This Los Angeles pop rock quartet serves up nothing but THE REALS thing. An addictive sonic cocktail of hook heavy melodies & Infectious retro riffs that packed a wallop on the bands independent 1999 release, "Three for the Road ". The Reals, founded by lead singer/guitarist Matt Ferguson, joined by drummer J.C. Morgan, bassist Tony Hebert & Rob Ahlers on keys , guitars & vocals are ordering another round for 2000 with their upcoming EP ( untitled at press time ).

While playing at a local L.A. nightspot , THE REALS garnered the attention of the The Rembrandts' Danny Wilde who subsequently sang back up,co-produced & mixed many new cuts with the band. Wilde helped to hone thier studio sound on tracks including " Thank you Card ", "She's the One " , " Settle for less" & “ Around “ among others. The Guitar driven " Settle For Less" visits the lyrical theme of lovesick infatuation in the refrain" I know I should settle for less / But I want you & more ", While " She's the One" offers a related lament: ( you ) Start me off slow, then finish with me fast/ Thought my heart was tough/But yours was built to last/ a Lifetime ". Musically, THE REALS offer a distinctive classic modern hybrid which echo the influence of such bands as Crowded House, Cheap Trick & the Cars, and is exemplified on the McCartneyesque " Thank you Card " which features tone infused guitars textured with layers of harmony & percussion.

THE REALS are currently putting the finishing touches on their latest recordings with plans to tour the west coast the coming months. Having their song “ Thank you Card “ placed in the WB’s hit t.v. series “ Jack & Jill “ it’s clear the Reals are destined for Success !
