* We said goodbye to a dear friend and Blue Canoe staple - Yonrico Scott. Mr. Scott is on our hearts and minds tonight. We are grateful for the music he left the universe and may he rest in peace.
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news on the passing of Blue Canoe Recording Artist Yonrico Scott. Mr. Scott was a drummer, percussionist, vocalist, visual artist, educator, and a true friend and champion of our label. Yonrico released four albums for Blue Canoe and worked with many in the industry such as Derek Trucks, Earl Klugh, Whitney Houston, Peabo Bryson, Col. Bruce Hampton, Royal Southern Brotherhood and so many more. The people he touched with his gifts is unmeasurable. His spirit will live on and we ask that you pray for his family during this difficult time.
"A man in harmony with life and spirit, always in search for the new positive energy ..." - Yonrico Scott
