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."
World5 is managed by Black Mountain Productions Inc. and released through Island Def Jam Digital Distribution.
