Jody Watley New Mi-Soul Radio Interview With Mike Vitti

JodyWatley_MikeVitti_London

New interview with Mike Vitti aired yesterday on popular UK station Mi-Soul Radio. You can listen now on the just posted new link. We had a great chat while I was in London for my April concert there at Under The Bridge – we touched upon the new music, a few thoughts on my Shalamar days and went back as far as Soul Train – I shared a fun bit of my history with The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. A must listen:

Jody Watley. London – A Long Time Coming.

Though I’ve performed in London a hand full of times over the past 32 years of my solo career – it’s an understatement to say it was a long time coming to finally bring my comprehensive concert experience to the U.K.  The venue ‘Under The Bridge’ was ambient, chic and state of the art – the perfect setting for this personally monumental occasion. Kudos to AGMP Concerts for the choice.

The music journey into sound was full of Jody Watley solo hits, a couple of Shalamar classics joined by Nate Allen Smith of SRL,, an acoustic tribute to George Michael and 4Hero ( performing our collaboration ‘Bed of Roses’), some house music from my repertoire as well as the recent two Top 5 UK Soul Chart hits ‘The Mood’ and ‘The Passion’ – capped off with my new single with DJ/Producer Brian Power ‘Good Good Reason.’ The visual wall was everything  and a special thank you to Ray Easmon for the epic designs.

To anyone who didn’t make it – a great time was missed and because I’m rarely there..it meant even more for those who turned out, showed me love from start to finish – not to mention the lovely Wattage crew I met in the meet and greet – thank you!

Thank you to my squad, SRL, band (including a few brilliant UK based musicians)  – Steve Ripley at Soulfood Music for the key radio promotions as well.

 

With Ronnie Herel Mi-Soul Radio – probing interview (he was curious about Shalamar) and lots of music from my catalog, included the new single with Brian Power “Good Hood Reason”

Fun interview.. I streamed the full video live on Facebook. Great song selection. The U.K. radio DJ’s know their music beyond the obvious hit singles – I love that.
