Scott White

Profile:
R&B singer, songwriter.

Scott White lives today in Washington D.C. and works as a minister of music, as a studio singer/arranger and as a vocal coach and arranger for Broadway musicals e.g.. He has perhaps adopted a low profile from the R&B scene, but not from the spiritual music scene. As a musical director of The Scott White Family, he s a man with a mission: delivering compelling, soul lifting gospel music and touring the country with America s largest gospel-singing family named after his granddad. And this my brothers and sisters, truly is a heartwarming Success...That Never Ends.
Scott White only album, Success...Never Ends (two titles from tracks on the album stitched together), received critical acclaim and offered a solid match between White s gospel-infused vocals and Song s bright production sound and contemporary songwriting. Scott White showcased his versatility through a balanced mixture of smart dancefloor tunes and silky soul songs. The urban R&B set included the club favorite and sole single off the album I Don t Understand It , the CD-only bonus track Been Gone Too Long , the sophisticated dancer Hypnotized reminiscent of Save The Overtime (For Me) by Gladys Knight & the Pips , producer Darryl Duncan s one contribution Never Ends , the techno-funk beater Love Emergency that might as well have been fabricated by David Frank and Mic Murphy of The System and the scorching ballads Success and Time Has A Hold On Love , both co-written by White. The seasoned session singers Janice Dempsey and Vaneese Thomas provided the backing vocals. By the time that the album was released it was unfortunately poorly promoted in the US and failed to get the recognition and sales it naturally deserved. But competing with R&B heroes Bobby Brown, Freddie Jackson, Keith Sweat, New Edition, Al B. Sure!, Guy or Terence Trent D Arby was a tall order in 1988. Scott White interestingly enjoyed more popularity with the R&B crowd overseas than at home. Over the years, the obscure LP has continued to be a sought after item among R&B fans.
