Celebrating Three Years : Jody Watley and SRL.

We’ve fine tuned things in the last three years, and withstood a certain amount of naysayers and vitriol since 2015. A few people said we wouldn’t last a year..just like some saying I’d never succeed as a solo artist – and here I am 30 years later succeeding and excelling at being myself – always true to what I believe in. That’s what I say to people all the time. Don’t worry what others think or how they may judge your path – do you and keep going.

A repost from my Facebook page:

Some doors close for a reason and should remain that way – others you have to kick and push through. Pay attention and learn the difference.

The Mood, Alex Di Cio Remix continues to gain ground in the United Kingdom, needles to say this is unexpected and very exciting. We’ve been focused on finishing “Bridges” as a group and of course I always have solo endeavors going, running a business and what not. Thanks really goes to Alex for starting the ball rolling with his spins toward the end of 2017 showing unwavering support of us.

Here are a few terrific podcasts of broadcasts – both playlists include classics and 21st century music.

Update: “The Mood” will be featured on Jeff Young’s show on Jazz FM Sunday morning – the biggest soul show on UK radio.
