Scott Metzger 'Too Close To Reason' Out Today

Article Contributed by The Royal Pota… | Published on Friday, March 4, 2022

It's our great honor to bring you Scott Metzger's debut solo album, Too Close To Reason. Over a 20-plus year career, Scott has made a name for himself on the live music scene. He's one of two guitarists/vocalists in Joe Russo's Almost Dead, while he's collaborated with the likes of Phil Lesh, Nels Cline and John Scofield, to name but a few. And while he's fronted his own bands—most notably WOLF!, The Showdown Kids and RANA—he's never stepped out with his own album until now. A 12-track collection of pastoral and reflective acoustic guitar recordings, Too Close To Reason falls squarely in the tradition of the finest work by artists both classic and modern like John Fahey, Bert Jansch, Julian Lage, William Tyler and Leo Kottke.

Too Close To Reason is out today wherever you stream/download music, as well as, on 180-gram classic black vinyl. The first LP pressing has sold out, but we'll have more in stock on March 21 and immediately begin shipping.
