A Brief History

Cindy Scott was born Sundray Tucker and raised in North Philadelphia.  Having Lynda Laurence

of The Supremes as her sister and Tammi Terrell and Bunny Sigler as cousins, Cindy was destined

to sing, and by the age of 14 she was doing just that with sister Lynda and later with the Ordettes,

which included Patti LaBelle.  

 

Sundray Tucker became Cindy Scott after a deal went sour with Don Robey and she was forced to

change her name and record incognito.  She soon began collaborating with Leon Huff and in 1967

had two releases on Veep Records for producers John Madara and Dave White -- "I Love You

Baby" and Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long."

John's Memories

Cindy Scott sang background vocals on many Madara/White sessions.  She was always a joy to

work with.  The sides that we did record with her got exposure in Europe and were successful

there. 

What Happened Next?

When Veep closed their doors, she signed with Neptune Records for two duets with Cousin,

Bunny Siegler.  After five years as Cindy Scott, she went back to using her real name, Sundray

Tucker. After several years away from Philadelphia, she returned in 1999 and recorded an album

for a smallrecord company in England entitled "The Loving Country."  She has also recorded a two

volume set with Lynda Laurence and Scherrie Payne called "Driving Force" and has an album,

"Live & Red Hot," which was released in the UK in 2002 and features 45 minutes of a live show

performed in England in 2000.
