Jody Watley feat. Shalamar Reloaded
"Jody Watley is serving notice she isn’t resting on her past glories and proved she is still a talented force to be reckoned with." Harriet Kaplan SoCalMusicToday Concert Review, 2016

Grammy Award Winning Pop/R&B/Dance and Style Icon Jody Watley has the distinction of being named “one of the most prominent visionaries of her era” by Wax Poetics magazine. With millions of albums sold, 13 #1 singles including classics "Don't You Want Me", "Looking for a New Love" with it's signature pop culture phrase "Hasta la Vista Baby" and "Friends" with Eric B & Rakim the groundbreaking single that first catapulted the rap/sung verses into the mainstream). Watley's music crosses genres from Pop, R&B, HipHop, Dance/Electronica as well as recent collaborations with modern boogie ambassador Dam-Funk, nu jack duo French Horn Rebellion, venerable jazz and dance musician remixer Mark de- Clive Lowe and folk artist Peter Harper - Jody Watley continues to evolve artistically. Add groundbreaking ad campaigns, and fashion layouts and you'll understand why Watley remains a venerable force creating the template for other female artists in music today.

It’s also her modus operandi with Shalamar Reloaded "SRL" her new vocal dance trio for the new millennium. "Our sound is smooth with an edge.. and I bring my unmistakable sound" states Watley. "Our stage show has fresh choreography and state-of-the-art musical beds composed of innovative beats and forward grooves. We are originals - a new group for a new generation. " Adds Rosero McCoy. "This is not a throw back group, Jody is not a throw back nostalgia artist. This is an experience where classic meets new and it holds up to any contemporary show touring today."

Joining Watley for Shalamar Reloaded are Oakland born and raised singer/performer/choreographer Rosero McCoy (KekePalmer, Usher, Beyoncé, America’s Next Best Dance Crew, Shake it Up, The Sing Off) and breakout new male lead talent Nate Allen Smith a native of Ohio. With critically acclaimed singles and video (SlowDance, O.R.I.G.IN.A.L.) including the hot new single "The Mood" under their belt; television appearances, a special on SIRIUSXM, rave concert reviews and sold out shows; Jody Watley and SRL are set to release their debut album "Bridges" in early 2017.
