The new Shalamar ® Jody Watley, Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy – single is “SlowDance’ available at all digital outlets worldwide.I’m looking forward to the concerts and as well filming our first music video. We’ll be performing in more concerts this fall / winter season. These shows are can’t miss as you get the new Shalamar set and then the Jody Watley set as well – it’s an experience! More shows to be added and announced in America and internationally. For a long time I couldn’t get the Shalamar part of my repertoire to work in my show because I have so many of my own hits and have covered so many genres..even at times my earlier material didn’t work with the electronica – I’m so happy to have finally found a way to make it all work authentically together. ‘Paradise’ was the catalyst and artistic glue to allow it to come together; and with two awesome new guys who sing, dance – stellar and exciting entertainers that the ladies and gents are falling in love with. Nate and Rosero  – great to travel and hang out with as well. You have to check out our ‘Behind the scenes’ clips on Facebook/ShalamarOfficial and Instagram/Shalamarmusic

Jody Watley and SHALAMAR ® Blues Alley in Washington D.C. November 6-8, 2015.  – with DJ Lisa Moody, it will be a party every show – every night. Nights to Remember.



On Jody Watley solo front, my current release is  ‘P A R A D I S E’ a stellar modern combination of disco-soul, dance,ambient sounds and uplifting songs celebrating life, love, home and being fabulous. With all of the craziness and hatred going on in the world – it’s still good to escape with some quality music. ‘DANCER’ remixes are coming and I unveiled the cover art with design by Ray Easmon and I on my Apple Music Profile today. I’m planning to do a series of video shorts perfect for Instagram celebrating all types of dance.
