Formed in 1975, Air Supply members Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock burst into the music scene with their unique vocals, harmonic ballads and soft rock sound. Early in their career, the duo performed throughout Australia, winning over fans with hit singles like “Love and Other Bruises.” Air Supply later gained international recognition as the opening act for Rod Stewart’s North American tour.
Air Supply’s popularity skyrocketed with the release of their album “Lost in Love,” which sold more than two million copies. The album included the hit songs “All Out of Love,” “Every Woman in the World” and “Lost in Love,” which topped music charts across the globe, including in Australia, the U.K. and the United States. The soft rock group went on to release 30 albums and more hit singles like “The One That You Love,” “Making Love Out of Nothing,” “Even the Nights Are Better,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Just as I Am.”
After years of producing multiple hits and performing all over the world, Air Supply has received numerous recognitions as one of the most celebrated soft rock groups in music history.
