Later on, Cherokee moved to Los Angeles, California where she signed on with manager Herb Trawick (who was also Brian McKnight's manager at the time). Trawick took Cherokee to RCA Records in 1999 and she landed a production deal.
Cherokee was featured in magazines such as "Rolling Stone," "Jet," "Vogue," "Esquire" and "Billboard" magazine & even appeared in the "New York Times." She was also featured in a large ad campaign for popular clothing outlet, Gap.
Due to the division of RCA Records responsible for releasing the album ended up folding & attempts to release it through Arista Records failed, the album was never released. Cherokee's second album can be found as a bootleg copy on Ebay, but in 2010, Cherokee released the album herself through her website.
After "Soul Parade," Cherokee performed a few shows in California and Japan, then took a break for 6 years. She married Grammy-award-winning record producer\mix engineer, Neal Pogue and gave birth to a daughter named Dream.
Later on, Cherokee started using MySpace.com to connect with her audience to get a feel for their interest in a new Cherokee album and found a lot of interest. Cherokee has been writing & recording demos along with playing local venues such as the Temple Bar.
In 2011, Cherokee (now Shock Mama Cherry) along with Brazilian guitarist Card started the duo, "Esprit De Corps" (or EDC) and they are currently performing live.
