Album Notes
Paul Metsa is a legendary singer-songwriter and musician from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since 1984, Metsa has released 11 original projects on Raven Records, and won eight Minnesota Music Awards. The Utne Reader called Metsa "Springsteen with a Midwestern twang." He has also received glowing reviews in Spin, Billboard, Cashbox, Relix, and CMJ. National Public Radio called Metsa "America's answer to Billy Bragg."
The release of Texas in the Twilight, from a recently discovered session, will no doubt once again raise Metsa's profile in the consciousness of those that love what the Austin Chronicle called "American Street Poetry."
Texas in the Twilight came about when Paul was looking for something to release in conjunction with his 25th anniversary of playing and recording. Searching through his vault, he discovered a cassette tape he had forgotten existed. Recorded in Austin, Texas, in 1990, for legendary producer Bob Johnston, Texas in the Twilight was recorded in a two-hour session direct to cassette. All the songs were recorded as first takes and in the order they appear on the CD. The tape that Paul found is not only the master, but the only copy ever made.
With 15 powerful tracks, Texas in the Twilight features highly charged political content and poetry as well as tales of lost and found love. Even though it was recorded fourteen years ago, the songs resonate just as well, if not more, in today's world. Metsa's galloping guitar and provocative vocals will have fans wondering why it has taken him so long to put out a completely acoustic solo album.
