Biography

The word ‚addicted’ didn’t just describe the feeling what Thorsten Willer was to his music but also was the name of his first band he started during his school days.

The Band played hundreds of shows in Germany, recorded four CDs and always was pleased to have a huge rocking fanbase supporting them.

In 2005 Willer founded an acoustic side-project named ‚RockRidge’ with singer/songwriter Oliver Henrich. They left Germany and headed to California to tour the world famous Los Angeles live-music scene.

In the year 2007 his main band ‚Addicted?’ broke up but there was no doubt that Thorsten Willer won’t give up.
He founded this solo-project ‚WILLER’ and after recording his EP ‚Imagine’ he played lots of shows all over Germany including support shows for internationally famous acts.

In fall 2008 Willer finally released his first Longplayer, whose title ‚The Only Way’ is also describing that sometimes there’s no question what to do…

In october 2008 the only way took him to Canada and the US to experience and capture the north american music scene…

Right now Willer is releasing his new EP 'World Crashing Down'

Lyrics

World Crashing Down

Written By: Thorsten Willer

since that day I can feel my world crashing down
since that day I can see the black but not the white
since that day reminders seem to be in every corner
since that day I still try to move on

since that day I cannot close this chapter
since that day I cannot ease the pain

my world’s crashing down
my world’s crashing down
oh and nothing seems to help
right now

there was a time where this all felt so right
there was a time where the steps were leading up
there was a time where I could imagine breathing this air
there was a time which I just cannot let go

my world’s crashing down
my world’s crashing down
oh and nothing seems to help right now
and I still feel this deep inside
and I still miss this every day
oh and nothing, no nothing seems to help
right now

my world’s crashing down
my world’s crashing down
oh and nothing seems to help
right now

there was a time where this all felt so right
there was a time where I could imagine breathing this air

World Crashing Down

since that day I can feel my world crashing down
since that day I can see the black but not the white
since that day reminders seem to be in every corner
since that day I still try to move on

since that day I cannot close this chapter
since that day I cannot ease the pain

my world’s crashing down
my world’s crashing down
oh and nothing seems to help
right now

there was a time where this all felt so right
there was a time where the steps were leading up
there was a time where I could imagine breathing this air
there was a time which I just cannot let go

my world’s crashing down
my world’s crashing down
oh and nothing seems to help right now
and I still feel this deep inside
and I still miss this every day
oh and nothing, no nothing seems to help
right now

my world’s crashing down
my world’s crashing down
oh and nothing seems to help
right now

there was a time where this all felt so right
there was a time where I could imagine breathing this air

The Long Road

Written By: Thorsten Willer

there is nothing I can see from here
nothing anywhere near
a lonely road ahead to go
I’m willing and I’m trying to show
oh but that river is a dirty one
see the light but that sun cannot shine anymore
I could fall
I could see
I could make this way ahead of me

colorblind – nothing’s real
black and grey is all that I feel

and I flow down that river
come wash away that shiver
I’ll go that long road

can I see a morning light
can it shine on my face so bright
again...

let it shine
show the way
help to find
light the right way now

will this long road end ever
might it lead to the never
but I’ll feel
feel this forever
and I flow down that river
and I know
there’s no way but that road
