Biography

Oso Closo proves that everything really is bigger in Texas. Their lush string arrangements and massive guitar solos are almost as big as burly front man Adrian Hulet’s beard. Hulet’s soulful vocals and piano are assisted by four alums of the renowned University of North Texas jazz program. The jazz tendencies allow a freedom and spontaneity that one wouldn’t expect from a typical rock band.

“Oso Closo is remarkable. These people can write, arrange, sing and play in a league that only a few get to - with a lot of hard work and talent. Look, I’m not a big progressive rock guy, being the rockabilly “whatever it is that I am” type, but I do know, this is a group that can put together all of the skills of all of the greatest prog-rock types from the past, and make them into something great for the future. Their skills blow me away. I especially like the sound of Adrian’s voice and how the guitars can sometimes go off into the land of Brian May from “Queen”. It’s all kind of a mind blower. Check ‘em out.” – Jim Heath, aka The Reverend Horton Heat

“On their debut album, Rest, the band makes even the most complicated songs sound easy. The technicality of 7/8 time signatures (“Reverend”) and lightning-fast guitar arpeggiations (“The Friendship Song”) flow effortlessly when played by a group of such talented, degreed musicians.
