Jacob Metcalf is a postmodern composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Dallas, Texas. Metcalf's debut album Fjord (2016) received positive responses from the international press community and music lovers alike for its art-folk compositions. The eleven song collection ranges 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, Fjord reads like a love letter to humanity, for splintered people living in a fractured age.
Hear Fjord in its entirety on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Bandcamp, Youtube, 180 gram vinyl, CD, and more.
Metcalf is writing album number 2, Monitors, slated for release in summer 2020.
