Biography

Singer Lynne Fiddmont has spent virtually her entire career supporting others. An in-demand backing vocalist, she has worked with such artists as Patti Austin, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls, Phil Collins, Yolanda Adams and her mentor, the late great Carl Anderson. As busy as she was in the background for others, she never quite got around to moving to the front…until now.

With the release of Flow, on her own MidLife Records, Fiddmont makes the plunge, writing, co-producing and singing a tasty 9-song collection of jazz-tinged adult soul songs. Urban Adult Contemporary radio was rife twenty years ago with talented female singers such as Angela Bofill. Anita Baker and Phyllis Hyman, who were releasing melodic, accessible music that spoke to grown ups. But 2006 is a different era, and a somewhat traditional female adult soul disc like Flow now sounds refreshingly offbeat.

Raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Fiddmont got the singing bug while a teenager, and was soon singing in local coffee houses. A tape of her voice sent to the Crusaders’ Wilton Felder landed for her a spot touring with that group, with Lynne handling lead vocals on such songs as “Street Life.” She then briefly attended Boston’s prestigious Berklee School of Music before moving to Los Angeles to further her musical life.
