Jacob Metcalf is a postmodern composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Dallas, Texas, recognized for his intricate guitar work and understated lyricism.
Metcalf's debut album Fjord (2016) received pleasant responses from the international press community and music lovers alike for its breathtaking collection of art-folk compositions. The songs therein range from wistful, unhurried ballads to swirling, majestic orchestrations, sometimes within the same song, and all set to Metcalf’s inviting vocals and non-linear story-telling. Highlighting eastern sounds and western orchestra, the album reads like a love letter to all humanity, for splintered people living in a fractured age.
The material for Fjord was pulled from hand-scrawled journals written over a decade and spanning five continents (Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America). More recently, Metcalf lived out of his car and inside a four foot crawl space between a vintage store and loft apartments in order to save enough from his day jobs to complete the album. Recorded in Austin, Ft. Worth and Dallas with more than 30 talented musician friends, the singer-songwriter and band saw every dive, theater and city street as the ideal stage to prep the songs before further dressing the arrangements in the studio.
Metcalf is writing album number two. Stay tuned.
