SRL. Created by Grammy winning music veteran and style icon Jody Watley in 2015 includes Ohio native, male lead vocalist Nate Allen Smith and renowned choreographer Rosero McCoy (Keke Palmer, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Toni Braxton, America’s Best Dance Crew, Disney’s Shake It Up).
In a short timespan, SRL have taken their dynamic concert experience to sold out concerts around the United States (Los Angeles, Oakland, New York, Honolulu, Washington D.C., Atlantic City) to rave reviews. Internationally SRL have made their mark in Japan, United Kingdom for mega festivals (Let’s Rock London, Happy Days) and Amsterdam.
Television appearances include (WGN Morning News Chicago, KTLA Morning News
Los Angeles with Sam Rubin, MY Fox5 DC Morning Show, Good Day Washington). Jody Watley LIVE in Concert was broadcast across Asia on Fuji NextTV, as well as two one-hour specials on SIRIUSXM’s The Groove with BK Kirkland and countless features across the web.
As an artistic statement, it’s a perfect encapsulation of Watley’s career thus far as she says “This is where I’ve been / this is what I’ve done – this is where I am and what I’m doing right now. This is how I’m mapping the future, I’ve sold millions of records, have influenced a new generation of women in music, not to mention many trendsetting solo benchmarks, from the UK’s Band Aid, an award winning songwriter with BMI; it’s not about resting on laurels though. SRL are now a part of my moving forward for exciting new adventures, as well as continued solo efforts including a planned memoir.”
With three much talked about singles and videos under their belt (the soulful ballad ‘Slowdance’, the edgy and bold O.R.I.G.IN.A.L and the feel good jam “The Mood’) SRL continue paving a new path.
“That’s a part of what our forthcoming “Bridges” album is about; building pathways for those what want to be on it and new connections. Inspired by the past because we’ve all learned from it – but wanting to build something new and better for today moving toward the future. Bringing people together in the world through music, all ages and ethnicities. A universal squad so to speak. It’s great to have this type of group experience and I’m happy the universe brought this to me…we want to be together and work well as a team.”
SRL’s full length release “Bridges” is expected in 2017 while they continue to raise the roof, cover new ground and get fans and concertgoers around the world in the mood with one of the most dynamic and unique concert experiences touring today.
