Phaedra (aka Phaedra Butler), a contemporary R&B artist who claims a four-octave vocal range, has been active since the latter half of the 1980s. After she sang background for album sessions with the likes of Jean Carn, fellow Bostonians New Kids on the Block, Pieces of a Dream, and Evelyn "Champagne" King, she became one-third of Lady Soul. Guided and produced by Maurice Starr, the group appeared on the soundtrack for Sister Act and released an album in 1992 but was short-lived. Phaedra re-emerged the following decade by recording with Walter Beasley and contributing several songs to the soundtrack for Mo'Nique's Hair Show. After she co-founded an artist production company called Artist Live Global Village, Phaedra worked as music supervisor for comedian Kevin Hart and appeared on Kevin Hart: What Now? (The Mixtape Presents Chocolate Droppa), released on Motown in 2016. Her proper debut solo album, Heart of a Woman, followed later that year. ~ Andy Kellman
