Susaye Greene has stockpiled a lot of credits to her resumé without becoming a very recognizable name to the public, in part because it wasn't until 2002 that her first solo album appeared. Prior to that, she was perhaps best known for being in the Supremes for a couple of years, longafter their hitmaking heyday, forming part of the lineup with original Supreme Mary Wilson and Scherrie Payne. She appeared on their last two albums and also recorded, wrote, arranged, and produced the Partners album with Payne. She also wrote Deniece Williams' hit "Free"; was in Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove; co-wrote, with Wonder, Michael Jackson's "I Can't Help It," from Jackson's smash Off the Wall album; sang with Ray Charles and Harry Belafonte; sang on jazzman Courtney Pine's "Children of the Ghetto"; managed singers, writers, producers, and actors; and worked as a book illustrator. She also managed to produce and write or co-write all but one of the songs on her debut solo work, No Fear Here. The record is a versatile but bland assemblage of contemporary R&B styles, with some adult contemporary, dance, and show music influences.
