The band WORLD5 consists of five close friends: Raimund Breitfeld (Gothenburg, Sweden), Don Bruner (San Diego, CA), Stephan Goessl (Munich, Germany), Steffen Goeres (Wellington, New Zealand), and Roland Childs (New York) who all have performed live together over the years but later found homes in separate countries. Having great chemistry and the advantage of the internet, the band is able to collaborate and create musically while communicating via Skype. 16-time nominated and 4-time Grammy winning producer Randy Miller heard the potential in their songwriting and wanted to work with the band, as did mastering professional Stephen Marcussen (Santana, Pete Yorn, John Hiatt) on their debut album.
