For my #TBT #ThrowbackThursday #Classic as well as #FashionFriday – 1 page of a 16 page layout for Saks Fifth Avenue Catalog from ’96.

Choosing to release “Nightlife” featuring Gerald “Take That To The Bank” Brown, another Shalamar original to the UK first has turned out to be a great idea for my company Avitone. Check out this chart list from industry magazine Music Week – and you’ll find one multiple decades long artist, songwriter producer amongst them – Jody Watley! 70′s, 80,s, 90′,s 00′s, 10′s. Notably, I’m also the only independent self released artist of the list – no major label support.
“Nightlife“also moves to #21 Pop on Music Week and #3 Breakout single on Billboard in this weeks chart. Charts are always published a week after labels get the information.
