Planning and Preparation with Shalamar Reloaded.

Being a real group and artist means you don’t just show up to get a check, the work happens all the time if you want to make things unique, distinct.. meeting, brainstorming, exchanging ideas, listening to each other, being able to keep it real and honest..before ever taking the stage, going in studio, making a video. We don’t just get together to pick up a check, we are constantly in communication. Some want the shine without the grind – not us. We understand that building something special takes time, we’re enjoying the process despite any challenges, roadblocks and those trying to undermine our efforts.

Avitone created in 1995 with the mantra of fueling quality music is another element of my career as a business woman and artist that I’m very proud of. Never waiting for anyone to give me anything or any easy opportunity – it’s always about the work, the journey and doing things with style and a level of quality to be proud of. You have to believe in yourself and if there’s no door – create one. Being an independent has it’s challenges but should never a deterrent.

Pre-Order the forthcoming new Shalamar Reloaded single at Amazon, other digital outlets are coming worldwide. We are excited to pushing forward..this single was inspired by haters..trolls..and the naysayers and shade throwers who have nothing better to do than go around trying to bring others down – as we proceed, we recommend it. Originals, us 3.

Scenes from Honda Center, Anaheim – great night..I loved dancing with all of the kids and dancers which was new for me. Rosero McCoy did an outstanding job putting it together. The girls all rocked classic Jody Watley jumbo hoops with style as a nod to my early solo career and the Real Love video.

New Exclusive Remix of SlowDance. Shalamar® Reloaded.

I could have taken an obvious approach to release a dance single for the new Shalamar® – however it’s not in my nature to play it safe. Despite soul music being less than commercial  – authentically it felt important to take the path less traveled..as always. I’d sent the track to Ty to mix and he dug it so much – he wanted to put his spin on it.

Shalamar “SlowDance” given a new twist courtesy of Ty Macklin who has worked with India Arie, Erykah Badu to name two awesome talents.
