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.

Today, Scott Metzger shares "Waltz For Beverly" the second single and video from his debut album, Too Close To Reason, due March 4 on Royal Potato Family.

For those of us not on the East coast, Scott Metzger may be known as the guitarist alongside Tom Hamilton from JRAD or as the guy that stepped up to tour with CATS after Neal Casal’s passing.

Today, Scott Metzger announces his debut album, Too Close To Reason, due March 4 via RPF Records. The collection's first single, "Don't Be A Stranger," and an accompanying video is available now (listen/share). Comprised by 12 solo-acoustic guitar recordings of pastoral and ambient beauty, fans of Metzger's previous work with bands like Joe Russo's Almost Dead, WOLF!

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead kicked off their three night run at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ last Thursday to a packed house on a warm fall evening. This run was rescheduled from just over a year ago as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. Despite an injury to Tom Hamilton, the band delivered their unique take on the Grateful Dead without a hitch and made many new fans in the process.

Never miss a Sunday show. These words of wisdom are shared amongst jam band fans. Last night, the proverb lived up to its name as Joe Russo’s Almost Dead closed out a three-night run at the Westville Music Bowl in New Haven, CT on Memorial Day Weekend. There was nothing dry or warm about the conditions at this former outdoor tennis stadium, which only added fuel to the fire.

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead took the stage in New Haven, Connecticut on May 29th, 2021 for the second night of a sold out run at the brand-new Westville Music Bowl, and left fans feeling that euphoric feeling they had forgotten in the fifteen months since their last live show because of the Covid pandemic. This was all despite a furious wind, unseasonably cool temperatures and rain on Memorial Day weekend.
