Jody Watley. Yoshi’s Oakland Days Away.

My band, dancers, crew and I are all looking forward to the concert this week. It’s a “Paradise” pre-release (we’ll have new Paradise merchandise and Nightlife vinyl among other items), celebrating the success of my single “Nightlife” which was Top 5 in the UK and Top 20 here in the U.S. Dance. The meet and greet (our chance to say hello face to face) and what will be a wonderful evening of music and love. The VIP Meet and Greet was sold out, but I’ve asked that they extend for a few more. A night to dress up or dress down, but you know I’m all about being fabulous. Take that outfit out from the back of your closet that you’ve been ‘waiting’ for the right occasion to wear – May 29, it’s your time, it will be good for your soul! What’s left of tickets: HERE

This photo is from my kitchen. I’ve always tried to create a sanctuary of love in my home, flowers, candles, laughter, good food and good vibes. When my children were little, their friends would always say our place was so peaceful and later soothing as they became teens. There’s a song called “Sanctuary” on the forthcoming “Paradise.” A positive attitude makes every day better and enables us to hopefully exude something positive in the world, and if you have children or grandchildren it’s like paying it forward in this crazy often stressful world and our encounters with agitated people – remember your attitude is YOUR choice and what better place than to surround yourself with joy than home?

Jody Watley Wants To Take Us To Paradise.

 

JodyWatley_Paradise_Nightlife

“Paradise is basically a party record created and inspired in classic soul dance records in many ways..a celebration of feel good music, with lyrics that make you feel like getting out, or turning up the volume in your car. Paradise is about living life and creating special moments today with music as the motivator, the backdrop. I’m very much about that – to remind people of that. There’s enough time to worry and other heavy things. In these songs I want everyone to feel an sense of escape and joy from beginning to end. Paradise is about the celebration of being alive and having a good time – especially for my core diehard fans who have been with me no matter what and no care that I’m older. They know I’m still fabulous and so are they!” – Jody Watley

‘Paradise’ – with co-production by Mark De-Clive Lowe, Count De Money, Soulpersona and Luminodisco.

Everyone’s journey is different. Don’t waste energy comparing your life or journey to another’s. Take what you need for inspiration and discard what is not useful or motivating you as you move forward. That’s what I do. Be confident in your own shoes!
