Scott Hoying is an American singer, composer, pianist, and the creator of ‘Pentatonix,’ the world’s most renowned a cappella group. He is the group’s baritone lead and backup singer. In the third season of NBC’s reality show “The Sing-Off,” the band won and secured a deal with Sony Music. Scott has been a musician and singer since he was a toddler. He aspired to one day reach the pinnacle of the music business as a child.
He formed an A Cappella band with his childhood friends Kristin Maldonado and Mitchell Grassi, and subsequently with Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, after learning about the tryouts for the reality program “The Sing-Off.” The ensemble wowed the audience with their melodies, vocal harmonies, beatboxing, and riffing, winning them worldwide acclaim.
Scott has released three EPs and four full-length albums since their triumph, two of which were recorded during the Christmas season, with his five-piece band. Almost all of the group’s tracks have been charted on the Billboard music charts in the United States. He and his bandmates have also garnered several important music prizes and have played at numerous music events. He has gone on two big tours to promote his albums and songs, the most recent of which was a globe tour.
Scott Hoying was born in Arlington, Texas on September 17, 1991. He went to ‘Martin High School’ in his hometown where he grew up. Mitchell Grassi has been Scott’s closest buddy since boyhood.
Scott and Mitchell attended the same high school as Kristin Maldonado and were close friends. The three decided to start their own band in order to compete in a local radio competition and meet the cast of ‘Glee.’
They recorded a version of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” and sent it to the radio station. Despite the fact that they did not meet the cast of Glee since they lost the competition, they were quite famous at school.
They performed together at school occasions as well as at neighborhood concerts. Scott’s parents were always there for him. In 2010, he graduated from high school and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a music degree at the University of Southern California.
As a baritone singer, he joined the ‘SoCal VoCals’ A Cappella group during university, which helped him build confidence singing on stage as an adult.
He learned about the tryouts for “The Sing-Off” in the midst of his graduation. He persuaded Mitch Grassi and Kristie Maldonado to accompany him in order to relive the enchantment of his boyhood and realize his dream.
To round out the trio, he reached out to Avi Kaplan, a vocal bassist and YouTube beatboxing phenomenon known as ‘Kevin Olusola.’ They established the A Cappella ensemble together. Scott dropped out of college to focus on the organization and assist it to win the competition.
Scott and the other members of the group met the day before their reality TV audition. They recognized one other’s skills and encouraged one another to give it their all on the program; with each other’s help, they breezed through the auditions and were quickly promoted to the live performances.
The ensemble performed at astonishing vocal ranges on the program, and the judges were soothed by the variation in voice textures. Scott wowed the judges and crowd on the program with his flawless harmonies in songs including ‘Piece of My Heart,’ ‘Born to the Wild,’ ‘Let’s Get It On,’ and ‘Without You.’
Scott and his band opened the finale episode with David Guetta’s “Without You,” followed by 98 Degrees’ “Give Me Just One Night.” With the group’s winning song, ‘Eye of the Tiger,’ he went on to win the third season of the competition in 2011.
Scott started working with Madison Gate Records in 2012, under the direction of producer Ben Bram. The group’s debut EP, dubbed ‘PTX Volume 1’, was released in June. It hit number 14 on the Billboard 200 and number 5 on the digital charts in the United States.
He embarked on a home tour in 2012 to promote the newly released extended play. He gave performances in thirty different cities around the United States. His first tour was a huge success, with all of his shows selling out.
Later in November, he released the ‘PTXMas’ Christmas EP. Most of his gigs during the holiday season were scheduled for events including ‘Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE!,’ ‘Holiday Christmas Parade,’ and ‘94.7 The Wave Christmas Concert.’
A Christmas album was published shortly after as a deluxe version of the EP. The song ‘Little Drummer Boy’ reached number one on the Holiday Chart and number twenty-four on the Billboard Album Charts in the United States.
Scott and other members of PTX visited the set of ‘The Ellen De Generes Show’ in 2013 to promote a new EP called ‘PTX Vol II.’ The following year, they teamed up with ‘RCA Records’ to release their first official album, ‘PTX-I & II.’
Scott also became a lyricist with his following album, ‘That’s Christmas to Me.’ He co-wrote the album’s title tune, which was released in late 2014. It debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 as soon as it hit the airwaves.
His third full-length album, named ‘Pentatonix’ after the band, was released in 2015. When advertising the album, Scott boasted that it had no cover songs and that all of the tracks were his compositions.
His band’s fourth album is titled ‘A Pentatonix Christmas.’ ‘Good to Be Bad’ and ‘The Christmas Sing-Along’ were two original songs on the album, which was published in 2016. The album topped the ‘Holiday Album Charts and was rated second on the Billboard 200.
His a cappella trio became the first to top the ‘Holiday Album’ and ‘Holiday Song’ charts in 2011. Since 1962, the ‘PTXmas’ album has held the record for being the highest-charting holiday album.
The RIAA awarded his group’s record ‘That’s Christmas To Me’ gold certification. It was declared Platinum on December 10th, 2014, after 14 days. It was still in the Holiday Albums two years after its debut, and it was certified Double Platinum in 2016.
Scott’s first album, ‘Pentatonix,’ landed at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. It sold over 98,000 copies and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 2016.
In 2013, he won his first prize in the category of ‘Response of the Year’ at the ‘YouTube Music Awards.’ That year, his channel’s massive music video views surpassed a billion.
He also won the ‘Streamy Awards’ for ‘Draft Punk’ in the category of ‘best cover Song’ in 2014. In 2015, he was named ‘Artist of the Year’ at the ‘YouTube Music Awards.’
Scott suggested the name Pentatonix to the other members, and it was inspired by the pentatonic music scale, which has five notes in each octave. They matched the scale’s five notes, according to the members, and the only change they made was to replace the final letter with an ‘x’ to make the name more appealing. The trio received $200,000 in addition to a recording deal with Sony Music for winning the aforementioned event.
Pentatonix presently performs its songs at sold-out performances all around the world. They also have a YouTube channel called PTXofficial, which has over 15 million followers and has had over three billion views. Pentatonix’s members, together with producer Ben Bram, have won two Grammys: the first for their version of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” and the second for the “Daft Punk” medley. The trio also had a cameo appearance in the film “Pitch Perfect 2.”
In August 2013, Hoying and Grassi launched a vlogging channel called Superfruit. They upload new videos every Tuesday, and the channel has over three million members as of early 2019, with the number continuing to rise. The group’s three-song covers on their YouTube account have received over 11 million views to date. Grace Helbig, Tyler Oakley, Miranda Sings, Maisie Williams, Tori Kelly, Todrick Hall, and Victoria Justice are just a few of the celebrities with whom they’ve worked. “Evolution of Miley Cyrus,” “Beyonce,” and “Frozen Medley with Kristie Maldonado” are among their covers.
Hoying began working with Madison Gate Records in 2012, and the band issued its debut EP in June of that year. The EP is named “PTX Volume 1.” It got so successful that it reached number 14 on the Billboard 200 in the United States. It was also at number five on the digital charts. Scott embarked on a tour to promote their freshly released EP the same year. He was able to perform in 30 different cities around the United States. The tour was a huge success, with all of his shows sold out.
