Biography

Full Turnout is a Rock band, from Milton/Guelph, in Southern Ontario. Our music features strong vocals out front, driven by melodic lines, that will leave you singing everytime. Our music, although Rock based, easily crosses other genres such as alternative pop/rock, and yet still maintains a sound that is distinctly all our own. Lyrics that open a door everytime, combined with music that compliments your journey, with elements of mystery, longing, joy, hope and excitment.

In 2006, Full Turnout began as a group of Firefighters, jaming and writing original music. In 2008, our first cd was born, Perfect Neverending. A great accomplishment in a short year, to write, record 14 tracks. The feedback from the public and other indi platforms was amazing. We took a long hard look at ourselves, and where we wanted to go, and how we could grow as a band. We knew we had a good team with Pete Zettle on drums, and his lifelong bandmate Brian Parisotto on bass, both driving and containing our sound. Dave Drexler, a friend of our producer, joined the band as our frontman, and voice. We recognized his talent, and abilities were boundless. Brad Dugas, our producer and studio owner, expressed an interest in joining the band. Matt Krusky, the rhythm guitarist and writer of Perfect Neverending, began working on new songs with Brad. "Just Seconds Away" and "Hang on" were the first two products of that writing team. "Just Seconds Away" came in first place on "Our Stage" in March 2010 in Soft Rock. "Hang on" was voted a #1 song of the year on the revolutionary indie show, Fame Games. Both songs have achieved top 10 status on "Our stage" thru out 2010/2011. We knew we had something magical, with these kinda results. "Adversity", our new cd, is the result of 2 years of hard work, and intentional crafting and honing of the Full Turnout sound.

Full Turnout members include Dave Drexler on lead vocals. Matt Krusky on Rhythm Guitar. Brad Dugas on lead/rhythm guitar. Brian Parisotto on bass guitar. Pete Zettle on drums.

Lyrics

Just Seconds away

Written By: Matt Krusky & Brad Dugas

Verse 1: Random faces in a crowd, Is that you there? Where do you hide?
In this circle that we share, Around and round, till we both collide.

Prechorus: I feel your presence all around me, as I look behind to see if you have found me, cause I know……

Chorus: That your out there now, moving in this world I feel you shifting mine, everyday. And I just won’t allow, doubt to win me over. I look for you and God know’s I pray…. Your seconds away………………..

Verse 2: There’s a mystery to this world, a scripted fate, a guiding hand. A seed falling from the weight, to change the ground, where it will land.

Pre Chorus: I feel your gravity all around me. And the change you bring just circles and surrounds me, and I know…..

Bridge: And I just want to find you, and I, I, long for the day. So keep looking behind you, cause I know, I just know, your seconds away…

Chorus: That your out there now, moving in this I feel you shifting mine, everyday. And I just won’t allow, doubt to win me over, I look for you and God know’s I pray, Your seconds away………………..

Your just seconds away from me
Your just seconds away from me
i know, your just seconds away....

Hang On

Written By: Matt Krusky And Brad Dugas

“Hang On”
Written by Matt Krusky and Brad Dugas

Verse 1

Pleading eyes in this darkness, reaching out to me.

They speak a thousand words, that I can see.

Flashing lights, slowing time

Then I see you,

I trust I can change this

Pre Chorus:

I didn’t cause this to happen, and I will take it with me.

Chorus:

Hang on, help is on the way and I can see, your hope is gone.

Hang on, help is on the way and I can see, your hope is gone, but not with me….

Verse 2:

A warm peace in this darkness, settles over me

There’s something happening here, that I can’t see.

A dire hand, holding tight

Then I see you

and feel like I know you

On the Ground

Written By: Matt Krusky

ON THE GROUND
Written by Matt Krusky

I’m tangled up, in a feeling,
like I’ve never felt before.
I can’t wake up, it’s like I’m dreaming,
as my heart begins to soar.
And I forget everything, that I knew,
every time you come around.
You’ve got me spinning, without a clue,

Chorus:
Are my feet still on the ground…
Are my feet still on the ground…

My eyes they roam, around your face,
like a stary evening sky.
I loose all track of time and space,
as we close in eye to eye.
And I forget everything, but you,
as we talk without a sound.
You fill me up, but can you tell me ...

Bridge:
Going round and round,
I love the places that you take me.
Can you tell me is this just a dream…
but don’t wake me……….

I drink you up, with such a thirst,
and the joy is so unreal.
And every touch is like the first,
and I’m lost inside the feel.
And I’d give up anything, but you,
to remain and not come down.
You lift me up, but can you tell me…….

Descant/Alt Chorus:
I’m higher now, than I’ve ever been before,
I float when I’m with you.
Can you hold me while I look down.
I’m higher now, than I’ve ever been before,
I float when I’m with you.
Can you hold me while I look down, will ya hold me.
I’m higher now, than I’ve ever been before,
I love when I’m with you, going higher,
spinning round and round,
I don’t want to come down.

Adversity

Written By: Matt Krusky and Brad Dugas

ADVERSITY
Written by Brad Dugas & Matt Krusky

Adversity, my old friend,
haven’t seen you for awhile.
I’m looking to, embracing you,
with an open ended smile.
And all this time we fought it out,
looking for the finish line.
When we make it thru, it comes back to you,
that it was worth it all the time

Chorus:
Don’t throw it away, stick it out,
cause in the end it’s worth it.
Don’t throw it away, see it thru,
cause in the end it’s worth it.

Adversity, my old friend,
you’ve been standing by my side.
As I’m walking thru this life with you,
and the road is open wide

Think it Over

Written By: Matt Krusky

“Think it Over”
Written by Matt Krusky

Think it out before you answer, the second time, I know you well.
I can see your full of questions, what do they know, how can they tell.
With searching eyes you look beyond me, and quiz yourself,
How does it go?….. Don’t you know?…….

Chorus:
Cause I’m older now and twice as wise, to trip over those alibis…
So turn your face and look into my eyes, and tell me, a second time.
And you better think it over, I know you well….. (You better think it over.)

Picking words that fit the answers, within your mind. I know you well.
Then you hide behind your anger, to force a tale you want to sell…
I watch you stumble thru a story, that don’t add up, don’t add
up to me……. Can’t you see.

Bridge:
Don’t think that this is something new, there’s nothing that you could tell me.
To change the way I look at you, just trust the naked truth………
But you better think it over, I know you well, you better think it over……
