The Isley Brothers began singing together as youngsters in the early 1950s and today are considered one of the most important and influential groups of the last half-century. Ronald, Rudolph, Kelly and Vernon started out as a gospel group, performing in churches and other venues throughout their hometown of Cincinnati. Though raised primarily on the sounds of gospel music, the family band went on to experiment and record under the genres of doo-wop, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, soul, Motown, funk, quiet storm, disco, pop and hip-hop, all the while remaining true to their vision and voice. After leaving Cincinnati in 1957 for New York City, the group scored their first hit with the call-and-response classic “Shout” (now covered by countless bands across the country) and in 1962 reached true mainstream success with “Twist and Shout,” which became their first Top 40 hit on both the pop and R&B charts. At the end of the decade, their hit “It’s Your Thing” earned them the 1969 Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance.
The Isley Brothers’ career has seen dozens of #1 hits, both singles and albums; more than two dozen gold, platinum and multi-platinum singles and albums; countless awards; and the Brothers’ 1992 induction into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. What’s even more remarkable is how they’ve reinvented themselves with each passing year, thus consistently reaping a fresh crop of fans. Acknowledging their place in history, Ronald Isley says: “I knew Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson and The Temptations. I knew their intimate thoughts on music, and I knew them as friends. The Isley Brothers are in a unique place now because we possess that repository of knowledge, and we carry it on through our new material.”

Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock, the men of Air Supply, met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia. They became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. The duo began playing pizza parlors, coffee bars and night clubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for original songs that Graham was constantly writing.
After their song “Lost in Love” went to No. 1 in Australia, they began to open for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the U.S. and Canada. In 1980, music industry executive Clive Davis in New York signed Air Supply to Arista Records, and "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. The second single "All Out of Love," went up the charts even quicker. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies. "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies. Air Supply celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2015 and continue to delight audiences all over the world.
