The Legend of "Odyssey" is one of a long lasting search for success, but rather a story of truly international chart topping superstar status, the string of hits is endless, from "Native New Yorker" through "Dont't Tell Me Tell Her" and "If You're Looking For A Way Out" to the classic "Going Back To My Roots" and "Inside Out". Odyssey have become a household name. Not only they topped the pop charts in the UK, USA and every terretory in Europe but they also reach in to the hot slots of the charts in the middle and far east. This is not the story of a long strain for acclaim but a great wave of universal success and the story doesn't stop there.
Odyssey's first record "Native New Yorker" was simply the right song in the right place at the right time, having done the right amount of groundwork. Entering the billboard and cashbox charts before the Soul, Club and Dico charts, Odyssey demonstrated how much of a mainstream crossover group they actually are. Beautifully crafted catchy pop songs are what distinguishes them from their cult contempories.
There is no question that their music has a universal appeal. They are even stars in several Eastern block countries such as Poland and Yugoslavia and have recorded songs in Yoruba, Xhosa, French, Spanish, Italian and a dialect called Yanyego, a mixture of african and spanish which orginated in Cuba.
A truley international group, Odyssey likes to spend time in the UK and Europe, the true melting pot of the Western and Eastern culture. Britain provides the base for this cultural enhancement.
This combination of talent, good looks and love for music and culture, has brought Odyssey to the eyes of the world accalim. The love of travel has made the success of Odyssey a natural and far-reaching one.
Not for them the long hard slog to the top, their journey has been one of riding on the crest of an infinite legendary wave of success.
