Closer to You
Anton Commissaris, a talented solo artist hailing from Menlo Park, California, has released his latest single, “Closer To You.” With a song that could be comfortably covered by either Frank Sinatra or Stevie Wonder,
Commissaris sets the stage for the story of a man who is determined to get closer to a lovely woman of his infatuation.

This song is for all the men who refuse to give up on their dreams of romance with a special woman; for those who believe that romantic resolve will win the day.
