The Cueva Espíritu Santo in the Morazan district of El Salvador is famed for its ancient petroglyphs but among the prehistoric cave paintings two figures stand out, they are unlike anything else. They look of the future, they look OffWorld.
Were these figures, etched into the rock, visitors from another place and dimension? Did they plant the seeds of a civilisation?
Perhaps they fell in love with the primitive but infectious rhythms they heard and decided to stick around?
In return imparting a wisdom and knowledge beyond anything seen before on Earth?
Perhaps they hung out in New Orleans when Jazz floated out of the music halls and up the Mississippi?
Were they there when those first proto-funk sounds followed? The gravitational pull of the downbeat?
Are they here still, meeting up in dive bars to play Extra-Terrestrial Blues?

OffWorld began jamming old gospel, soul and funk numbers in a West London studio. Working in breaks in schedules, a collection of music slowly coalesced. Influenced by soul, blues, funk, jazz and rock, no limits or constraints were imposed.

Currently based in West London and Philadelphia, OffWorld are:

Krysten Cummings - Vocals.
Richard Archer - Vocals/Electric Piano.
Wolsey White - Guitar.
Smiley Barnard - Drums.
Dale Davis - Bass.
