This was a fantastic way to end 2016 for Shalamar Reloaded and I, at #1 atop the 2016 Year End List on Dave Higdon’s Poptastic Confessions Music Blog with “The Mood.” Check out the full list: Here

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.

In case you’ve missed posts – out now is the new single and video “The Mood” from my new group SRL – Shalamar Reloaded featuring Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy. We formed in 2015 and have performed countless sold-out concerts in the USA to rave reviews, Japan (Tokyo and Osaka), Brazil, London (Let’s Rock London, Happy Day Music Festival), Netherlands (Amsterdam’s Melkweg). We just did 2 TV shows in Washington DC as a group (WUSA9 and Roland Martin NewsOneNow), I did 2 solo TV appearances (Fox5DC and ABC7 Good Day Washington). There are numerous blog reviews and interviews like this one on ABCNews RadioOnline, and our second special aired on SIRIUSXM ‘The Groove’ with BK Kirkland October 29. Get in The Mood – iTunes

My most recent solo release is the critically acclaimed “Paradise” as well as ‘Dancer’ Remixes available at digital outlets worldwide. I’d still like to do a video for ‘Sanctuary’ and or ‘The Dawn.’ In this era there really are no rules with regard to releasing music and how long a project lives in the social realm. Youtube is the place for video releases no more waiting for networks to play it. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel: Here I’m still amazed at how behind the times some fans remain in how they discover and keep up with artists they like – speaking of veteran artists like me primarily. We live in an information age..but some don’t use tools of reading and research no matter the topic to keep up or simply get informed.

After performing with Tokyo Philharmonic Symphony I’m inspired to make my next solo release symphonic. It will take time and I’ll probably do a crowd-funding for it due to the nature of recording a project like that. Stay tuned. As well, check out my recent collaborations with Dam-Funk from his ‘Invite The Light’ collection (Virtuous Progression) and French Horn Rebellion (Dancing Out, Cold Enough)..and I’ll keep you posted on my recent recorded duet ‘A Million Miles” with folk artist and sculptor Peter Harper (brother of Ben Harper).

It was a Washington D.C, takeover! Television, Concerts, Radio and New Single Release. #SRL #JodyWatley

 

It was early and we were performing this for the first time..after nearly missing the show being stuck in traffic. All in all – a good time was had by everyone! I’m thrilled at the reception and enthusiasm for me as a veteran solo artist and to parlay that goodwill to this new group is very fulfilling. The Mood – is great!
