Libero Vox is the musical project of Luke Golledge, and his determination to maintain his creative independence lead him to name the band after a Latin expression meaning free or liberated voice.
The debut album of Libero Vox, the self-released Soul Conviction, is a confluence of styles and sounds ... his poetic lyrics and talented instrumentation make this a solid debut.
The songs were written and conceived independently of one another, and the result is an album with a wide variety of styles. Pop, folk, punk and soul all make an appearance, although there are similar lyrical themes throughout as Golledge bares his soul for all to see.
Life’s Simple Pleasures open the album, and it’s a good introduction to Libero Vox. It’s a simple pop folk song about appreciating the simple things in life, and a good sign of what’s to come. Comme Ci Comme Ca plays some acoustic flamenco against some heavier power riffs ... Hey Atlas is a more soulful introspective number, and a perfect showcase for Golledge’s personal lyrics, while Some Music is his stab (and a reasonable one) at a country song. Comfort Zone is another personal journey, with a haunting chorus, and the one-two punch of The Mirror and Route 666 are excellent high speed rock numbers ... Love and Outside In close out the album with a funk soul rock feel, and is another excellent pair of songs ...
Libero Vox have done a fine job of straddling the genres ... Golledge’s lyrics and vocals tie the songs together into a neat package.
Of course, the most admirable thing about the album is its fiercely independent release. Golledge is a self-made man, and his determination to write and record what he wants shines through in every song.
