A deeply soulful R&B vocalist with jazz undertones, Ada Dyer has not yet reached the commercial plateau equal to her artistic acumen. The Chicago-born performer’s emotional and sultry style is just as assured as that of revered talents like Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin, but unfortunately she has not had the promotional backing of either. Dyer began her music career while still in high school. After graduating, she continued to work with local talent playing nightclubs, as well as colleges throughout the city.
In 1981, Dyer relocated from Chicago to New York City. There she embarked upon a prolific career in theater and jingles; she’s also recorded with such artists as Steely Dan, Cher, Sting, Luther Vandross, Amy Grant, Marc Cohn, Roberta Flack, Michael Bolton……….she has toured internationally with the likes of Sting, Chaka Khan, Lenny Kravitz, Roberta Flack, J Geils Band, Boz Scaggs……..just to name a few.
