Arkansas native actor and musician Ben Dickey gained notoriety for his portrayal of Blaze Foley in 2018 biopic Blaze. Though the role earned Dickey a lot of positive buzz, this is not his first rodeo, with a debut LP released in 2016. Dickey’s debut, Sexy Birds and Salt Water Classics is to be followed by sophomore release A Glimmer On The Outskirts, out March 8th. With A Glimmer On The Outskirts, Dickey infuses folk and country inspired songs with a modern pop edge to create a sound all his own. The new album is released on SexHawkeBlack Records, an Austin-based offshoot of Dualtone founded by the minds behind Blaze, Charlie Sexton, Ethan Hawke and Blaze executive producer Louis Black. Find live recordings of the Studio 1A After Hours session in the player below, or catch Ben Dickey’s free in-store album release at Waterloo Records, Friday March 8th.
