|THE GLORY DAYS of top vocal group Odyssey, one of the most successful soul/disco acts of their era, culminated in the early 1980’s when they topped the charts with “Use It Up And Wear It Out”, scoring several other Top Ten hits in Britain and throughout the world.
From their debut album emerged their first smash single – “Native New Yorker”, an international hit late in 1977. A couple of years later, the group cut their “Hang Together” album. It contained “Use It Up And Wear It Out”, while the flipside, “Don’t Tell Me, Tell Her” received major airplay on US Black Radio. In the UK, “Use It Up” shot to the top ten, followed by “If You’re Looking For A Way Out”, “Inside Out”, and the Lamont Dozier classic “Going Back To My Roots”, among others.
Steven Collazo continues the legacy, taking their “odyssey” forward and further as a brand with an array of talented singers, musicians, DJs and producers. Sharing the stage with Steven are: Kate “Kay Jay” Sutherland, music industry veteran who has performed worldwide with many top artists including Alexander O’neal, Leee John of Imagination, Gwen Dickie (Rose Royce) and Jamiroqui as well as her own club hit “Weekend”; Michelle John, another industry veteran whose vocal dexterity have allowed her to work with and vocally coach artists covering the entire music spectrum, from R&B diva Whitney Houston to legendary tenor Andrea Bocelli, and has toured for 13 years with Eric Clapton amongst many others.
With remixes from such superstar DJs as Dimitri from Paris, Louie Vega, Ashley Beedle, Joey Negro, John Morales and others, the journey continues into the 21st century while keeping an eye towards the classic sound which made ODYSSEY famous.
