Touch (feat. Jacarri) Lyric Video [Explicit]

Lyrics for the song are here!

This was quite a process to arrange. Very weird feeling to have someone writing all over your body. Praise the higher powers that a sharpie wasn’t accidentally switched out for the special skin ink style pen that was used. This took about 4 hours or more to complete the filming of. Having to pick out body parts to write on and then making sure the naked bits that seem to offend so many Americans weren’t in the frame during shooting. Whew. What a process.

Best Laid Plans

Sometimes the best laid plans don’t go as envisioned. I was hoping that the label and the distributor would get both versions of Touch released in due time that all services would have it on launch day. Maybe that’s only reserved for the big boys and girls like Taylor Swift or Imagine Dragons. We all start somewhere right?

What am I referencing? Spotify.

Spotify Plan

Yes, I’m an advocate for Spotify, and other streaming services that are on the up and up for paying artists. Today marks the day that Spotify got one of the versions of Touch on their site. A week late from the actual release. Apparently they windowed themselves with their own plan. So far it’s only the explicit version that has reached the Spotify service. Better late than never. Though now I wonder if Spotify’s plan to wait another week to release the ‘clean’ version of Touch. Who knows?

If you’re a Spotify user I apologize for the delay, it was out of my hands. Hopefully you’ll be into sending the song out to all your friends and Spotify network.

My next step is working on getting into Rhapsody’s hands. I’m very interested in the new plan they’ve got going with Twitter. Instant audio cards that can be shared on Twitter without the need for a Rhapsody account, and somehow we artists still get paid. Someone finally cracked the nut on making music a more sociable sharing event via Twitter. Makes me wonder if Spotify will follow suit.

Time will tell.

Enjoy Touch on Spotify!

Touch Is Here

Touch-Jody-WhitesidesMaking good on the threat of a new look to the website, Touch is here. As of 12:01 this a.m. I’ve spotted Touch being available on iTunes and Amazon. I’m told Spotify, and other sites should be live with it today. As should the video be on VEVO / YouTube sometime later today.

Touch Is Here

As soon as I find out the link for Spotify & VEVO, I’ll be linking more places of where Touch is on the Touch page. There will be updates occurring throughout the day and the next day or so as all the links become available to me. Kinda weird launching a song on a specific day and then still having to wait to see it go live like everyone else.

My desire is when the next single launches, they all are able to coordinate their times. We can all wish right?

Another launch today is episode one of Inside The Recording Studio also launches today. Meaning, you can now start the journey of how Touch got recorded, piece by piece.

p.s. – stay tuned because in the not too distant future I’ll be announcing how you could win something extremely cool via a geocache hunt.

New Look Coming

jody-whitesides-easter-eggThere’s a new look coming to the world of jodywhitesides.com. A fresh and different approach to the “dot com” is coming. Its got me a bit excited. Mostly because its going to be way more mobile oriented – yet still look really good on a full size desktop computer.

New Look

New look of more simplistic lines. Easier way to get to the music. Plus a little animation here and there. And the better part – an easier menu with less options. And a nice Easter egg to look at for those that hit a wrong link. All in good fun. Plus we’ll start tying all branding to each new single when they launch.

Stay tuned, more good things to come. Check back March 10th for the new look at my digs.
