“POP ROCK WITH A GLOBAL INFLUENCE”
WORLD5 started with five close friends who were professional musicians. Although life and personal projects put them in different locations around the globe, they kept alive the desires of making music together. Realizing that very long distances separate them physically but not musically, they used the power of the World Wide Web to shorten the physical distance.They recorded their first album "Global Experience" over 3 continents together, founding members were Raimund Breitfeld, Steffen Goeres, Don Bruner , Stephan Goessl and Roland Childs.
Texans Pat Hunt and Randy Miller, who produced the bands first album, joined the band replacing Don Bruner and Roland Childs december 2012.
June 2013 brought the departure of saxophonist Stephan Goessl and the arrival of Texan guitarist Joe Gavito. 2016 ,Album Nr.2 "Heartbeat Of The World" was released on Spectra Music Group.
Now in 2017 WORLD5 are in their 3rd incarnation with a new line up having recruited the talents of tall blonde Englishman, singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Sam Stevens. Whilst looking for a new singer and having sat through over 300 audition tapes, Raimund Breitfeld stumbled across Sam's unique and lilting voice and emotive songwriting on a random websearch. The die was cast, he was recruited and Sam flew to Sweden to commence writing and recording tracks for the latest WORLD5 Album Number 3.
