My dance club history spans decades and various styles and so this is really special to me especially amongst this varied list compiled by Billboard Magazine.

Jody Watley. Sanctuary.

One of my favorites of the many songs I’ve written and recorded – and this collaboration with Soulpersona out of the UK (aka Morgan Howell). This is a timely, real and comforting song in often troubled times. As I say when performing it live..your space, your vibe – sanctuary is our home. Take those same vibes into the world..an environment of love and when you close the door..a safe place..for you, your significant others, family, children and so on.

I’ll be releasing this long version as a single – the short edit is available on my “Paradise” EP which is available at digital outlets worldwide. It’s a new era since this millennium (always surprised by those who are still waiting on the old model of the industry – it’s not coming back..)  and you don’t have to wait for commercial radio to make you aware of and/or quality  new music and video. Support independent music and artists. No rants, no controversy, no public romances to exploit ..just quality music.

I’ve been inspired to do a video for it..stay tuned!
