Default Free UK Number

anyone know how I can obtain a UK number here in the USA.

I have seen some sites but they are too expensive. anything like google voice in the UK would be great

Not free, but Swytch works well. You can port a UK number or obtain a new one for £5 + VAT = £6 per month.

You can sign up to Sipgate (www.sipgate.co.uk) which is free but you need a UK address to receive a code by mail to activate the account - plus you need to use a UK VPN when signing up or you'll be given an 05 number rather than a "normal" UK landline prefix.
