New Video Upload. Jody Watley and SRL In Amsterdam.

Jody Watley & Shalamar Reloaded (when doing the Shalamar cuts) SRL (the group new music) did the damn thing at another sold out show in Amsterdam April 20, 2019. The high energy show consisted of Jody Watley solo hits and new music, a fabulous disco section with hits from my Shalamar days – and new hit music by Jody Watley & SRL. The guys Nate Allen Smith and John ‘Havic’ Gregory joined me for the finale for a spirited dance off. After the show, it was nice to spend time with everyone.

Jody Watley. Music and Life. The Tough Decisions.

jody-watley__profile2018

Navigating life and career.  Ended 2018 having to make a difficult business decision after a year of contemplation and coming to terms with hard realizations. There are times in life personally and professionally in order to continue to grow, it’s necessary to make changes, and allow others to do the same.  In the tough decisions especially for entrepreneurs or those with whom you’ve had a close relationship and the lines may have been blurred it’s even harder it will be taken personally when it’s not. Business is business and it’s wise to always keep that in mind.

Often the only person who can see a vision is you, it’s not a cold hearted thing, it’s the ongoing evolution of being and willingness to step out of comfort zones- not everyone is going to be on that same page or path. Never one to shy away from my instincts is something to never fear or avoid – no matter how difficult. Stay stagnant, rigid and stuck – or keep pushing for new levels. You never know until you try and do is also one of my life mantras.

Being able to be close to home to be there and present for my ailing Mom continues to be a priority in the midst of the music, just as it was when I was raising my daughter and son. I’ve cut back on some travel and concerts such as putting off shows in Glasgow and Manchester to make sure I’m never too far away. The process continues to push me into an even more reflective mode about life in general. One of the things my Mom has said when talking to one of her doctors on a bad day and through pain that really resonates “..no matter what, I’m happy to still be here..fighting..” – words to live by.

If you see that I’m coming to your city – don’t miss it. As an artist never been one to do a ton of dates to begin with it’s always a quality over quantity always – that keeps it fun. 2019 will include select dates, some of the schedule has had to be revised, always an experience of good vibes, memories, creating new ones and inspiration.

Stay tuned for info on upcoming new music projects as well!
