" A five piece band that coalesced around the idea that music can transcend distance. World5 play a sophisticated brand of Adult Orientated Rock, that is both nostalgic and fresh sounding "
“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.
