The Close is an emerging 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. Amazing musicians, Kenny Sayne (lead guitar), Dylan Stansberry (drums) Cary Stone (acoustic guitar) and Mikel Urdy (percussion), complete the band.
The Close was featured on Roots Radio, WMOT’s Finally Friday Broadcast live from 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN, and the television series, The Southern Music Showcase 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.
The Close is releasing a full length album this fall.
