Indie Label Odds On Records Scores Billboard Chart Breakthroughs for Legendary Hitmakers Air Supply and Emerging Electro Dance/Pop Duo Ultraviolet Sound
Who Says Indie Labels Can't Play With the Big Boys?
LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) - Odds On Records (www.oddsonrecords.com) celebrates its first anniversary with major breakthroughs on the Billboard charts for two dynamic duos that reflect the diversity of its growing roster -- famed '80s chart toppers Air Supply and emerging electro dance/pop act Ultraviolet Sound.
Earlier this year, Air Supply (Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock) scored their first Billboard chart hit in 17 years with "Dance With Me," the infectious first single from Mumbo Jumbo, their Odds On debut and first album of original material in eight years. "Dance With Me" reached #28 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, and their follow-up single "Faith In Love" is up to #30 this week, poised to surpass the success of the previous hit.
Ultraviolet Sound (Sarah Hudson and Sami D.) toured nonstop for a year and a half and opened for Lady GaGa, Katy Perry and many other top artists. Their irresistible, provocative debut single "Suck My Kiss" (co-written with veteran tunesmith Desmond Child) was released September 14, debuting on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Songs Chart at #46; it is currently #40 and rising.
Currently shooting a video for "Suck My Kiss," UVS will be going for pop radio ads in early October.
Odds On Records President Ted Joseph says, "Our early success with two Billboard charted artists is a testament to their great music and the quality of our organization."
Many of the superstars Air Supply is sharing chart space with weren't born when the duo scored its enduring hits "Lost In Love," "Making Love Out of Nothing At All" and "The One That You Love." Graham Russell was honored this year with a BMI Million-Air Certificate recognizing 3 million performances of the duo's hit "All Out Of Love."
UVS has attracted major attention from celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, 944 Magazine, Interview Magazine, Las Vegas City Life and arjanwrites.com. UVS's music has been featured on MTV's "The Hills" and "Real World," ABC's "Castle" and "The Beautiful Life," Lifetime, Oprah and The Bernie Mac Show.
