Lisa Taylor - Secrets Of The Heart (1992)

Little is known about singer Lisa Taylor aside from her work in the 1980s and 90s. Apparently she started her singing career as a session singer in the 1980s, and in the late 80s she joined the funk group Rose Royce as their lead singer. She released one album with the group, Perfect Lover, before they disbanded for good. After that she returned to background singing, appearing on several popular albums and touring with Patti Labelle. Perhaps with Patti's help, she managed to sign a deal with Giant Records in 1992 for a solo album. It featured her soulful voice over several ballads and a few upbeat pop/R&B numbers. Her first single, "Did You Pray Today", managed to just crack the top 40 of the Billboard R&B charts, and her second single, the title track, managed to peak on the same chart at #41. That same year the album track "Better Late Than Never" appeared on the Class Act soundtrack. Then in 1993 her track "Don't Waste My Time" appeared on the soundtrack for Meteor Man. It was released as a single but barely squeaked into the top 100 on theR&B chart, and Lisa went back to session singing. In 1996 she joined the duo of Les Pierce and Bernard Wise in Colour Club and featured on their second album, In The Flow. They released one more album together, Sexuality, before they broke up. Lisa again went back to backing vocals, and apparently once again toured with Patti Labelle. Here was yet another attractive and powerful vocalist who got lost in the crazy days of the late 80s/early 90s, thanks to major labels snatching up every pretty and talented female vocalist they could and sticking only with those who, well, stuck! With her talent, there's no doubt she's still doing her thing today, though.
