Giveaway Info

Ben Dickey got his first guitar at age ten from his grandfather. "He was a magical fellow, and his guitar is too, so I wanted to be magic too," he said as his interest for music increased. Dickey grew up in Little Rock Arkansas and began touring at age eighteen. Not only is he a musician, but he's also an actor, who has won a Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize for Dramatic Achievement in Acting. He had the opportunity to work with one of his heroes, guitarist Charlie Sexton, while filming Blaze, Ethan Hawke's biopic.

His solo album, A Glimmer on the Outskirts was produced by Sexton.

A Glimmer on the Outskirts is Dickey's second album that was a result of several months of writing in the middle of his post-Blaze funk. He spent time in different bands making country-rock music, but this album has channeled the feeling of 90's era Tom Petty. "Monstrous Moonshine" is influenced partly by his nephew and "the hope of someone looking out for you". This album marks a huge professional point in Dickey's life as his first previous one was recorded on days off from his job as a sous-chef.
