The Last Remaining Payphone in L.A.

by Logan Metz

Steeped in bittersweet nostalgia for a bygone era, Metz's debut album ranges from jazz and soul to folk, but it's all marked by characteristically clever chord changes, smoke-damaged vocals, a poignant twinkle of self-awareness, and sublime lyrical wit.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded live in three days flat, "The Last Remaining Payphone in L.A." marks Logan Metz's formal departure from teaching high school English to a career in music. His writing spans genres, from jazz and soul to folk, but it's all marked by characteristically clever chord changes, a poignant twinkle of self-awareness, and sublime lyrical wit. His vocals have been described as participating in the same whiskey-soaked, smoke-damaged tradition of Tom Waits, and his stage persona lies somewhere between Columbo and a Baptist preacher. Steeped in bittersweet nostalgia for the sounds and stories of a bygone era, Metz's music is liable to make you laugh out loud and choke back tears within ten seconds of the same song.

For five years Metz worked as a Music and English teacher in L.A., all the while touring in multiple bands on multiple instruments. He has performed everywhere from backwoods biker rallies to Walt Disney Concert Hall, with the likes of Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Kris Kristofferson, and Bob Weir. In 2015 he earned a masters degree from the University of Chicago (his thesis, a full-length 60’s-rock opera adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello), and decided soon after to call Chicago home.
