Happy First Day Of Spring 2019

Let’s all continue to bloom and blossom into our best selves!

“Plant a seed, watch it grow. The power of experience is that you learn and hopefully grow. There’s growing in knowing.” – Jody Watley “Flower” 1998

Still true! Life is change just like seasons.

Soundcheck vibes “The Passion” in Philly last Saturday – Make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel so you don’t miss uploads!

 

Over on Instagram, really loved the comments in this post..hearing what Jody Watley Music was on playlists..originated by a fan who shared what he was listening to from 4 of of my albums. If you stopped at the first two and most commercial albums..you really are missing a lot of great music. Mix it up. Though streaming sucks for artists – I still recommend them for listening and checking out music you may have missed..and then go buy (download) to your collections. Read some of the comments to check out the diverse range..I love it when the deep cuts are mentioned..that’s a real music appreciator for any artist to go beyond the radio.

Monday Wattage. A Thousand Candles.

It’s ok to wish other people well. Should paths move in different directions to grow, get better, not be stagnant or simply evolve in new directions – it takes nothing away from any experiences and opportunities life gives us – trying to diminish others is pointless πŸ•― we all have our own journeys and lives to live and wishing others well is good for the spirit

Jody Watley Thursday Classic. A Chat With Dick Clark on Iconic TV Show American Bandstand.

Music. Fashion. Everything.

In 1987 after performing one of my hits from solo debut.. I think it was my second time from that album, chatting with Dick Clark on his American Bandstand. Music – Fashion – Jody Watley Style. I remember vividly Patti Labelle telling me at an American Music Awards “..a lot of people don’e get your style, but I do – It’s magazine baby, Magazine!”

Always be yourself whether people get you or not, has always been my thing.

 

Blessed to still be here – still a thrill being myself and doing what I love

 

Jody Watley. Happy Music Anniversary 32 to My Solo Debut.

Happy Music Anniversary to my solo debut “Jody Watley” released on February 23, 1987! β€œyou know it’s funny.. funny how times flies..as I watch days turn into years..” and decades – still me..keeping it new! Thanks to those who still rock and roll with me and my music in all of it’s continued incarnations beyond my debut into the NOW!

Eternal thanks to all involved who helped me execute my vision and exceed all expectations.

It’s not years of life of music – it’s the life in living life and good music which has no expiration date and continues to be discovered and appreciated.

Wattage!
