The Close is an acoustic Americana vocal trio based in Nashville, TN. Shannon Walker, Lori J Rowton and James Mckinney are three lead singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists whose blend of genres and styles wrap around intricate three part harmonies reminiscent of The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, CSNY and other harmony focused bands made of multiple writers. Their stellar and hauntingly beautiful harmonies blend together Americana/Contemporary Folk/Country with a commercial Pop sensibility. Currently, they are touring heavily to promote their debut Americana EP release, Hello Heart, available now.
The Close was most recently featured on Roots Radio, WMOT’s Finally Friday Broadcast live from 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN, and will be featured on the upcoming television series, The Southern Music Showcase that airs on BLTV. In 2020, The Close was asked by Victor Records, famed maker of the Victrola Record Player from Victor/RCA Records, to record a live project, “Live from Victor Records” at Victor recording studios in Camden, New Jersey, to be released Spring 2021. Victor reached out to The Close because of their amazing blend of harmonies and vocal arrangements. Victor created a custom “The Close” record player available for a limited time. The Close will also release a full length album in early 2021.
