In Frontline Records Rewind Episode 69, executive producer, Adel Meisenheimer, continues her conversation with Sandra Stephens and Allegra Parks. These ladies sang background vocals for Jon Gibson, Scott Blackwell, Lanny Cordola and other Frontline artists. Though it has been about 25 years since they wrote, recorded and toured hit songs, they still recall them and treat listeners with acappella intros and even a new Rewind intro.
The episode focuses on Sandra’s participation with Lanny Cordola in various projects he produced for Frontline Records –and we do mean “Various”! Sandra’s deep appreciation and gratitude for this eclectic artist/producer is rooted in lessons communicated that “This is who you are, and this is who you can be musically.” In the 1990’s and even to this day, when Lanny asks Sandra to write or sing on a project, she doesn’t hesitate to show up.
The show takes us from Reggae Worship II, to Blues For The Child to a far-out trans music album, Symbiotica, where listeners can learn to recognize Sandra’s soulfully low, modern R&B, jazz-influenced, pitch-perfect voice.
Sandra released her first solo album titled He Can and it is a must-have CD! Listeners get a little taste of it. Allegra also released a solo album in 2014 titled Just To Praise and Worship You, and a track from this exciting Gospel-flavored project closes the show.
