Just added – Excited to be going to Chengdu, China in June to perform as a part of “Night of Global Fortune” at Chengdu Sports Centre during the prestigious Fortune Global  Summit.

On the fashion front – look for me on the new Bravo series Dukes of Melrose airing Wednesday April 17 in an episode featuring Dita Von Teese and lots of Jean Paul-Gaultier.

This week will be all about the eclectic underground with a guest appearance at Brooklyn Bowl Friday April 19, 2013 with French Horn Rebellion for a couple of songs we collaborated on. Details here: http://www.brooklynbowl.com/event/235775-french-horn-rebellion-party-brooklyn/

On April 27, I’ll be doing another brief guest appearance with another collaborator Mark de Clive-Lowe at the Spring edition 2013 of his CHURCH residency at The LIft. Details here: http://mashibeats.blogspot.com/

My forthcoming new single “Nightlife” which I wrote with as is co-produced by Count De Money out of the UK courtesy of Bill Coleman and Peace Bisquit is scheduled for this summer. The single is a glamorous slice of soul, disco and funk – Nile Rodgers will be proud. We’re looking at the end of June as a target release timeframe. I’ll be posting another preview soon, as well as a few concert highlights from my recent successful run at Billboard Live Japan.

Partying With The Dukes Of Melrose

jodywatley_dukesofmelrosepartyI attended a smashing party this week presented by Harper’s Bazaar and MCM for Bravo Television’s upcoming new series “The Dukes Of Melrose”, starring Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver of Decades Inc.  A wonderful time was enjoyed by all! Festive music playlist, full bar and delicious hors d’oeuvres

I came out of my basic black and rocked a vibrant green tunic by Stella McCartney – going for an effortless chic vibe. I kept the make-up minimal with a slight smoky eye, lashes, bronzer on my cheeks and a hint of a NARS pale peach color (can’t read the name on the bottom..need a magnifying glass, lol). The studded black MCM clutch gave it the look a hint of edge, as well as a spiked bracelet – fashion forward. My pumps had a hint of orange for an additional burst of color. I almost chose to wear fuchsia pink pumps but really happy I went with the nude, orange and black combo.

He’s so excited about the show as are all of his friends, clients and family many of whom were in attendance at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California for the soiree and preview clips.

A few nightlife snapshots of charity event (it was humid and nearly 100 degrees) benefitting The Children’s Institute held at The London Hotel on the Rooftop at The London Hotel in West Hollywood.
