Release Notes:

“Make It Alright” is the new single from Grupo X. Taken from the band’s highly-rated, latest album, “As Hills Go By”, the track is a laid-back, soulful winter-warmer; a tasty slice of true British soul. The release features the sultry voice of the fantastic Lisa Millett, as well as Grupo X’s trademark grooving drums and percussion, catchy guitar riffs and
powerful horns.

“Make It Alright” is a follow-up to the successful Grupo X single, “Waiting All Day,” which gained DJ support and airplay from Lauren Laverne and Craig Charles (BBC 6 Music), Graeme Park (1Mix Radio), Simon Harrison (The Basic Soul Show), Rhys Phillips (Radio Cardiff), Ginger Tony (Solar Radio), Merijn Tiemessen (KX Radio, Netherlands), DJ Nova (Rodon FM, Greece), Velanche (Urban Landscapes, USA) and many more.

“Throughout, vocalist Lisa Millett is exceptional – bringing the right balance of passion and tenderness to everything. She’s particularly outstanding on the album’s real highlight, the gentle swayer ‘Make It Alright’. It’s a sweet confection……a delight!”
Bill Buckley,

“Grupo X deliver soulful intensity and feel-good funky flow….epic, rootsy and, with singer Lisa Millett out front, often spine-tingling.”
Ben Lovett, Blues and Soul Magazine
