Feeling a bit camera shy


A cluster of three very different yet powerful members, Life Imitating, a Melbourne, Australian rock outfit, have continued to base their direction on the mixing of different influences. Mark Hutson (Guitar/Vocals) brings a rare songwriting talent accompanied by powerful yet emotive vocals and a totally unique approach to the guitar. Leo Wings (Drums), the pulse of Life Imitating, provides a keen musical ear and acute awareness of 'sound in space' that has shaped the evolution of this band's production. Angelo Saridis (Bass) evenly distributes his pop sensibility throughout the music, choosing melodic lines that blast the Life Imitating sound into orbit.

Life Imitating's first EP 'Stories' (Sept. 2001) made the statement 'This is Life Imitating!! We are here!!'. Mark's songwriting development is clearly exhibited here with a wide variety of musical styles explored, an unmistakable Life Imitating trait. Leo Wings, NMIT qualified in Music Business Management and former producer of Melbourne Band 'In theory', shaped the production process and took away with him an evergrowing list of recording ideas.

'Stories' was distributed throughout Melbourne's hippest record stores (Polyester, Gaslight) and achieved strong support from the buying public. Riding on the success of 'Stories', Life Imitating's original line up enjoyed a busy period of live performance throughout 2002 and 2004, frequenting local haunts The Armadale and The Planet Upstairs. Life Imitating's presence on the Internet was also attracting listeners from all over the world.

2004 represents a period of rapid development in the world of Life Imitating. Since the release of Stories, Life Imitating has expanded their catalogue of recordings by more than 30 songs. A new line up, a new web site, new name and a new bag of songs has stirred up the faithful fan base.

Life Imitating's next totally independent EP is due for release in May/June 2004 and will include favourties like 'Running to the Sun' and 'Platinum Scissors'.
