The shows have been incredible including two sold out shows in Tokyo at Billboard Live. After performing here for decades, it always feels fresh and new – it’s a blessing and I treasure each trip and each moment. Check out more photo’s : Here and also make sure to watch ‘Backstage Pass’ uploaded to my Facebopk page as well, and will add to the Jody Watley and SHALAMAR ™ Youtube Channels.
Reflecting on the year, it’s one one of entrepreneurial moves with Avitone and the release of PARADISE, which quickly sold-out at my online boutique another venture I focused on this year. We weren’t going to do CD’s but my fans overwhelmingly wanted the option.
I became the legal registered trademark owner of SHALAMAR ™ of which I am an original member. Immediately a new dynamic lineup, which will continue to evolve and get better as a work in progress to my show which is a total high energy affair to the delight of the audiences we’ve played to thus far in 2014.
Here’s to you – discard what didn’t work in 2014 and begin anew…actually I apply that everyday in life in general. Learn from each life lesson, and always keep a positive spin on life.
Thinking back to when I was a little girl, with so many dreams and goals – having my own business was always on my list. As an artist and a woman in business I’m never waiting on anyone to make it happen – that’s my advice. Go get it!
The Jody Watley Boutique continues to thrive. We’ve shipped PARADISE and other merchandise in the store to over 15 countries and despite a few kinks early on things are running smoothly.
I’ll be adding a luxury soy candle collection for the holidays. As well I’m working on a a capsule collection of luxury T-shirts as well – Jody Watley meets Rick Owens and Helmut Lang.
It’s In The Music!!
This will be my only East Coast performance this year – don’t miss it! Get your tickets today – don’t delay. It’s important to get advance ticketing to avoid cancellations (nervous promoters), to get the best seats and to plan ahead. Concert promoters monitor these things closely – so let’s pack this place out! Also on the bill Lillo Thomas for the ladies.
For what I lack in controversy or gossip headline worthiness (thankfully), it’s more than enough for me to just be about quality music, class and artistry – still. Thank you to all who appreciate, support and understand “It’s In The Music!”

Funky style – On set in the 80’s taking a break downtown Los Angeles on set of one of my classic video’s. Do you know which one?!
We saw this jeep totally by accident while scouting locations on a photo session for my tour book in 1989. It was too good to pass up. The shot only took a few minutes, renegade style and we were out of there.
All self styled – my vision was for the tour book to be all about a fashion editorial aesthetic and nothing like any tour book photo’s I’d seen with my own sense of style and individuality captured. Although not included in the current Gaultier exhibition, I was an early supporter of his designs as seen in a lot of my early photo’s and video’s, and as early as 1984 discovering him while living in London. Although this was decades ago, it’s totally timeless; picture Rihanna, Solange or one of today’s young fashionable artists – would still work.
