“Jon Fickes is a talented troubadour: the rusty voice, the sincere delivery, the epic lyrics, piercing harmonica. On a rainy summer night, late slot, no other writer cuts straight into the loneliness of the patrons. Hell, Brooklyn folk god Alex Lowry tips him a Lincoln: "This guy is good...really good, actually." Now, I know everyone's looking for the next Dylan wrapped up in the new sound. It's on nights like this, listening to singers like Fickes, that I wonder what's wrong with the old sound? And I'm not talking old man talk; the 60s came and went years before I was born. But I'm an aspiring scholar of music and have enough of those old records to know that kicking out the picking isn't as easy at it seems. Fickes understands the form and executes it effectively. He strikes me as a songwriter in Act I. His material is always moving and often sounds like it's being channeled from old folk standards. I'm excited to hear Act II. Epic song-writing mofo, he is.”
