It’s been a pretty good year for songwriter, producer, musician Andrew Scott. He’s still reeling in the excitement of his first Grammy nomination for the Trin-i-Tee 5:7 Angel & Chanelle album. The female-duo received a nomination for Best Gospel Album earlier this year. Scott wrote and produced the melodious, “Some Kind of Amazing.” His relationship goes back to when the women were a trio. “I played for them as a teenager,” he recalls, “but this was my first placement as a writer and producer. It’s kind of funny how God works and brings things back around.”
Scott’s other major milestone for the year is as executive producer of Armor On, the acclaimed solo project for Dawn Richard formerly of Danity Kane and Diddy’s Dirty Money. The independent release hit the top of the iTunes chart, was a Top 5 album on Billboard’s indie Heatseakers Chart, a Top 30 album on their R&B/Hip-Hop Chart, and made the Billboard Top 200. “All we did was release the project through iTunes,” says Scott. “For it to be as successful as it was—was crazy!”
Andrew Scott is an accomplished musician, who plays several instruments, including piano, guitar, drums and several brass items like trumpet, tuba, and cornet. He is currently working on new music with Omarion, Roc Nation recording artist Bridgette Kelly, and Dawn Richard’s Golden Heart album coming in October.
As CEO of ASA Public Relations, Scott is a multi-faceted entrepreneur. “I’ve been running my PR company for five years; they go hand in hand,” he says. “I’ve done music PR for Dawn, Snoop Dogg, Omarion, Keyshia Cole, Monica, and Lyfe Jennings. As I make music, I’m also answering phone calls, emails, and sending off press kits at the same time. Music PR is something I do in my sleep.”
