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.
ALBUMS WE ADORE: Jody Watley’s ‘Flower’ (1998) | Revisit our retrospective tribute:
In the past, an artist would send out tons of copies of promotional discs to have their album reviewed. We have not done that. This collection is all about the love, the word of mouth, the appreciators of artistry, the fans – it’s in the music! The QHBlend is one of my favorite music blogs with Quentin Harrison always shining as a true music writer who knows his subjects objectively really examining and listening to the music and covering those elements. Quentin understands music pop culture, artistic growth and never holding commercial peaks and valleys against or for his subjects – as it should be. Read his observations about “PARADISE”: Here
Much appreciation to Dave Higdon over at Poptastic Confessions for his ongoing support of my music, as well as Quentin Harrison and theqhblend. Where some blogs focus on dishing the gossip and the latest celebrity feuds or controversies, it’s always important to show love in return when the focus is solely on “the music.” Check the “NIGHTLIFE” posts: Poptastic Confessions and The QH Blend’s “Jody Watley from Soul Train to Nightlife”: HERE
