Music: Interview with World5, international music sensation

It's time for music! I'm so thrilled to introduce a wonderful band on the blog today. 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.

Check out their music and read more about them in the interview below.

Tell us a little about the story behind the band's name.

The band name popped up right away, it took only a couple of minutes to come up with it: 5 members literally spread around the world: WORLD5!

That's the idea! When did you decide to get together and make music? How do you manage to keep the band going when you're not living in the same city?

At the end of the 90's, beginning of 2000, the internet connections were as much advanced as it was needed to handle the sending of such big files, as they are created by recording music. We were all friends and working as professional musicians for more than 30 years, but were not able to work together as we are spread over 3 continents. The fast internet connection and skype opened the doors.

Technology helping to create great sounds! Who writes the lyrics and composes the sounds?

Every one of us contributes with music. We have extra lyricists, which are not members of the band. Michael Moore, Toni Becker and Kerryl Ann Frank.

Terrific voices. What genre do you consider yourself and what's your greatest influence?

We play and record Pop-Rock / Adult Contemporary music. We were influenced by hundreds of musicians during the years. From The Beatles to Sting, Genesis, Billy Joel and of course the "musician´s" band Toto to name just a few.

I love Toto! When was the first time you performed live?

We all started playing live in high school and never stopped playing.

That's what I'd call true calling. What do you enjoy the most between your interaction with the fans?

It is awesome to meet, chat and write to people from all over the globe. This confirms that music definitely does not have any borders.

Music brings people together, right? Do you believe music can influence change in a positive way? How?

Definitely, it unites people from different countries and different cultures, gives them a positive vibe which affects all their actions.

Agreed. What was the inspiration for your latest album?

Both the first album "Global Experience" and the latest album "Heartbeat Of The World" are based on a message of positive change.

We are very thankful for all support by our listeners. Without your support, music, (at least recorded music) could not exist!

We need positive change. Thank you so much for stopping by for this interview, and we wish you much success with the new album!
