Jody Watley. Winter Nights and Spring.

Jody Watley Winter Nights Cover Art Final

When releasing ‘Winter Nights’ in February my goal was to release a series of seasonal EP’s – with ‘Spring’ on the horizon. Now with the self quarantine my plans will have to adjust to the circumstances of not being able to get into the studio for the full recordings.

“Winter Nights” is as Albumism said “Jody Watley has delivered another dose of sophisticated soul..” is available at all platforms (Apple, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc).

The limited edition digi-paks had come in and I was excited to make them available at my concerts in the Jody Watley pop-up tables – that will have to wait. Online is hold hold as well as shipping wouldn’t be an essential outing under this self quarantine for the merchandise team.

Ironically, I’d just finished a song called ‘The Healing.’  The song is perfect for where we’ve all found ourselves. Contemplating if putting ‘Spring’ on hold would be the way to go, the feeling is that the message is one that some may find inspirational in some way, especially now. With that ‘The Healing’ will precede the EP – it’s timely and necessary with a thumping remix from RedTop. Stay tuned.

Thanks to all of the UK and European Soul Radio Stations spinning songs from “Winter Nights’ EP! To those in America who are wondering – this project nor any recent ones have been serviced to American radio — no pay for play, I don’t do rap and I a woman over 35.. so it would be a waste of resources. The music is here for all to support by use of social media and digital outlets. It’s a choice not to invest in a PR campaign here in USA why? Unlike many moons ago and the old model that most commercial minded fans think still exist where shows would have you on just to talk about your latest music project  – that model went out in the late 90’s. I began my indie label Avitone in the 90’s one of the first women, former major label artists to do so – no headlines.

Most high profile TV shows now despite hit records and a vast list of accolades to get booked they want gossip and sensationalism. I don’t wish to discuss my private life, there’s no have a health issue or high profile romance to publicize, have not been to rehab..have not had a baby lately (smile) and so on. I’m just here for the music and appreciate those who are here for it too! The world exists far beyond this American bubble – and it’s an incredible feat to still be charting records anywhere – not many veteran artists especially black female artists can say that – on top of that to be self released on my own label. Thanks to a great small team who continue to work with so much passion on my behalf. Some will of course try to dismiss this latest milestone –  keep doubting as I continue to proceed and succeed on my own terms.
