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 🕯 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! “you 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!

Jody Watley – Waiting In Vain One Year Anniversary

This music gem the contemporary jazz of “Waiting In Vain” was birthed on February 15, 2018. An eventual Top 10 Smooth Jazz Network entry, and Top 25 Billboard Smooth Jazz.

The format is one that in America still embraces soul music though primarily instrumental.

For me the ability and desire to continue to create different musical moments is very rewarding.

Of upcoming concerts the Blue Note Napa “An Evening Of Love, Jazz and Soul” with further highlight that artistic freedom.

Anyone stuck on my 80’s output is definitely missing out on the quality and diverse range that continues since that time.

Monday Wattage. Make Each Day Special.

A casual day at home, doing a bit of work over the weekend. Though not going out, I perked myself up with just a touch of glam. As my Dad used to say you don’t need to wait for a special occasion to dress up, enjoy your nice things, a special meal or to be charitable, giving and kind.

Wise words – each day of life is special!
