Biography

Generally speaking, one might assume that a band whose name originated from a song by jazz pianist Bill Evans wouldn't know a thing about how to rock. However, Toronto band Turn Off the Stars have been lighting up the stage, winning over crowds and recording a debut album in an effort to prove otherwise.

Turn Off the Stars began in 1998 at Western University in London, Ontario. Lead singer Mike Walker and his brother, guitarist Andrew Walker formed an acoustic duo and performed shows on campus - but deep down they knew something was missing...or someone. Enter drummer Max Kennedy. With the 3 of them together, their passion for rock became too strong to ignore and Turn Off the Stars was born.

With the release of their debut album, "Everything Is OK", Turn Off the Stars are ready to conquer the nation with their lush, atmospheric rock songs. Despite their lofty aspirations, be rest assured that any success which may befall Turn Off the Stars will not go to their collective heads.

We want to stay true to who we are and remember where we came from," says guitarist Andrew Walker, "we don't want to be a band that forgets that." Songs such as "Please" and "Oblivious" demonstrate how things have fallen into place musically for Turn Off the Stars. The guitar-based melodies and beautiful, poignant lyrics showcased on "Everything Is OK", represent a band that is wise beyond its years...and they've barely scratched the surface.

Lyrics

Please

Written By: music by Turn Off The Stars, words by M.Walker

Wait, what a beautiful place
Sun breaking through to my face
My face, my face
Please, get me off of my knees
I’m just begging you please
Please, please

I’ll be taking you right by the hand
I know that you don’t understand

Break, you’re breaking on through the day
Helping me finding my way
The way, the way
Time, is now on my side
My side, my side

I’ll be taking you right by the hand
I know that you don’t understand

Please... I’ll be checking out
Please... I’ll be checking out

Falling Into You

Written By: music by Turn Off The Stars, words by M. Walker, A.Walker

Here I am saved by grace
But everything has been misplaced
Hold me close, don’t ever let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go

This time I’m falling into you
This time I’m falling into you

You come to me like a summer’s breeze
Now I’ve fallen on my knees
Hold me close, don’t ever let me go
I’ll climb across, I won’t look down
So afraid to hit the ground
Could you really catch me when I fall
When I fall, When I fall

This time I’m falling into you
This time I’m falling into you
