Grupo X

Grupo X's blend of Latin, jazz, soul and bugalu has crossed the musical boundaries, gaining airplay by taste-making DJs BBC 6 Music's Lauren Laverne, Gilles Peterson and Craig Charles, as well as international club DJs including Louie Vega, Spinna, Snowboy, Osunlade and Bobbito.

Their 2001 debut album ‘X-Posure’, was nominated for a Latin Grammy. The band has also had success in Japan with their ‘Brand New Love EP’, featuring the outstandingly soulful, Lisa Millett, on vocals. Further acclaimed albums ‘Food ‘For Your Latin Soul' (2006) and ‘Grupo X Remixed’ (2009) featured the hits ‘Sunshine’, ‘X-Perience’ and ‘Whatever You Dream’.

In 2007, Grupo X’s track ‘Jonny's Bugalu’ featured on the DSW Shoes TV commercial across the USA. Among their fans is Quentin Tarantino who had them booked to play at the after-party to the London premiere of Kill Bill 2.

Grupo X's 2011 album, "As Hills Go By" was a celebrated foray into new musical territory, with a more laid-back, soulful, rootsy sound, described as "epic, rootsy and, with singer Lisa Millett out front, often spine-tingling" by Blues and Soul Magazine.

Grupo X have collaborated with many internationally-renowned artists over the years, including "Mr Bongo" Jack Costanzo at 2003 North Sea Jazz Festival. They have played UK shows with Ubiquity Records' Dave Pike, Bobby Matos and Johnny Blas, as well as performances with Cuban pianist Alfredo Rodriguez, NY salsero Jimmy Sabater (Fania Records) and salsa trombonist Jimmy Bosch. In 2009 Grupo X toured the UK with "The King of Latin Soul", Joe Bataan and Stones Throw Records' James Pants, followed by an appearance at the 2010 Vintage Festival with Joe Bataan.

Grupo X's recent live performances include shows for Craig Charles' Funk and Soul Club, Band on the Wall, Manchester, at Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho and Canary Wharf Jazz Festival 2011 and Floripa London.
