Biography

The Meaning Behind It All

quix·ot·ic (kwk-stk) also quix·ot·i·cal (--kl)
adj.

1. Caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals; idealistic without regard to practicality.

Quixotic is a London, Ontario based band that originally came together in March of 1997.

Mike Schultz (guitar, lead vocals) and Jay Davis (drums, guitar, vocals) were originally part of a four-man band known as Spindrift. They recorded in Toronto at Kink Sound and were part of an indie compilation CD, rising indies. Spindirt opened for Rusty in London, the Killjoys in St. Thomas and they also played many battle of the bands.

Quixotic had been playing around London for well over 2 years when they decided to release their first full-length self-titled album in October 2001.
Quixotic was a weekly house band at Carey's Bar & Grille. They also have enjoyed performing at The Embassy Hotel, The Wippet Lounge, and The Shamrock & Thistle amongst other venues on a regular basis in the past. They also played at the London Music Hall with 6 other bands in November 2004.

Mike and Jay have been known to book acoustic gigs on occasion. But right now, they're about to get into the studio again to record and product their second CD.

Recently, a music editor from London This Week wrote an article announcing that Quixotic had a welcoming new sound for rock music.

They were also a Rock nominee for The London Music Awards in 2004 and again in 2006!

Lyrics

Shower Singing

Written By: Michael Schultz

And I tell them you're alright
But will they listen
You can always stay the night
With my creation
And they tell me you're uptight
I think they're right
You can always stay the night
If feels so right

I hear your thoughts pour down the drain
Shower singing again
And you feel my presence there
And you're so scared
I watch you pretend to sleep
But I'm not a freak
I think of the secrets I should keep
At least for another week

Trust you
I will believe you always
Hold you
I will hold you until you're dead
Carve you
Into someone you'll never be
Starve you
From the things that you really need

She speaks so softly with her tears
As she prays for future years
The voice inside her calms her down
Try not to worry live for now

Trust you
I will believe you always
Hold you
I will hold you until you're dead
Carve you
Into someone you'll never be
Starve you
From the things that you always need

Pretty Lace

Written By: Michael Schultz

Jaw dropped while you're in the blue, in the mood

Smell the poison in your food, she's in bloom

Stick the needle in a new place

And discover a new face

Get all dressed down in your pretty lace

Fingers crossed behind your mask, what to ask

Clean your ears out with a knife, it's your life

Stick the needle in a new place

And discover a new face

Get all dressed down in your pretty lace

I keep my eyes peeled in my sleep

The hole I'm stuck in is too deep

My mind's at rest only when you weep

For me I want to hear you speak

Much to warm in your dark tomb, so break loose

Tell a friend to cut the gnoose, smack the juice

Stick the needle in a new place

And discover a new face

Get all dressed down in your pretty lace

In your pretty lace

In your pretty lace

I keep my eyes peeled in my sleep

The hole I'm stuck in is too deep

My mind's at rest only when you weep

To me I want for you speak

I keep my eyes peeled in my sleep

The hole I'm stuck in is too deep

My mind's at rest only when you weep

To me I want for you speak



Angel

Written By: Michael Schultz

I made the worst mistake last night
One that could ruin my whole life
I pray to her my soul she'll take
Realistic dreams I hate to wake

Love, trust and loyalty
Those three things I couldn't give
But now you, you are the life
The life that I want to live

I think of you
Every day and
I dream of you
Every night

Please forgive the past
Now that I know, I know that we'll last
Always and forever in my eyes
The love for an angel never dies

I think of you
Every day and
I dream of you
Every night
I think of you
Every day and
I dream of you
Every night
