If you are looking for some modern Christmas music then I have an offering for you! Worldwide Groove has released a wonderful ditty for the holidays. The vocalist has the perfect voice for a Christmas song. It’s so clear, sweet and that bit of innocence I think we all look for this time of year. I’m enjoying the story line so much. Makes me wanna spend time with my loved ones sharing stories, congratulating each other on our wins and offering a supportive hand to cope with the losses. Musically it’s so interesting! It’s not a traditional band, its more electropop so it’s more of these sound effects and tones layered beautifully upon each other yet still taking a backseat to the vocals.
I’m going to download this and put it on my Christmas playlist. It’s got all my old favorites along with a couple of new songs that I know will be favorites very soon. It’s got a bit of a classic taste to it so you can put it with your older pop Christmas songs from bands like The Carpenters. It’s going to make the perfect backdrop to your holiday festivities!
Who They Are:
Worldwide Groove Corporation are definitely against the grain in the city they call home. Being known for their electronic flair, whether it be programmed pop or downtempo chill, WGC are anything but country when left to their own creative inspiration. This blessing/curse in the midst of Nashville, TN has given them a niche that keeps them working on a variety of music projects for people from around the world.
Between the work of Kurt and Ellen, their music has been used in films, on national TV ad campaigns, in major network TV shows, and discussed at international arts festivals.
Their string arrangements have been featured on records for artists such as Third Day and Plumb, and they are known for their talent of reinvention which is evident in their classic country remixes and their treatment of old jazz standards on their 2007 record “Fever: Chillodesiac Lounge, vol. 1”.
From this record, their instrumental track “Smoke & Mirrors” topped the chart on the Sirius XM chill station for two months, and several tracks have appeared on compilations around the world. Fifteen DJs in 10 different countries contributed their amazing talents to the WGC remix releases in 2009, giving them a tremendous global connection.
As artists, in 2014 WGC are releasing a series of singles and small EPs expanding their musical umbrella, ranging from purely fun electro pop to deeper more emotionally complex downtempo leanings. Although the emotional range is broad, the core of their tracks, the rich textures, sultry grooves and catchy beats remain the staple of their sound. The series is called the “Year of the Groove” and includes their electropop song “Supermodel Astronaut” which sparked the Supermodel Astronaut Challenge.
The Band is:
Ellen Tift: Arranging, Production, Composing, Vocals
