Thousands of Air Supply (www.airsupplymusic.com) fans across Asia will be happy to note that their two recently released independent recordings, Free Love and The Singer and the Song, will now be available across the continent where the 80’s hit-makers continue to be a live concert sensation.
Odds On Records, the Las Vegas based indie label marketing these recordings in America, struck a deal with the G-pop company in Asia to license and distribute them in countries throughout the continent.
G-pop is an international licensing/marketing and booking company with offices in Germany and Singapore, focusing on representing international artists and labels to sell their music to a network of major and independent record companies across the Asia Pacific region.
Chadrick Yeo, Managing Director of G-pop, says, “Air Supply is an internationally renowned and well respected household brand name. We are very honored by this partnership and having Air Supply on board is a dream come true for us at G-pop.”
Speaking on behalf of himself and partner Graham Russell, Air Supply’s Russell Hitchcock says, “We love our fans in Asia and look forward to returning every year to perform for them. We’re excited that they now will have no problem getting copies of these new albums we are so proud of.”
Air Supply’s current overseas tour (www.airsupplymusic.com/tour.html) includes October dates in The Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Proceeds from their October 3 concert at the Aranetta Coliseum in Quezon City/Manila will be contributed to an assistance fund for victims of the deadly flooding that occurred in the wake of Tropical Storm Ketsana, which hit the country September 26. The effort was spearheaded by Rajah Broadcasting Network in the Philippines.
Graham Russell says, “We send out our prayers and best wishes to the people affected by this recent storm and are happy to do our part to give back to the citizens of a country that has always been so hospitable to us.”
