Jody Watley. The Mood.

Each of us – Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and I “SRL” did short teasers for the forthcoming “The Mood” video which will drop on September 26, 2016. “The Mood” is from the forthcoming “Bridges” full length.

It’s also been cool to see a few fans offer their take with clips on Instagram and Youtube, such as Shawn West.

Thought Of The Day. Make Room.

SRL. Nate, Jody, Rosero.

On my song ‘Clouds’ from ‘Midnight  Lounge’ I wrote “Are you listening to your life..are you listening to the changes..are you trying to make a difference – are you listening to your experience..”

Make room for  what you truly want or need. The past holds our lessons, the present is a gift, the future is the motivation. Lessons all along the way – stay open. Be the architect of your own life. Live it -don’t just go through it. Enjoy it for all it brings.
