Biography

HalfDozenDown, like many bands, had humble beginnings. When front man Eitan “Tunny” Gallant recruited some of his closest and musically gifted friends to help him compete in a local ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition, no one could have predicted that two years later the band would be an unstoppable force on the Guelph live music scene and beyond.

HalfDozenDown’s blend of socially conscious themes, hip-hop beats, funky bass-lines, reggae grooves, and jam-band resonance has attracted a large and dedicated fan-base, selling out shows in Guelph, Toronto, Peterborough and Mississauga. Over the past two years, the group has had the pleasure of performing with the likes of Matt York, God Made Me Funky, wordPeople, Two Left, and many other rising Canadian talents. Their November 2006 release, Numbers EP, has received much love and positive feedback from critics and audiences alike.

Much of this popularity may be due to the overwhelming feeling that HalfDozenDown is not just a band, but a collective of friends who truly enjoy performing together. Tunny is the charismatic and energetic MC, yet he doesn’t manage to steal the spotlight from the sweet vocals of Amanda Baine, or the practiced guitar work of Luke Nares. Drummer Dan “The Flava” LaFebvre provides the driving beat, while bassist Greg Gravelle brings the funk, and Paul Guerra jams it out on the keys. The end result is a live show that delivers an exceptional sound and a sweaty audience, every time.

After two years of diligent writing, touring, and recording under their belts, HalfDozenDown is still working to bring their message of environmentalism, activism, peace, and love to a larger audience.

Lyrics

Trust

Written By: Eitan 'Tunny' Gallant

Just imagine… good will happen. Reach our goal of all the children laughing… from you to me, in unity, I feel that love will conquer truthfully.

I want to spit tirelessly, spit the fire/ Inspiring words to take you higher/ Give you another perception, a bird’s eye view/ To rise above the deception, the world’s lies too.
Might you be interested in participating/ Making the world a safe haven, for old folks and for babies playing/ We can all realistically get involved/ Show that the fall is not inevitable
You want to ask something then it’s questionable/ There are more than just you and it’s contestable. It’s possible that something’s stoppable/ Don’t topple or fall; all you gotta do is just

Trust, just imagine. That good will happen. We’ll reach our goal of all the children laughing. Trust from you to me. Trust in unity. I feel that love will conquer truthfully.

Conquer it all, might conquer it slow/ Conquer what’s small, conquer what’s tall/ And conquer the globe.
Love is the conquest/ Love the concept/ It powers common sense, no contest/ No nonsense/ No matter what you’ll ace the pop test/ Let’s go grab some friends and hit the protest. Got to give back after all we’re so blessed/ If we don’t the world will remain so messed, so

Trust, just imagine. That good will happen. We’ll reach our goal of all the children laughing. Trust from you to me. Trust in unity. I feel that love will conquer truthfully.

Trust is the truth, it’s the reality of seeing/ Reality of interacting, the mentality of being. We can exist by ourselves, live by our wealth/ we need someone to make our bread/ To plow our fields and sew our wheat/ There’s no retreat, ill-treatment is so discrete/ There’s no belief with disrespect in our society/ Openly, respect is our priority.
Biologically we’re just one and the same/ Having fun in this game/ The difference, what’s your name/ Your mentality/ My personality, my dignity/ My character, defined by my identity/ What’s meant to be, often referred to as your destiny/ Better we remain strong/ I could be wrong, I’ve got the same song stuck in my head for five days long/ Don’t topple or fall; all you gotta do is just

Trust, just imagine. That good will happen. We’ll reach our goal of all the children laughing. Trust from you to me. Trust in unity. I feel that love will conquer truthfully.
