Thompson Faulk - While the World Blows Up

This review was originally published in July of 2018.

This is a fine example of modern Americana. There's the gospel piano, the slide guitar, and the straight rock beat; the hand claps, the fast pulse: it's a jumpy number with an immediate, heartland-singalong folksiness.

Thompson Faulk keeps up the front-porch stomp and weaves in some aww-shucks about putting it all on the line for your lady. The result is an all-American pop spin with some raspy vocals that just might get those cowgirls onto the dance floor.

Thompson Faulk is a singer-songwriter from Charleston, South Carolina. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
