Close Talker is an indie rock band that has made great strides in a short period of time: two commercial releases and numerous tours throughout North America and Europe, garnering international attention from talent buyers and critically acclaimed publications. Close Talker is a band born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, made up of childhood friends Will Quiring, Matthew Kopperud, and Christopher Morien. Originating in 2012, and since becoming a trio in the summer of 2015, the band has now honed their craft, creating a vast and iconic sound that is turning heads and drawing crowds around the world. Each year, Close Talker’s artistic integrity and success grows, finding an enthusiastic response from fans and critics alike. In 2017 alone, Close Talker performed over 100 shows across North America and Europe, including showcases at SXSW and Reeperbahn Festival.
Close Talker released their latest album ‘Lens’, via Nevado Music (worldwide) and DevilDuck Records (EUR) in April of 2017. The album was well received by listeners and fans as well as international publications, such as NPR and Billboard Magazine. Close Talker received high praise and plays on NPR’s World Café, who stated the song ‘Afterthought’ is “as intimate as it is earnest... it’s expansive and as a result, an invitation to lean right in.” Close Talker forthcoming record "How Do We Stay Here?", showcases a new musical direction for the band, introducing deeper lyrical performances and beauty in the surrounding instrumentation. Close Talker’s music is both captivating and liberating and allows listeners to stop, take a breath, and appreciate the present while fighting to remain in it.
