Jody Watley Art by Shawn West.

Jody Watley, multi-platinum singer/songwriter/producer/independent label owner and style icon is one of the architects of 21st century Pop/R&B/Dance music.

From her groundbreaking marriage of rap & R&B (1987’s “Friends,” a collaboration with hip-hop legends Eric B. & Rakim) to her vision-forward marriage of high fashion, street fashion and music in the ‘80s (long before it became the norm), to her fusion of jazz and underground club culture with keen pop instincts, and the ease with which she crossed and still crosses genre, Watley forged the template that is now everybody’s playbook.

Listed as one of Billboard Magazine’s Top Female Artists and Top Dance Artists of All Time in 2018; Winner of the Best New Artist Grammy in 1987, Jody Watley’s entire career has been about looking forward, drawing inspiration from personal heroes and iconoclasts always ten steps ahead of the pack since her days as the original female lead and sound of the group Shalamar. The Chicago native’s eclectic repertoire – R&B, hip-hop, House, jazz, pop, drum & bass, ambient, spoken-word – is built on a positive vision and a strong taste for artistic and aesthetic risk. The Jody Watley concert experience is an energetic thoughtful music journey in any format from the full comprehensive concert, pop freestyle, 80’s, 90’s, intimate jazz, love and soul, to her Shalamar disco funk days to the new UK hits with SRL..there’s something for everyone depending on the configuration and event.”

SHALAMAR RELOADED feat. JODY WATLEY | 20 APRIL 2019 | MELKWEG AMSTERDAM

JODY WATLEY stond in 2015 in een uitverkochte Melkweg met haar groep Shalamar Reloaded. Op 20 april 2019 mogen we ze weer verwelkomen! Dat belooft weer 1 groot feest te worden 🙂

Shalamar, de in de jaren ‘80 succesvolle Amerikaanse disco-, soul- en funkgroep, ontstond in eerste instantie uit twee achtergronddansers van het Amerikaanse soul-TV-programma “Soultrain”.

Ze behaalden enorme successen met onder andere de hits ‘Second Time Around’, ‘Night To Remember’ en ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’.

Jody Watley, leadzangeres en uber fashionista, heeft na het verlaten van de groep ook als solo artiest bewezen een enorm hitkanon te zijn – denk maar aan de nummers ‘Looking For A New Love’ en de kraker ‘Friends’.

Samen met haar groep SRL heeft zij onlangs nog een album uitgebracht en timmeren ze nog stevig aan de weg. In 2016 is Jody door Billboard uitgeroepen tot 1 van de meest succesvolle en invloedrijke dance-artiesten of all time!

Bereid je voor op een onvergetelijke soulvolle en funky dansavond, met de oude – en ook de nieuwe hits!

Jody Watley and SRL. Looking Back to O.R.I.G.IN.A.L

Originally released May 7, 2016 O.R.I.G.IN.A.L got a lot of attention .. Many were pressed when we formed in 2015 and the attacks began. Our old page was constantly trolled up. Jody’s was blowing up with haters, online bullies and naysayers on how this thing wouldn’t work, and this and that, so we had to address it, have some fun with it and be bold about who WE are. We are Originals to this group and Jody Watley of course is an original in her trends. Writing a song and video about it all, complete with the anonymous trolls in it and each of us with our own verse.. We shook things up with this pared down trap soul sound and moved on, enduring the hate in the process, it made us stronger. We changed our name, focused on our new direction, more new music, just having fun with this. We inspired some folks we could see it and laugh about it. The same ones who hate are the ones to copy, mimic, or whatever, while we just focused building our own thing being creative, it’s all good.
2016? It seems like a lifetime ago already.
2018 started off with a hit single “The Mood” Alex Di Cio Remix (UK, Netherlands, Canada), lesson is to just keep believing and doing us, sold out shows traveling the U.S. and overseas making our own name slowly but surely, that’s what’s dope. A passion for living and life and building something new.

Our message is to keep doing your thing, no matter what people have to say..and make them watch you walk out with confidence!

Jody Watley and SRL Return To Cache Creek

Jody Watley and SRL (also known as Shalamar Reloaded ®️) return to Cache Creek Casino July 21, 2018.

This will definitely be an all hits show featuring Jody Watley hits as well as some of the Shalamar hits I originated by special request of the venue Club 88 and of course a few new gems as well.

The group settled upon our new name Jody Watley and SRL over a year ago with a focus on new music, but we know our other brand “Shalamar Reloaded” resonated with a lot of fans and talent buyers on the live end of things and so we honor our commitments under that brand as well.

So….

Get ready – it will be a night to remember!

Purchase your tickets early – this will sell out.

Happy Birthday Nate Allen Smith from SRL.

Great guy and entertainer!
