SOFT ROCK DUO—AIR SUPPLY—TO PERFORM THE DIAMOND CENTER

The harmonies of Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock set them apart from the very beginning. Forming in 1975, Air Supply released their first single to critical acclaim, landing the No. 6 spot in Australia with “Love and Other Bruises.” After touring the country with Rod Stewart, Air Supply recorded and released a new album, Life Support, which included a Top 10 hit in Australia, “Lost in Love.” The song became the fastest selling single in the world at the time. The follow-up single, “All Out of Love,” went up the charts even quicker. In 1980, “Lost in Love” was named Song of the Year and Air Supply celebrated selling more than 10 million copies of their chart topping singles and more than 20 million copies of hit albums.

In 2010, Air Supply released the long-awaited album, Mumbo Jumbo, the group’s first studio recording in eight years. The album included the single, “Dance With Me,” which resulted in Billboard Magazine writing a featured article on the group titled, “Still Supplying The Hits After 35 Years.” The group was further honored in 2013 when it was announced that they would be inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame.

Over the following 23 years James has racked up sales of more than 3 million records, four RIAA gold albums, four GRAMMY nominations, a Soul Train Award, nominations for two NAACP Image Awards and 10 CD’s atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. In 2009 Billboard magazine named him the #3 Contemporary Jazz Artist Of The Decade. James continues his artistic evolution with his latest album, the dynamic futuresoul.
