Close Proximity, a group based in Birmingham, AL, has been playing the Southeast US for the past five years. For much of that time, they have been covering songs ranging from Chuck Berry to Buckcherry in nightclubs and fraternity parties to attract a larger audience. However, they always play their original music in between the others with the same high energy and conviction. This seems to be a good formula for the guys, since many listeners can't always seem to decipher the originals from the covers. With that being said, you will hear many of their diverse musical influences on their debut album 'No Assistance', including blues, classic rock, folk, country and metal. For example, you'll hear Southern Rock stylings in 'Let Me', 'Nomad' & 'Leave it on the Wayside', to the modern-day rock sounds of 'Wastin' Time' & 'Nothing Left to Give'. Mix these and the rest of the tracks with dynamics, varying moods, strong vocals, guitar leads & beats, you have the ingredients for a rock & roll album that is sure to please.
