Soon after arriving in Lynne was offered a tour with Bill Withers. When they finished the tour, she quickly got popular on the Los Angeles music circuit as a local artist doing her own gigs and as a background singer.
Her next big audition was with Lou Rawls. She landed that job and met Rickey Minor, who provided her a constant stream of television work including The Grammy’s, MTV Music Awards, The UNCF Telethon, VH1 Awards, America’s Got Talent, American Idol and most recently A Performance at the White House for President Barack Obama.
If there is such a moment, the single most defining moment in her career was the opportunity to join Stevie Wonder’s band in 1986. The audition was a cattle call with hundreds of singers and Lynne was the only one who was chosen that night.
Besides touring with Stevie Wonder, Lynne has explored many musical ventures with artists such as Phil Collins, Whitney Houston, Babyface, Christian McBride, Queen Latifah, Stanley Clarke, Joe Zawinul, Barbara Streisand, B.B.King, Elton John, Nancy Wilson, Dave Brubeck, George Duke, Kenny Loggins, James Ingram, Patti Austin, Eric Benet, and many more. Her recording career as an artist began in 1990 as part of a duo, Linsey, where she was the voice of the group on their Quiet Storm debut “Perfect Love”. Her solo debut release, ”Flow” in 2006 gained critical acclaim here and abroad.
“Lady” is a ten-song tribute to Miss Billie Holiday. This much-anticipated release promises not to disappoint with such guest artist as George Duke, Christian McBride, Billy Childs, Kirk Whalum Gerald Albright and many others.
