Good Vibes All The Time.

 

Jody Watley Sanctuary Fuchsia 4 Final

One the great things about this era is when you want to watch a video, you don’t have to wait for it to appear on a network, or if you want to hear a song, you can just stream it (Spotify, Aple Music, etc)  or even better download it from one of the online outlets (iTunes, Amazon) – though streaming is outpacing paid downloads as the way fans get music. Times change and I continue to change too! The music is there within reach all the time.

Sanctuary, quality soul music with meaning…the kind people who don’t really support new music to begin with say is not being made – it’s here, just like I am!

These were the limited edition candles we did last year.

New Video Alert. Jody Watley ‘Sanctuary’ Part 1

Inspired by my children, life and peace of mind in a crazy world – and hopefully a reminder to cherish the home environments we create and what we take into the world as well as those around us. These are snapshots small glimpses into my life away from music. When my son was born, I did stop traveling as much and really chose to stay vibrant creatively with various projects, and selective dates and of course probably sacrificing what others may feel as a need to always be in the spotlight. That’s never been my driving force. Looking back, and now that both my daughter Lauren and my son Arie are young adults – I don’t regret at all being present in their lives, being carpool Mom, sports Mom, etc. Time is always moving and you can’t get it back so choose wisely. I’m happy of the choices I’ve made placing my priorities on being there. It’s a blessing to be a songwriter and to have the luxury to make that choice..not all artists or parents do. We’re all doing the best we can..however in pursuing career, job and work goals never forget to create a life – an atmosphere of love, joy, fun, laughter and so forth. Those moments carry you through the more challenging times.

Visuals by Ray Easmon. Part 2 will arrive soon, with more of a performance vibe..this song is very special to me and I feel very important at this time in the world. We can’t control the politicians, and uncertainty that looms..however we can control how we live day to day in our own lives and we energy we give off to those around us.

“Sanctuary” EP available now at all digital outlets such as iTunes. To those who complain that good music isn’t being made anymore – I disagree. It may not make headlines, fuel the gossip blogs or top the charts – but it is here and I’m proud to continue to write and record it. It’s in the music!

Jody Watley -Spring Inspirations. Sanctuary Updated Cover Art and Release Date.

Jody Watley Sanctuary Fuchsia 4 Final

Jody Watley “Sanctuary” written by Jody Watley and Rodney Lee. Cover and Graphic Design: Ray Easmon. Photography: Albert Sanchez

 

Dream. Believe. Do. Repeat..and don’t over think. Make it happen for yourself in life – live it! Create your environment of love.

The fabulous Ray Easmon from the United Kingdom was inspired by the blooms of Cherry Blossoms while he’s been in Asia. I mentioned it would be nice to add an infusion of color to the art and when he sent the updated ideas, this one won me over right away. It’s so beautiful, we may do a limited quantity of 7″ vinyl for collectors..stay tuned. As well, as soon as the Pre-order link is viewable in iTunes / Apple Music. it will be posted as well.

“Sanctuary” EP is now scheduled for an  April 10 release and will include the original single version which has live bass and guitar as well the extended SoulPersona Raregrooves 12″ Remix and the accompanying instrumental.

The release is even more timely with all of the chaos and stress as a result of election results especially in America. The song serves as a reminder when life feels out of balance, overwhelming, one of the things we can control is our home environments.
