After returning home from a tour with Norman Connors, Dyer auditioned and was promptly hired as the understudy to the lead in a production of The Wiz. In 1981, she relocated from Chicago to New York City, where she continued her work in both jingles and recording. Notably, she became part of the lineup of electro-dance trio Warp 9, best remembered for their trend-setting club hits " Nunk," "Light Years Away," and "No Man Is an Island.
In 1983 Dyer took a break from recording to do yet another production of The Wiz. Soon after, she began a prolific career as a background vocalist, both on tours and recording sessions. Her first prominent road gig with Chaka Khan led to interest from James Anthony Carmichael, noted for his work with Lionel Ritchie, the Commodores, and Atlantic Starr. Carmichael had an ongoing relationship with Motown Records, which promptly signed Dyer. By 1987, the two commenced work on what would become Dyer's debut solo album, Meant to Be.
Released in spring of 1988, Meant to Be quickly picked up steam with the single release of "I Bet Ya I'll Let Ya," which reached No. 33 on the Billboard's R&B singles chart. A second single, " I Don't Feel Like Crying, " penned by Babyface and L.A. Reid, served as the follow-up. Dyer was soon given a chance to record a second album under Motown's new presidency. Unlike Meant to Be, on which she had been given no creative input, she selected all of the songs - and co-wrote several for her eponymous 1990 release. This album effectively showcased Dyer's abilities as an across-the-board singer, equally at home with powerful soul and pop ballads, jazzy R&B tunes, and funk jams.
Since that incredible start to her career, Dyer has gone on to work with such artist as Sting, Roberta Flack, Lenny Kravitz, Cher, the J. Geils Band, Boz Scaggs, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, just to name a few.
