Lee Bailey has always been a consistent supporter of my music and career, dating back to when I was a member of Shalamar, and he had a popular segment that played on stations across the country “Lee Bailey’s Radioscope.” He was one of the first to interview me when my solo debut ‘Jody Watley’ was released in 1987. I’m very thankful for his continued support of my music, perseverance and artistry. #itsinthemusic

What can be about Jody new cd “Paradise”, other it should come with an warning label, play when you want to hear music that will move you body and soul! 1. Nightlife… Just classic dance song, from top to bottom 2. Dancer… Work it… She calling all dancers to come to the floor, but beats from this jam, calls you no matter what,,, I feel the sounds from “Thank God It’s Friday” in this. 3. The Dawn… Jody Watley give us a another example why she was seen as a great dancer on Soul Train,,, yea, yea, 4. Tonight’s the Night… Fair warning playing this if you’re at the gym, running or bike riding, it will pump you up into doing more sit-ups for that sexy outfit you want to wear that night,,, and you will hear this jam at the clubs…. Dance till the sun comes up. 5. Paradise… So chic, cool, slick,,, and great just to shake your head to,,, put a smile on you face, and a vision of the islands. Or is that just me…. 6. Sanctuary… In just a few words … Grown folks music,,, I have is jam on my playlist with other jams from Jody, Sia, Thievery Corporation and her good friend Rahsaan Patterson. Thank you Jody Watley for such sexy, wonderful music ‪#‎paradise‬ ‪#‎itsinthemusic‬

Chris Keen,

JODY WATLEY RELEASES NEW ALBUM AND MAKES EACH MUSICAL MOMENT

‘PARADISE’

Limited Edition CD Pre-Orders Sells Out In Less Than One Week

Los Angeles, CA – July 28, 2014: Established as one of the most prominent visionaries of her era,
whose influence remains a key touchstone in contemporary pop music, Grammy Award winner,
Jody Watley returns with her glamorous and funky new album, PARADISE. As executive producer at the helm of her own label, Avitone, Watley continues to convey her commitment as a savvy entrepreneur. Proving that quality rules over quantity, pre-orders for the 6 track album sold out in less than one week. PARDISE is available world-wide on iTunes, Amazon and other digital music outlets. A limited edition CD which was encouraged by her devoted fans, that includes the bonus track Everlasting, is available exclusively on Jody Watley’s online boutique (www.jodywatley.net).

The singer, songwriter, producer sighted the lack of attention spans in today’s society which prompted her to take a classic approach in recording PARADISE. She was reminded that many timeless albums were recorded in the 70’s and early 80’s that had as few as 7 songs on an album, and with Isaac Hayes’ ‘Hot Buttered Soul’ having only 4.

“It’s about quality, not quantity,” says Jody. “I think that albums with a lot of songs are out of touch with the times we live in and today’s record buyer – many artists and companies are holding on to outdated practices. Perhaps I’ll be the first to encourage other artists to make shorter albums, with better songs and a greater music impact.”

Summer 2014 has been all about the return of disco and house to the mainstream, but nobody does it quite like Jody Watley… and she is back to show these children exactly how it’s done! …”Paradise” proves that Miss Watley is in no way ready to slow down …. This nostalgic collection of floor-fillers is exactly what fans have been longing for. “Paradise” ranks among Jody Watley’s best work.

Inspired by her well documented roots in disco, soul, pop, dance and electronica music, Watley, who has mastered a career in keeping dance and R&B music relevant to today, continues her legacy on PARADISE. Jody continues to put genuine artistry and quality into everything she does, making each musical moment into a quality experience. The album incorporates live instruments meshed with the EDM direction she’s successfully delivered for more than a decade.

Former Prince NPG guitarist Levi Seacer plays on the thumper The Dawn, with live strings courtesy of the critically acclaimed Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and avant-garde dance jazz impresario, Mark DeClive-Lowe (The Dawn, Paradise, Tonight’s The Night). Other producers featured on PARADISE include Italy’s Luminodisco (Dancer), France’s Count de Money (Nightlife) and the U.K.’s hot producers, Soulpersona (Sanctuary).

‘PARADISE” features the international hit single “NIGHTLIFE” (Top 5 Urban, Top 10 Commercial Pop UK, Top 20 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play).
