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.

Jody Watley and SRL – Holiday Playlists 2016. It’s In The Music.

Head to iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and other digital outlets or stream on Apple, Pandora, Spotify..

The current SRL (Shalamar Reloaded) release “THE MOOD” a highlight of my musical journey in 2016.

O.R.I.G.in.A.L – Shalamar Reloaded made noise with this anthem in 2016.

 

 

“DANCER.” A song about confidence and losing yourself in the music.  This jam kicked off 2016 – now a crowd favorite live in concert..guaranteed to get any party started, or give you motivation at the gym working off holiday calories!

 

SANCTUARY. A reminder in often unpredictable world. The video and single will be out in January. The single will include the mix and edit that features my former songwriting collaborator, ex-husband; music producer and musician Andre Cymone on bass and guitar. Adding the EP ‘Paradise’ to your collections – you can’t go wrong.

Jody Watley Christmas Songs. Available at digital outlets. I recorded these last year for a various artist project for a label that was supposed to be titled ‘A Soulful Christmas’ – it seems they only released my songs..These are very traditional versions, no bells and whistles, I prefer those.  Perhaps these will light my own flame to record a Christmas album for my label Avitone.

 

This is an unreleased version of my recording of “Christmas Time Is Here.” I originally recorded this several years ago and gave free downloads as a gift to fans.

Recorded in 2002 for German electronic duo Cyber X – uptempo trance “My Love, Santa Claus.” I had fun recording this – it made me feel like a teen Japanese anime character.

Jody Watley. Sanctuary.

One of my favorites of the many songs I’ve written and recorded – and this collaboration with Soulpersona out of the UK (aka Morgan Howell). This is a timely, real and comforting song in often troubled times. As I say when performing it live..your space, your vibe – sanctuary is our home. Take those same vibes into the world..an environment of love and when you close the door..a safe place..for you, your significant others, family, children and so on.

I’ll be releasing this long version as a single – the short edit is available on my “Paradise” EP which is available at digital outlets worldwide. It’s a new era since this millennium (always surprised by those who are still waiting on the old model of the industry – it’s not coming back..)  and you don’t have to wait for commercial radio to make you aware of and/or quality  new music and video. Support independent music and artists. No rants, no controversy, no public romances to exploit ..just quality music.

I’ve been inspired to do a video for it..stay tuned!
