April 14 – Limited Availability 

Jacob Metcalf

“Fjord”

Note: There is a limited number of tickets available to this event.  First come, first served at the door.

North Texas musician Jacob Metcalf released his first full-length solo effort, Fjord, in early winter 2016.  The result is an often-breathtaking collection of indie-folk compositions that range from wistful, unhurried ballads to swirling, majestic orchestrations, sometimes within the same song, and all set to Metcalf’s warm, inviting vocals and non-linear story-telling. “The album is about great divides,” Metcalf explains. “Fjord is about splintered people living in a fractured age.”

 

The material for the record was written over the last decade on five continents (Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America). It was during the last few years that 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 bakery and music teaching jobs to make this album.

 

Wheeler Sparks will open at 7:15. Jacob describes his friend as a thoughtful songwriter and caring human being.  Jacob will start his performance at 7:40.
