About Band

"Some people play rock n' roll, some people ARE rock n' roll."
-Chris Real

These are words one hears out of Christofur Real a lot.

Christofur Real comes by his rock n' roll roots honestly. As the son of a full time musician, while his school mates were going away to camp during summer vacation, Real was spending that time in bars and theatres across Canada on tour with his father. The music bug was bound to bite and bite hard.

Real picked up his first guitar at the not so tender age of 15, at the height of grunge.  The new wave of bands in the 90s influenced Real's songwriting sensibilities... but when it came to his playing, Chris spent the bulk of his time learning Slash and Joe Perry licks - influences you can still hear in his lead work today.

As he began to become more interested in songwriting, Real discovered the likes of The Cars and Elvis Costello et al, mixed them with a healthy dose of his love of the punk rock sound, and found what every songwriter dreams of finding... his own style.

Christofur's first successes in 'the biz' came as the primary songwriter and lead guitar player for Canadian band Another Wave. Another Wave certainly made a 'dent' in the Canadian music scene, producing a couple EP's and a full length effort, "Life's A Cherry" which spawned a single and video for a song called "-9-", which received airplay on both radio and on Canada's video music station, MuchMusic.

After Another Wave, Real formed his next project, SuperJuice, who recorded a full length of their own, "Appetite For Dysfunction", and promoted it across Canada playing shows with the likes of Robin Black, Jet Set Satellite, Default, Lukas Rossi, and Oversoul.

"The Others"
Chris Real's solo project he has dubbed 'Chris Real (and the others)', and is currently in the process of recording a debut album of songs that do what Chris Real songs do - detail the highs and lows of human brain, heart, and soul ownership in our day and age.

Stay tuned.

Hey hey, my my.
