Listening to Joshua Scott's debut CD for the first time one may contemplate, wonder, or even analyze, trying to place what they hear into a specific category of music. However, it is soon realized that categorization is least important when it comes to this album. Regardless of genre, style, or category (type) this music, simply put, is anointed. It clearly delivers the message of Christ's love, grace and mercy in such a plethora of ways that it is guaranteed to penetrate the heart of any and every one who hears it. Joshua Scott was born on March 12, 1986 into a musical, Christian family. His father, Dr.Ron Scott, a musician himself, had learned to play from an early age and had since toured the world with various artists. His mother, Dr. LeRhuchandre (Kookie) Scott found her musical niche in singing and recording Christian Country music, as well as being a part of the cast of various Chicago Theatre companies. Both his parents grew up in the church, both being the children of pastors. They would eventually found their own ministry in 2002, Beyond the Veil Ministries International,where Joshua is the Minister of music. Naturally, Joshua found an affinity for music at an early age, first trying his hand at drums, at 8 Yrs. Old, then piano and organ. After mastering these, to a pleasing level of expression as well as realizing his vocal talents, he went on to take violin lessons and taught himself to play the guitar. Intermittently, of course, he has become a skillful vocal stylist as well, which you will hear in his selections. As a lover of all art forms Joshua is also a 14 year vested member of the Screen Actors Guild. He has played major rolls, appearing in feature films and commercials, danced and is equally skilled with a paint brush and canvas, for leisure. Joshua's true love though, is MUSIC. In 2006 he heard the voice of God prompting him to begin work on his own project. Struggling to find his niche, he stayed in the family's home studio, recording music that he was never quite comfortable with. It was not until he gave his project over completely to God, and was willing to surpass what others thought his work should sound like, that Joshua began to hear the sounds from heaven that allowed him to write, sing, play, produce, and record this debut CD project. Enjoy and be transformed by the musical prophecy of Joshua Scott.
