“..remember love lives in you – happiness and peace of mind, the essence of being – the essence of life..positive living, worth remembering..” The Essence.
I wrote the original with King Britt out of Philadelphia – lyrics and melody, he produced it and there’s an alternate GB Mix on “Midnight Lounge.”
Empowering lyrics don’t always get shine though that fact has never discouraged me from being true to myself.
Focused on posting more music for those not in the know – my catalog is vast, diverse and full of substance along with the fun. While revisiting my own work, I’m discovering new music..not sure why this isn’t the case for some..again I think people see as much as they want to see. To any artist of any form who may see this..never feel your canvas has to be the same or you must use the same colors with each creation.
The is the fabulous DJ Yellow (from France) Remix.
New video post Jody Watley & SRL “The Mood” Live In Concert. Our final concert of 2019 was in San Antonio, Texas at the Jo Long Theatre. It was a great night and I wanted to share this video. Looking forward to more memorable live concert experiences in 2020 with the guys and all of you.
“The Mood” Alex Di Cio’ Mix Top 2 UK Soul Chart, 2018 – and still in the Top 5 of my contemporary releases streaming at all digital outlets – most coming from Spotify. You can also download it from iTunes, Amazon, etc.
Make sure to subscribe to the Official Jody Watley Youtube Channel for new video releases, behind the scenes, interviews and positive Wattage inspirations for Jody Watley as well as Jody Watley & SRL fans. Each week I’m going to make it a goal to publish something new. As outlets like Facebook and Instagram rely more and more on algorithms as to what you may see in your feed, i.e. the most popular or trending subjects – it’s increasingly important to find ways to connect with my niche base.
Competing with gossip sites and artists with millions of followers is futile, as well as what these sites choosing what fans see from music, design, art, business pages etc. can be very frustrating.
As an independent I’ll continue to use my platforms as best as I can and hope those interested will discover, keep up and share. Just click ‘Subscribe’: Jody Watley Youtube
Music journalist Brian Pace caught up with Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and I at soundcheck for the “Midsummer Night Swing” Lincoln Center Damrosch Park – we were a bit weathered and frazzled just getting off train and 4 am call and straight to the venue – but you get the point in the interview, interspersed with concert footage for the event. Tourlife. Life.
