Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matt 28:19-20 (KJV)



Dr. Leonard Scott

Looking around the Gospel label landscape, you can’t help but notice the new players. Many prominent labels today were unknown as few as five years ago. And once-solid music houses such as Light Records, Nashboro, CGI and Birthright are no more.

So it’s all the more remarkable that in May 2001, independently-owned Tyscot Records celebrated a full twenty-five years in Gospel. There’s a wealth of history behind this label, with pioneer, perserverer and founder Dr. Leonard Scott being at least partially responsible for myriads of ministries to the nation.

While the most prominent artist ever to have resided on the Tyscot roster may be John P. Kee (and in fact, he has retained his close ties with the label), other names such as Kirk Franklin (during his Trinity Temple Mass Choir days), Kim Burrell (again with Trinity Temple), Oscar Hayes, Mark Hubbard, Deitrick Haddon and so many more have all seen Tyscot involved in their early years of ministry.

So grab a coffee and sit back with us as we reminisce with Tyscot CEO, founder, and practicing dentist, Dr. Leonard Scott
