“In this modern climate, artists have to find ways to keep relevant and get their music heard. Our girl Jody Watley knows the deal and has taken advantage of the ever-changing landscape in our playlist culture by offering up myriad singles and EPs. That includes the release of her latest effort, the Winter Nights EP.
Winter Nights sets the mood to offset the chill of winter with “Winter Nights (Prelude).. ” –

Cover InFashion with actor Nicholas Cage who was just starting out for the most part as an actor. We’d never met and both of us were a bit shy so it was awkward at first but we ended up having a fun shoot. The “Hunk Meets Funk” is a bit cringe though!
Jody Watley: A Journey Into Sound rolled into Washington D.C.’s historic The Howard Theatre on Saturday February 8, 2020. The show begins with disco funk and soul, where I’m joined by SRL on a few of my Shalamar hits before we move on to our own releases (The Mood & The Passion) seamlessly transitioning the over 90 minute show into house, R&B, bossa nova jazz, a paired down funky rendition of “Friends”, a piano and vocal only “Everything” along hits from the 80’s, 90’s, Skin Deep from the just released ‘Winter Nights’ EP along with a the underground critically acclaimed aptly titled 2000 electronic opus “Saturday Night Experience.”
It’s all about L O V E!

At sea for a few days and made sure to take in the natural sounds of the ocean as often as I could. I even slept with my cabin door open to hear it at night while going to sleep – no need for the app when I had the authentic thing!
It was a must as well to appreciate the unspoiled sunrise and sunsets. Wherever you are it’s important to take a moment of pause. Breathe in – deep breaths out a few times a day.
Set a reminder in your phone if you need to.
Find your calm when you need it.
“A calm mind brings inner strength and a self confidence, so that’s very important for good health.” – Dalai Lama
