History

The band initially scored minor success in the UK Singles Chart with two of their first three singles "Crazy For You" (#44) and "Seventeen" (#44).[3] They also released "Face To Face" which was withdrawn from sale by their record label. "Crazy For You" was re-released in the UK entering the UK Singles Chart at #24, and climbing to finally reach a #2 peak selling over 600,000 copies in the process. The success of "Crazy For You" led to a remix of "Seventeen"; the track was unable to match the popularity of "Crazy For You" and peaked at #11.

Their debut album entitled Let Loose featuring keyboard player Adam Lee was released peaking at #20 and selling 100,000 copies. The album release was followed by the single "One Night Stand" which peaked at #12. The final track to be taken from the album was the ballad "Best In Me" which, according to the album sleeve, was recorded in lead singer's Wermerling's bedroom at the age of fifteen. The track became their second UK Top 10 hit, peaking at #8.[3]

The outfit then embarked on a UK tour, and after a seven-month hiatus, Let Loose returned with a new single "Everybody Say Everybody Do" which peaked at #29. Another seven months passed before a new single was released - a cover of the Bread track "Make It with You". The single reached #7 and gave the group their third Top 10 success.[3] This was followed with "'Take It Easy" which peaked at #25.[3]

The follow-up album Rollercoaster was released and peaked at #42 with sales of less than 30,000 copies. Two months later, a final single was released from the album in time for the Christmas market, but "Darling Be Home Soon" became the band's lowest charting single reaching #65,[3] and Let Loose split up shortly afterwards. Wermerling joined the band Bottlefly, Rob Jeffrey continued playing guitar in other projects and Lee Murray became a DJ, session drummer, and has worked in management with Holly Valance, Kelly Brook and Page 3 model Keeley Hazell.

In 1998, a Best of Let Loose album was released, but missed out on a UK Albums Chart position.

In 2006, Wermerling released his debut solo album, Lost. The album was released and funded by Wermerling and was available for download and as a CD through CDBaby.com and Wermerling's own website, but failed to make the chart.

In early 2008, Wermerling and Murray reunited to write and record together under the Let Loose name - Rob Jeffrey was contacted but declined to be involved in the band's comeback. As of December 2008 four new songs had been added to the official Let Loose Myspace page and a photo shoot has taken place. The band reported via Myspace that they are currently in talks with several record labels, regarding possible recording contracts for the band. Shortly afterwards, Wermerling and Murray parted way; however this time, Wermerling recruited four other all new band members. The album Paint It In Gold was released independently in May 2009, available as a limited CD through Wermerling's own website, and the first live appearance of Let Loose with their new line-up was on 4 June 2009.

In April 2014 it was announced that the original lineup, including Rob Jeffrey, were reforming for an arena tour called "Another Time, Another Place." [1] They were due to share the bill with other 90s and 00s acts All Saints, Atomic Kitten, East 17, Big Brovaz and Jenny Berggren from Ace Of Base. The tour was due to visit 8 UK cities in November 2014. Just two weeks after the tickets went on sale, the tour was cancelled. It's unclear whether Let Loose will continue with the planned reunion.[2]
