WILL AND THE POWER is a project by

singer/songwriter/guitarist & producer 

WILL HOFMANN

It started in 1991 with the Album

WILL AND THE POWER (BMG/Hansa), including the hitsingles 

WE ARE THE POWER &

LET THE MUSIC SAY GOODBYE.

WILL: 

"At the moment I am working on a compilation of brand new songs and older unreleased Material. All on the subject Love - from human relations to spiritual Love (which we need more than ever)".

"Feel the heat, feel the fire,

feel the beat of your heart.

Feel the golden serpent and the spirit within.

We are here in this world,

because we want to change!

European unity."

(We Are The Power)

WILL HOFMANN

"Rock my soul wherever I go, rock my soul.

Rock my soul, whenever I lose my faith.

In this tricky game of life, what is right or wrong? 

Rock my soul and make me whole."

(Rock My Soul)

60's:

My small town face got into the race. I was trapped in the child's mind that I had.

70's:

School of Arts - full of lonely hearts. Got a guitar and played in bands, learned from enemies and learned from friends.

 

80's:

Hey L.A., let us rock, never let the music stop. Draft notice - went back home, heart felt heavy like a stone.

But time goes by and songs remain, hey Vienna, here I am.

90's:

Got signed, got a new band, the moment was my friend. I thought we would go anywhere.

Was naiv and afraid, felt alone and betrayed. I was close to the razor blade.

 

00's:

I thought when nothing here makes sense, I rather go inside - beyond of any wrong or right.

Wanted to relax and enjoy -  with the innocence of a boy. Guru and friends turned out to be gangsters, 

right were the questions, wrong were the answers.

10's:

After darkness, after rain, the sun is back again. Still got a guitar, got a band and not much to pretend. 

I think we can go anywhere - yeah! My small town face is back in the race.

"I've been up I've been down, I have come around.

I have lost I have won, I still haven't found.

If I sing, if I dance, if I play, I got a bullet in my soul.

If I laugh, if I cry, if I pray, I got a bullet in my soul."

(Bullet In My Soul)

"All I ever wanted was 

All I ever needed

Not to take before I give

All I ever wanted

was Love

"Once in a while we all believe,

we all where born to find.

once in a while we pray to god,

for all the love in the world.

But it's already there,

it's there inside the heart.

Because the heart is the only place there is,

for all the love in the world."

(For All The Love In The World)
