“Town Without Soul” is the kind of song that not only tells a story, but it tells it in a way that makes you feel like a little kid by the bonfire, with eyes wide open and ears soaking up the poetic wisdom of the storyteller. In other words, it’s a folk song in every sense of the word.
It’s no wonder that Fred Wickham has drawn comparisons with folk legends like Dylan and Cash. In a genre that is so easy to mimic with gimmicky, cheesy songs that tick a few superficial boxes, Wickham clearly lives and breathes it. “Town Without Soul” is permeated with his lighthearted folk authenticity – it oozes from his raw, poetic lines, unadulterated singing, and the signature for the genre slide guitars that sound like a summer childhood memory.
And there’s more where “Town Without Soul” came from – in the eponymous album.
