Albumism- Celebrating 20 Years of Jody Watley – Flower.

I still have so many thoughts on this experience, the disappointment, disillusionment I felt that lingered a couple of years while in limbo and reevaluating if my passion for the music and navigation of the business of it was over.. eventually the underground music scene in particular 4Hero’s Two Pages was a new awakening and inspiration for me as an artist, writer, producer and independent label owner. We grow through our disappointments, adversity, pain, heartbreak– it’s life.

Quentin Harrison is an excellent music writer, rare in the era we live. He does a great job on this retrospective and subsequent music aftermath.

It was nice to be reminded of this one..timely song in these often troubled times. One of my favorite collaborations was with the UK’s 4 Hero. This also appears on my critically acclaimed full length “The Makeover” from 2008.
