About Us:
WORLD5 “POP ROCK WITH A GLOBAL INFLUENCE” Formed summer 2011, WORLD5 is the Pop-Rock band formed around lead singer and Grammy Award winner Pat Hunt. WORLD5´s founding members and old friends, guitarist Steffen Goeres, saxophonist Stephan Goessl and drummer Raimund Breitfeld have played together since their teenage years. Although life and personal projects put them in different locations around the globe, they kept alive the desires of making music together over the years. Realizing that very long distances separate them physically but not musically, they recorded their first album "Global Experience" over 3 continents together with former members Don Bruner and Roland Childs. The bands global influenced pop-rock sound drew the interest of Texans Pat Hunt and Randy Miller, who produced the bands first album, and they joined the band December 2012. June 2013 brought the departure of saxophonist Stephan Goessl and the arrival of Texan guitarist Joe Gavito. And so, the current World5 lineup is once again complete. Pat Hunt, Randy Miller, and Joe Gavito have played and worked together as musicians, songwriters and producers for 30 years in the music business. Pat has opened for acts such as Al Jarreau, The Pointer Sisters, Patti LaBelle, The Temptations, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, The Spinners, George Jones and many more. Pat has also produced CD's for the American country icon Mickey Gilley of Urban Cowboy fame as well as reggae legend Johnny Nash. Pat was a finalist on the original Star Search. He has co-written songs for Jennifer Holliday "I Never Thought I'd Fall In Love Again", "After She's Gone" for Mickey Gilley, and with Randy "Con Todo El Corazon" for the Grammy winning double platinum, international group La Mafia. Pat has played and arranged on five Grammy nominated CD's and won a Grammy. Randy made his name as a producer for the Latin´s Super Group La Mafia, producing 4 Grammy winning albums and getting 16 Grammy nominations along the way. His client list includes Marc Anthony, Kings X, Goldie Hawn, Burt Bacharach and Laura C. Singer-songwriter Johnny Nash hired Randy to remix the classic ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ and is continuing to work on several new albums with him. Originally a drummer, guitar has been Joe Gavito’s weapon of choice for virtually all of his professional life. Joe has been associated with Randy and Pat for years on the stage and in the studio, playing on projects by Mickey Gilley, Johnny Nash, Randy Miller, Pat Hunt, and many more. Joe has also performed on stage with The Original Texas Playboys, Ezra Charles and The Works, Charlie Pride, Mason Dixon, Frank Martin Gilligan, Larry Gatlin, Johnny Nash, BJ Thomas, The Platters, Israel Houghton and songwriters Alex Harvey, Whitey Schaffer and Freddie Powers. WORLD5´s first new song , "Man Of Action " with Pat and Randy was released on the label MondoTunes and made it to the National Top 100 Airplay Chart shortly after it´s release. The 2nd single "Maybe There´s A Way" was released in June and Pat, Randy ,Steffen, Joe and Raimund are currently working on their brand new album, which they are looking forward to presenting to you.

Heartbeat Of The World by WORLD5 wins AKADEMIA MUSIC AWARDS.

Los Angeles, CA Heartbeat Of The World by WORLD5 wins AKADEMIA MUSIC AWARDS. BEST SONG POP ROCK


World5 releases single “Man of Action”

The pop rock ensemble known as World5 (often stylized as WORLD5) have released their newest single, titled, “Man of Action.” The song is the first published single from their forthcoming 2013 LP release, due out in autumn. The song is an extremely catchy, jubilant track with expert instrumentation and brilliant songwriting in terms of both composition and lyrical flair. It is perhaps most important for fans of World5 because it represents the public introduction of recent additions to the band, Grammy-Award winners Pat Hunt (lead vocals) and Randy Miller (bass guitar), both of whom are instant mainstays of “Man of Action's” overall sound and style. This overarching sound has at its core the songwriting principles of legends such as Genesis, Yes, and The Beatles, whom World5 names as main influences, but the immediate sonic experience of “Man of Action” shares more in common with other great musicians. One hears upon pressing play a rock 'n' roll piano that brings to mind Elton John's “Bennie and the Jets,” or Billy Joel's “Big Shot.” Riding these youthfully insistent keys are the lead vocals of World5 newcomer, Pat Hunt. Hunt's vocals powerfully drive and command the song without dominating it. The timbre and slick classiness of his flawless delivery is perhaps best compared to the buoyant and masculine singing of Huey Lewis. Complimenting these booming, shining features is Randy Miller's bass work, which lies somewhere between the way-out-front, slap style of late disco-era bassists and the quietly confident work of Gail Ann Dorsey (longtime David Bowie session player). Also integral to the success of World5's sound are a brass section that hasn't been utilized in this gorgeous capacity since The Joe Jackson Band, a funky, beautifully bright-sounding rhythm guitar not unlike the guitar groove made famous by The Jackson 5, and lead guitaring that has the unpretentious, yet spotlight-drawing character of Neil Young. It needs little explaining that World5's first single from their up-and-coming 2013 LP is promising amazing things, as well as demonstrating that these large promises are, without a doubt, certain to be fulfilled. “Man of Action” by World5 is available online worldwide 12 March 2013. -S. McCauley Staff Press Release Writer MondoTunes The single “Man of Action” is distributed globally by MondoTunes (www.MondoTunes.com) and is available at iTunes for convenient purchase and download MondoTunes (www.mondotunes.com) supplies the largest music distribution in the world and provides upstream services for many major labels in search of breakout artists.

WORLD5 TO RELEASE "GLOBAL EXPERIENCE" MAY 1ST 2012

SAN LUIS REY, CA:  Collaborating between five band members spanning four countries with a 4-time Grammy winning producer in a Houston recording studio, and having recently received two number-one slots on prominent internet charts and a Gold Award for their promotional single and video, the band World5 will be releasing their debut album titled "Global Experience" later this spring.   "I think the album is a cool blend of different styles." states 4-time Grammy winning producer Randy Miller.  "The songs have the common thread of the individual members of the group bringing their own artistic visions to bring about the globally diverse sound of World 5 . It was a great experience to mix and master this album using technology to overcome time and space to bring all of our musical ideas together.  I think the album turned out the way we all hoped it would....very cool!" "You And I", which is about a positive relationship between a young couple about to be engaged has been well received by a number of folks having reached top 5 slots at such internet stations as the Independent Music Network hosted by Michael Damien, number one on All Access' Songdish and the internet radio show "Radio Gets Wild" gave the single their "Gold Award" among other positive responses from internet outlets on a worldwide level.  The video to the single has also garnered much attention as a feel-good story that has gotten over 20,000 views on YouTube, Vimeo and other outlets.  "We already had such a great response from the song but when we released the video the song has gotten so much more attention" states drummer/ percussionist Raimund Breitfeld. "People from all around the world can easily identify themselves with this storyline in the video." "We were very excited when we heard that "You And I" had hit #1 on a couple of charts and #4 on another," states vocalist Don Bruner as the bands first single from their upcoming album was such a success in a short period.  "One of the things that we were hoping for was that our music would not only be appreciated in our home countries but have an appeal to everyone, everywhere."
