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 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 all splintered people living in a fractured age.

Metcalf is writing album number 2, Monitors, slated for release in summer 2019.
