Jody Watley. The Howard Theatre 2020. Photo Essay Recap

Jody Watley: A Journey Into Sound rolled into Washington D.C.’s historic The Howard Theatre on Saturday February 8, 2020. The show begins with disco funk and soul, where I’m joined by SRL on a few of my Shalamar hits before we move on to our own releases (The Mood & The Passion) seamlessly transitioning the over 90 minute show into house, R&B, bossa nova jazz, a paired down funky rendition of “Friends”, a piano and vocal only “Everything” along hits from the 80’s, 90’s, Skin Deep from the just released ‘Winter Nights’ EP along with a the underground critically acclaimed aptly  titled 2000 electronic opus “Saturday Night Experience.”

Jody Watley Reloads SHALAMAR A Must Read on Eurweb

The interview begins with a revelation by the writer, Gerald Radford, which threw me upon reading. His personal bias was something I always suspected with some in the “urban” media which goes back to earlier in my solo career and having mega crossover success – not everyone embraced that. The negative cloud he speaks of is odd because overall I receive so much love in the press and of course from fans in a career spanning decades and with all of the acheivments and benchmarks thus far. A negative cloud hanging over me? I don’t see it. From my point of view only those who resent me for being who I am…and my early solo crossover success, not towing the line, not staying ‘in my place’.. as women as supposed to do in the minds of some is where that exists. I appreciate very much that Gerald remained open and this article was able to be so honest on both of our parts -we had a wonderful conversation. As always, I’m just being myself – living, laughing, loving, learning and hoping it’s contagious to others. There are many things I refrain from saying because I don’t like drama, however sometimes one must let people know what’s really going on.

I consider myself quite blessed to have not only achieved my childhood dreams, but exceeded them. Constantly creating new goals – growing, learning, evolving. Some people don’t like that – the independents, those who don’t fall in line with the status quo..especially women..read the interview: Here
