Close to Forever is a collective of some of Australia’s most acclaimed and talented musicians.
Dale Caldwell

Ben Fink
– guitars, vocals (Whitlams, Lior, Stiff Gins, Christa Hughes)
Danny Heifetz

Sam Golding
– horns (Mara Big Band, Sousaphonics, Tango Saloon) 
Chris Abrahams

Their sound has been described as a searing and haunting listening experience, a beautiful mix of rich vocal harmony with luscious arrangements.
The band’s musical style is not easily categorised featuring elements of artpop, jazz, rock, indie and alt-folk.
Featuring original works and cherry-picked material from master song crafters such as PJ Harvey, Nina Simone, Elvis Costello and Don McGlashan, they’ve created their own distinctive sound centred around close vocal harmony, hypnotic rhythms, and ethereal sonic landscapes.
Since their formation they have been regular sell out favourites at Venue 505, Camelot Lounge, Django Bar and the Great Club in Sydney. 

Close to Forever are thrilled to be bringing this astonishing troupe of musicians to perform in intimate format in Katoomba, sharing the sonic beauty that is their latest album “Hearts and Desire” and much more. 
The show will also be accompanied by visual projection elements.
