Jody Watley. Everlasting.

“Don’t let the worst of life, get the best of you..stay everlasting..sometimes you win, sometimes you lose..gotta stay up – stay everlasting.” I just posted this on my Soundcloud page. Beautiful for a reflective Sunday or any day. ‘Everlasting” was on the CD version of “Paradise.” My company Avitone may have to make this commercially available for digital release. Good vibes, uplifting song.

I have to thank the tons of fans on Twitter and Facebook who have posted so many positive and encouraging words in support and ultimate understanding of my blog post “To Those It May Concern.” There were also quite a few priceless .gifs and memes on Twitter. I wanted to share them all.

Paradise Returns.

Paradise_JodyWatley_CoverArt

The critically acclaimed 2014 “Paradise” EP has returned to digital outlets worldwide. The physical CD quickly sold out via the Jody Watley Boutique.  Get this modern disco soul ambient electronica gem. “Paradise” features the Top 5 UK Commercial Pop Single “Nightlife” which also appeared in the Billboard Dance Top 20. If you rated or left a review, make sure to do so again because all of the data went when my label Avitone took it down by choice. “Paradise” also includes what has become a favorite live in concert life and celebration of home and an environment of love, “Sanctuary” produced by Soulpersona out of the UK as well as the original of the hot dance single and popular viral video “Dancer” another in concert fan favorite.

Illuminations. Candles. Jody Watley Boutique Update

 

JODYWATLEY_PARADISE_CANDLE_SET

The PARADISE candles are back in stock. PARADISE is spa like for relaxation with citrus and vanilla undernotes but not too sweet. SANCTUARY is exotic, sensual and warm. It’s wonderful to know that everyone who has purchased them is enjoying the candles, has a favorite and re-ordering.Candles add so much atmosphere to any apartment, home, living space. Comfort, healing, illumination, atmosphere and the symbol of hope and love to me. I don’t go a day without burning candles – I wake up praying and meditating after lighting candles. My children’s friends when would always call our house ‘calming.’ Candles were always burning on the most raucous playdates. I travel with candles when I leave home to do concerts, and also burn them in my dressing room. You get the point.

I’d like to expand and add a ‘Nightlife’ candle to the collection. We are low on stock on quite a few of the T-shirts and once they’re gone, that’s it so don’t miss out on these limited edition items. Thinking of doing another run of the limited edition PARADISE EP – with a new twist – perhaps exclusive DANCER remixes, revised art… Stay tuned.

We’re working on new merchandise for spring. Shop Now: Here

Paradise Makes The Hot 16 on Soulbounce

JodyWatley_Paradise_EP_CD_CoverArt

 

What a delight it was to find out PARADISE made the Hot 16 List on Soulbounce amongst an eclectic list of young and emerging talent – that is quite fabulous for a vet like me. To remain fresh and true to myself always keeps my soul rooted in my work. I always hope my efforts and collaborations resonate with audiences large, small and diverse as well as the young without pandering and the young and heart. It’s in the music!
