WORLD5 – ‘Heartbeat Of The World’

Sung with the utmost of hope is WORLD5’s “Heartbeat Of The World”. Possessing an inviting thoughtful pop sensibility reminiscent of Genesis, the songs are filled with bright shining textures. Lyrically articulate these are pieces that sing out for the best in the world. By letting them interact ever so gracefully what results is a fully realized work, one that works to present their singular optimistic vision of the world. Attention to detail results in a number of flourishes that permeate every piece, from slight keyboard riffs to an overall sense of freedom. Group play is magnificent as WORLD5 listen to each other.

Opening up with the grandeur of “Heartbeat Of The World” the album starts off strong. From there they move to the tenderness of “Maybe There’s A Way”. Elements of country follow into the impassioned song of devotion “Because Of You”. Downright giddy in nature is the celebratory work of “Man Of Action” by far the highlight of the album. Softer in its tone is the delicate ballad of “I Promise You” complete with atmospheric guitar work and an overall sense of wonder. Akin to a journey is the expansive sound of “Stay” with its nimble percussion one of its highlights. Deserving to be felt as much as heard is the happiness of “Footprints”. Closing the album off on an introspective note is “Loving A Restless Heart”.

Cover Album Heartbeat Of The World

Adult Contemporary Band WORLD5 is set to release their highly anticipated second album on the Spectra Music Group label.

WORLD5 will release their new CD, “Heartbeat  Of The World”, to anticipated critical acclaim October 7, 2016.

“Heartbeat  Of The World", the band´s sophomore release, is an epic album, 11 songs of Adult Contemporary / Pop-Rock music, with the earnest singing of Grammy Award winner Pat Hunt in the album's spotlight.The album is already broadcasted worldwide through terrestrial and internet radio, podcasts and music blogs and has also  been added to playlists on giants such as Clear Channel Network / IHeart Radio.

The immediate sonic experience of the album, reveals its core.Based in the genre of Billy Joel, Michael McDonald and Toto, Pat Hunt's vocals powerfully drive and command the songs without dominating them. The timbre and slick classiness of his flawless delivery is perhaps best compared to James Ingram and Michael McDonald.Complimenting these features is the brilliant guitar work by Joe Gavito and Steffen Goeres, Grammy Award winner  Randy Miller on bass and Raimund Breitfeld on drums.

"WOW" was what I said when I first heard this unsigned band ... I can't believe we did'nt pick-up on them earlier - and it was no thanks to a lazy computer that nearly forgot to let us know their demo had a arrived sometime last year.

However, not even the Gremlins could stop fate from placing WORLD5 as the CCR 2 Unsigned Members Music Allience 'Musicians of the Month'. An accolade they deserve for craftmanship of both their writing and performance. Anyone who loves an 80's AOR sound, then you're in for a treat - I got a real sense of Bruce Hornsby collaberating with Hall and Oates - an unlikley supergroup I know, but I think if those two groups were jamming together, you might get something very similar. Well done guy's - You're getting high rotation all month on CCR 2 and a certificate is on its way to you. Check them out at www.world5music.com

Having worked in the music industry for more than 40 years, Pat Hunt is what you might call a veteran musician. He's contributed to four Grammy Award-nominated albums and one Grammy award-winning album, and has opened for well-known artists such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and theTemptations in the 1980s.
Despite his success, Hunt said something just didn't feel right. He struggled with drugs, alcohol and a feeling of emptiness before dedicating his life to God in 1987. Hunt dedicated his musical talents to God and soon after began serving as a church worship leader.
"In 1993, I started serving in my first church as a worship leader, and 10 years later, I was ordained," he said. "I've been doing this as a full-time vocation for the past 14 years."
In 2003, Hunt joined the staff of Parkway Fellowship Church, where he serves as worship pastor.
"My favorite thing, Sunday morning, leading worship, is just watching people out there worshipping and giving it their all, and knowing that you are, in some way, helping to usher people's relationship with the Lord," he said.
Hunt is also the lead singer and keyboardist for the world concept band World5, which consists of five members who collaborate from their homes in the United States, New Zealand, Sweden and Germany. The band's sophomore album, "Man of Action," is due to be released this fall, and the title track is currently in the top 200 on the U.S. music charts.
When he's not busy fulfilling his duties as worship pastor at Parkway Fellowship Church or working on World5's sophomore album, Hunt enjoys golfing and spending time with his wife, singer Tareva Henderson; daughter; and granddaughter.
