Alien Skin is George Pappas, long-time keyboardist and co-songwriter with chart topping Australian band Real Life whose multi-million selling '80s smash Send Me An Angel remains a regular on radio playlists worldwide and has been covered by a countless number of artists of many genres, even Gregorian chanters!
Prior joining Australian pioneering synthesizer band Real Life in the 90s, he led a number of Melbourne synth-driven acts of the era. Real Life had already achieved major success in many world markets and after a hiatus re emerged with Pappas as replacement keyboardist and co-writer. A number of albums and world tours ensued before the band wound down in 2005.
The concept of Alien Skin was born during the winter of 2007 with the recording of what was to become his debut album Don't Open Till Doomsday. Released by US label A Different Drum the following year, the album's success alongside its well received singles Razor Arms and the eponymous Alien Skin, validated the continuation of Alien Skin as a musical entity. Current album, 1980 REDUX released in 2017.
