Behind The Scenes. New Post.

The views are up on our Facebook, interesting to see the different facets of social media and how the various platforms engage. We just posted to Youtube, check it out..after our business meeting at Rosero’s. Less than 25 seconds for the time challenged.

Planning and Preparation with Shalamar Reloaded.

Being a real group and artist means you don’t just show up to get a check, the work happens all the time if you want to make things unique, distinct.. meeting, brainstorming, exchanging ideas, listening to each other, being able to keep it real and honest..before ever taking the stage, going in studio, making a video. We don’t just get together to pick up a check, we are constantly in communication. Some want the shine without the grind – not us. We understand that building something special takes time, we’re enjoying the process despite any challenges, roadblocks and those trying to undermine our efforts.

Jody Watley. Giorgio’s Chapter 2 FashionWeekDaily

Saturday night in Hollywood, Bryan Rabin and Giorgio’s bid a chic adieu to 70’s disco and ushered in Chapter 2: The New Sound 80’s. I rolled through with Shalamar Reloaded Nate Smith, Rosero McCoy. We put in work on the dance-floor – it was packed so a bit difficult to get really loose. A great time was had by all. Bryan really knows how to do it big.

It was nice to catch up a bit with actor Alan Cumming. He and I first met back in 2005 in Malaysia for the Tsunami Relief Concert “Force of Nature”, and then had a blast in Vegas some years later when I was there performing at Vegas Pride. He told me he still has his “I Heart Jody Watley” T-shirt which made me happy!

Original. Shalamar Reloaded Pre-Order

shalamar_Reloaded_original_coverart copy

Avitone created in 1995 with the mantra of fueling quality music is another element of my career as a business woman and artist that I’m very proud of. Never waiting for anyone to give me anything or any easy opportunity – it’s always about the work, the journey and doing things with style and a level of quality to be proud of. You have to believe in yourself and if there’s no door – create one. Being an independent has it’s challenges but should never a deterrent.

Pre-Order the forthcoming new Shalamar Reloaded single at Amazon, other digital outlets are coming worldwide. We are excited to pushing forward..this single was inspired by haters..trolls..and the naysayers and shade throwers who have nothing better to do than go around trying to bring others down – as we proceed, we recommend it. Originals, us 3.
