Liberty X formed after auditioning for the ITV show 'Popstars' in 2001.
They were quickly noticed by Richard Branson and were snapped up by his record label V2 Records.
“From our first meeting I was completely wowed by their determination, optimism and refusal to give up. But it was when I heard their music that I knew they were going to be a huge success” ......Richard Branson
Their first single ‘Thinking It Over’ went 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 smash hit number 1 single ‘Just A Little’. The song won an Ivor Novello award, earned them a BRIT Award for 'Best British Single', the only award voted for by the public and 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’.
In a 7 year career they performed to massive audiences across the UK, Europe, Asia and Australasia.
