Listen Now or At Your Leisure: MiSoulRadio Mike Vitti

Welcome Autumn 2018

As we say good-bye to summer and welcome autumn I want to thank everyone who came out to see me and SRL during the Spring/Summer seasons.

Both seasons were great for the music with “Waiting In Vain” making it into the Top 10 Smooth Jazz in America and Jody Watley & SRL having two back to back Soul Chart hits with “The Mood” and “The Passion” Alex Di Cio mixes and now heading into autumn the Brian Power Remix has really kicked things into another gear in the U.K. Today alone we received play on 8 BBC stations – 8! Heavy play is coming from Mi-Soul kicking off today with Part 1 of my interview with the one and only Mike Vitti-Part 1 because our scheduled 10 minute chat turned into an hour. I joked that I was a regular “Chatty Cathy” that day. I’ll post the archive link as soon as available.

To one and to all : Stay in your magic, that’s what I’m always trying to do so on the good and not so good days (we all have them).. don’t let life and the world get you down.

Believe in miracles and the magic within and take that into the world with love in actions – we need it now more than ever.

The Passion.

Jody Watley To Perform at Taste of Soul Los Angeles.

Jody Watley, singer/songwriter/producer/businesswoman, is one of the architects of 21st century pop. From her groundbreaking marriage of rap & R&B (1989’s “Friends,” a collaboration with hip-hop legends Eric B. & Rakim) to her vision-forward marriage of high fashion, street fashion and music in the ‘80s (long before it became the norm), to her fusion of jazz and underground club culture with keen pop instincts, and the ease with which she crossed and still crosses genre, Watley forged the template that is now everybody’s playbook.

In 2018 Watley was listed by Billboard Magazine as one of the Top Female Artists of All Time as well as Top Dance Artists of All Time. Winner of the Best New Artist Grammy in 1987, Jody Watley’s entire career has been about looking forward, drawing inspiration from personal heroes and iconoclasts always ten steps ahead of the pack. The Chicago native’s eclectic repertoire – R&B, hip-hop, House, jazz, pop, drum & bass, ambient, spoken-word – is built on a positive vision and a strong taste for artistic and aesthetic risk.

Watley will take the stage for Taste of Soul for a hit packed set that will also include her much buzzed about new group SRL with Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy on the 94.7 The Wave Stage.

Dubbed Los Angeles’ largest street festival, The Taste of Soul Family Festival takes features a taste of all things “soulful” including food from local restaurants, live entertainment, displays from local artists, and exhibits from local businesses and organizations.

Monday Motivation. Your Light.

With so many “isms” – my thoughts are simply no matter what never let anyone make you dim your own light. May it resonate from the inside out and endure.

Wattage!

Inspiration of The Day. Gratitude.

Every day is not perfect and inevitably brings its challenges and joys.

That said, it’s a gift to begin anew to make the day better, to achieve and set new goals or to bring something good into the world – never taking a day for granted.
