Biography

Hailing from Atlanta GA, Down to the Shake originated as an experiment in sound between five friends in the late 1990’s. Although the band has been through line-up changes, the melding of in-your-face hard rock and neo-electric atmosphere continues to describe this band.

With a dynamic range of musical influences that comes together in the music, and like the various personalities of its individual parts, DTTS projects a refreshingly unique style that shines amongst the crowds of talented artists in Atlanta.
Each song uses different styles and approaches to form a sound that’s hard to identify as any specific single genre. Listeners can identify sounds from a wide variety of styles, ranging from heavy metal, new rock, alternative, ska, electronic, jazz to straight-ahead rock. Each song is a separate entity, with hooks flowing in a uniquely tasteful manner.
Noted for an extremely high-energy live show, a DTTS show is a stirring blend of energy, visual stimulation and pleasing sound. The charismatic “Page-Plant-ish” partnership of vocalist/lyricist front-man Clabeaux and (original member) exceptional guitarist Hoskins with a solid rhythm section underneath, results in progressive song-writing and valid stage presence that has been known to get crowds up on their feet within the first few chords strummed.
DTTS has just completed a full length album at Atlanta’s Sonica Recording (voted as one of the hottest new rooms nationally in 2002) with John Brigelvich, the band looks forward to monthly'shows at popular venues, a southeastern US-based tour, and local airplay.
DTTS exudes musical confidence so; whether you are ready for your first taste or another heapin’ helpin’, get up, get ready to SHAKE to a new sound at a show to remember.

Lyrics

Invisible

Written By: Dale Clabeaux


FEELING LIKE I’M UNDER THE WIRE
INTERNAL TONMENT FUELS THE FIRE
DESPARATE ACTIONS I MUST BREAK FREE
NO ESCAPE FROM THIS MISERY

CAN YOU SEE
CAN YOU FEEL
AM I SEEN
INVISIBLE

ALONE I’M LIVING A MENASED DREAM
CASTING SHADOWS FOR NONE TO SEE
THE BELL IS CHIMEING IT’S TERROR TOLL
REMINDING ME OF THE BITTER COLD

WHY CAN’T YOU SEE
WHY CAN’T YOU FEEL
AM I NOT SEEN
INVISIBLE

I AM THE LONELY ONE
FORESAKEN I’VE COME UNDONE
NEGLECTED AND ON MY OWN
I DON’T WANT TO FEEL ALONE

I FIND MYSELF SO LOST INSIDE
OH SO CAREFUL WHAT I MIGHT FIND
AN ANSWER TARNISHED WITH TAINTED PAST
A BLACKED SOUL WITH A STRANGERS MASK

CAN YOU SEE
CAN YOU FEEL
AM I SEEN
INVISIBLE

Not The Same

Written By: Dale Clabeaux

You see me but you don’t know me
No one can see the things I see
I appear to be a mirrored image
I appear to be just like you

Now when I pray for my desires
I fear don’t know what to say
Just walk away
I’m not the same as you

Troubled times and I’ve discovered
No one can understand my truth
I feel like I'm sinking deeper
I feel like I’ve lost control

And when I pray for my desires
I fear I don’t know what to say
Just walk away
I’m not the same as you
As you

We just don’t see things
You just don’t feel me

I wish that we could walk
Into the sunset

Fading out in a perfect song
I don’t want to hurt you
I just want to save me
And if you walk away
Only to be free

I may mistake you for a desert island
I may discover that I now know nothing
I won’t give up I won’t be led off target
I trip and fall but I am not afraid

Just walk away
I’m not the same as you
Just walk away
I’m not the same as you
As you

HYPNOTIZED

HYPNOTIZED

Welcome to my world
It’s a place of worn out empathy
Haunting in darkness
You can share my harsh reality

Pre:
See my disguise
Now be the victim of this crime
Don’t be afraid
Live by night die by the day
No time to fear
Look to the sky I disappear
Sheltered black light
Powerless are you to run and hide

I can be so patient
Draw you in with oh so many ways
Welcome to my lair
Feel my breath upon your pale neck

Chorus
Damn these lies you're hypnotized
Drawn into my passion
Close your’e eyes you're tranquilized
Lost eternal fashion

Hidden by deception
Thrust upon the blood stained canopy
Painting your portrait
Take control I’ll take your soul

Chorus

Under the full moon light
I’ll put you deep into my spell
Release your fears don’t run away
Now slip into immortal trance

Chorus
