Odyssey on-line
Odyssey on MySpace (coming soon)

THE GLORY DAYS of top vocal trio 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.

The group actually started out being billed as "The Lopez Sisters" when there were three of them - Lillian, Louise, and Carmen. An agent spotted them at a concert and booked them for a five month European tour. When they returned to the States, Carmen left the trio to marry, but Lillian and Louise resolved to continue, and so recruited a replacement.

From their debut album emerged their first smash single - "Native New Yorker", an international hit late in 1977. Additionally, Lillian's eldest son, Steven Collazo had become part of Odyssey behind the scenes, recording as a background vocalist and journeyman session musician. 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.

Performing around the UK and Europe through the 80's and into the 90's, the journey continued, and In 1994, Steven moved up to co-front the group and produce new versions of the Odyssey classics while appearing with Lillian on television and touring the arenas, top hotels, clubs and major holiday villages throughout the UK and Europe.

Lillian and Louise have since acquired new talents, interests, and directions, making way for Steven to take the "odyssey" further, along with Annis Peters and Jordan Bailey.

Annis has had her own successful career as a soloist, vocalist with Billy Ocean and as a member of the very popular Boney M. She has known Odyssey over the years, crossing their paths at various places throughout the world. She understands its' very essence, heart and soul.

Jordan has toured the world extensively as an in demand backing vocalist to the stars, including such greats as Joe Cocker, Depeche Mode, George Michael and David Bowie, to name but a few.

With such a strong line-up of talent and experience, Steven, Annis, and Jordan continue the very best of the classic Odyssey sound with a new vitality that combines old school with a modern flava' which keeps the music alive and flowing…. Indeed, the journey that is "Odyssey" continues.
