THIS IS REAL LIFE

Real Life began in Melbourne in 1980 when David Sterry (guitarist) and Richard Zatorski (Synth) got together to write songs in the New Wave style.

In 1983, after supporting most of the top Aussie bands from Midnight Oil, INXS and Rose Tattoo, David and Richard signed to a local record company and went into the studio to record their first single Send Me an Angel.

The rest is history. The song was picked up in the USA by Curb Records. It hit the Billboardtop 30 and went to #1 for one month in Germany, as well as top ten inmost European countries. The Album Heartland was released and secondsingle Catch Me I'm Falling was a number one hit in Melbourne, top 30 inthe USA and top ten in Europe. Angel and Catch Me were in the German top ten at the Same time.

Real Life was a big part of the New Wave sound and featured heavily on alternative US radio stations such as KROQ as well as being the darlings of MTV. The band's unique take on New Wave music influenced many young musicians worldwide. David has been touring the world ever since. In the middle of the Pandemic a new album Sirens was recorded and released.
