Stephanie Lynn re-energizes career

By Chito de la Torre

When Stephanie Lynn's contract was not renewed by EMI Latin, things looked a little less than energetic for her.

According to Stephanie Lynn, she had been having problems with EMI for about the last six months of her contract. "A recording contract is like a marriage" she said. "Things had been up and down for a while, so I decided to cut off my relations with them."

The Tejano singer added that most of the problems stemmed from strained relations with her family. Stephanie Lynn had faced legal problems with her brothers who used to be the High Energy part of Stephanie Lynn and High Energy.

If you were lucky in the last few months, you might have seen Stephanie Lynn in some clubs, mostly out of San Antonio in places like Houston and Laredo, but for the most part, things had been pretty quiet. Pero parece que el corriente esta cambiando.

Stephanie Lynn won two nominations to the Tejano Music Awards, one for Female Entertainer of the Year, and the other for Female Vocalist of the Year. And soon, she'll be recording again.

Next week, Stephanie Lynn travels to Dallas where she will work on a project with David Mares. "David has been my favorite male singer for a long time," explained Stephanie Lynn. "I'm excited about working with him."

When she returns, Stephanie Lynn will begin work on a second project. This one with well known record producer and artist in his own right, Bob Gallarza.

"I've had time to rethink my career, and spend some time studying la onda's history," she said, adding that because she is not tied to a record label this is the perfect time to work with an independent producer like Bob Gallarza.

Stephanie Lynn said that we should expect to hear her new recording, and new sound sometime in March of 1997.
