Toronto-based Alternative Rock band.
Closer to Zero, consisting of Chris Young, Nick Cropley, Paolo Ciampini, and Douglas Green are a high school friendship turned into an Alternative Rock project. Sharing similar tastes in music and playing all necessary instruments to form a band, Closer to Zero is since then known to “love to be loud”. All four members contributing the musical environment of their act, the collaborative effort leaves a lasting impression wherever they perform.
With their last album ‘Think for Yourself’, Closer to Zero focuses on the importance of independent thought. With many areas in the world telling the public who to listen to and how we should live our lives, the band addresses where we lose part of our independence and function as a result of someone else’s ideology. “This touches upon multiple areas in life like relationships, healthy and abusive; depression and anxiety; and overcoming our own self-doubts and thinking freely. This album offers the message to not fear our own thoughts and speak our minds.”
