Before he became part of the hit a capella group, Rockapella, on the hit PBS geography game show "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, Scott Leonard was just a home grown boy with a passion for baseball.
That passion for baseball won him a scholarship to attend University of Tampa in Florida. While there he decided to become a major in voice. He worked at various dinner theaters before becoming an employee at Disney World in Orlando FL. From there he transferred to Tokyo Disney. There he fronted a Disney Rock band (?) and met his beautiful wife (strangely enough, she too had transferred from Orlando and was from the F.L. area.)
A awhile later, while browsing through a music trade paper, Scott found an advertisement for a high tenor position with a NYC based a capella group and sent in a demo. About six months later he heard back from the group and was asked to come for a personal audition. He left that night on the next flight out from Tampa. He watched the group perform the next night and then personally auditioned. He was offered the spot then and there. Of course he took and thus a new revelation of Rockapella was born.
Scott decided to take his new group's vocal talents to Japan, where he'd already made connections. He sent a friend a demo tape and they snatched up a Japanese Recording deal.
Prior to that, Rockapella had been asked to be the 'house band' on the PBS children's geography game show, "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego".
Scott and Rockapella also lent they're voices to the "roach choir" in the 1996 movie Joe's Apartment, and Scott himself served as Sound Producer on a 1992 documentary.
Scott and Rockapella have released 7 albums in Japan, 2 independent releases in the United States and 4 albums under J-Bird Records also in the United States. Scott himself has released 2 solo albums, My Favorite the Bee Gees and Flying Faders, both released in Japan.… Collapse
