Liberty X originally consisted of five members and originally appeared on ‘Popstars’ and were snapped up by Richard Branson for his record label V2 Records.
Their first single ‘Thinking it over’ went to the Top 5 in the charts and set the pace for a hugely successful debut album selling over a million copies worldwide.
Following a high court battle which saw the band having to change their name from Liberty to Liberty X, the band stormed back with a smash hit number single ‘Just a Little’. The song won an Ivor Novello award and earned them a Brit award for the Best British Single, the only award voted for by the public and it subsequently became the 5th most played song of the noughties (ref. BBC Online).
The band blazed a trail through the pop scene, having a sell-out UK tour, releasing 3 albums and achieving 8 top ten hits including one for ‘Children in Need’.
