
