Odyssey

Odyssey is a vocal trio originally from New York City, who are best known for their disco hits including “Native New Yorker” (1977), “Use It Up and Wear It Out” (1980) and “Going Back to My Roots” (1981). Now based in the United Kingdom, the band is led and fronted by Steven Collazo and continues to perform and record.

The group began as the Connecticut-born “Lopez Sisters” group, featuring Steven Collazo’s mother, Lillian Lopez (Lillian Lopez Collazo Jackson; November 16, 1935 – September 4, 2012), Louise Lopez (February 22, 1933 – January 28, 2015), and Carmen Lopez (July 12, 1934 – April 22, 2016), the latter having left the group before Odyssey, as the act would come to be known after her departure, was conceived.
