Despite having been tone deaf at a young age, Mosie Lister was studying harmony and composition by the time he was seventeen. By the late 1940s, Lister was writing gospel songs for numerous well-known gospel groups and when the Statesmen (founded in 1948 by Hovie Lister, no relation) used him as an arranger in 1948, Lister introduced harmony techiques that are still in use today in this type of music. Lister was actually the first lead singer for the Statesmen Quartet until he decided to leave in order to concentrate on other aspects of the gospel music business. Lister composed many well known gospels, including "His Hand In Mine" and "He Knows Just What I Need," both recorded by Elvis. The Statesmen's recording of "Where No One Stands Alone" was released first on their own Statesmen label, as the B-side of record number 1061 ("Some Glad Day" was the A-side). Full recording credits were shown as, "The Statesmen Quartet Featuring: Doy Ott With Hovie Lister, Piano.
