Livin' Joy

Livin' Joy is a house music group from Italy who released two successful dance hits in the nineties. In 1994, fronted by American lead singer Janice Robinson, they hit number one on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with "Dreamer." The song turned out to be a mild sleeper hit on pop radio, finally entering the Hot 100 in early 1995. It peaked at number 72 and spent seventeen weeks on the chart. The song had a more successful run on the Official UK singles charts, hitting the number one spot after being re-issued (its original run in late 1994 had taken it to #18).

Little Volcanoes

"Its a good thing Little Volcanoes is a great band, because as far as my family and friends were concerned I gave up being a professional footballer in Chester to be a drug addict in a tenth floor flat in Salford." After answering a band's ad for a singer and attending an audition, Philip Quinn left the rehearsal room where he first met bassist Jon Rose, each disliking each other's music, but hating each other more.
