Artist Matthew Wolcott has enlisted a first-team production group for his original material, giving it a rich, expert vibe. While his melodies are not super-memorable, Wolcott is a storyteller with an eye for authentic imagery that makes his sketches of small-town life seem quite authentic and highly relatable, perhaps well-suited for placement in a film or TV show. Each song, whether it’s the Jackson Brown flavored “Western Lights,” the mournful “Olde Town Blues” or “Dixie’s Waltz” with its pleasantly surprising trumpet solos, offer deft production that captures an honest voice, a singer-songwriter who knows his stories’ terrain and understands the sad, lonesome characters who populate it.
