First appearing with L.A.’s short-lived The Spoilers, Hickey self-released his first two solo records, Frames of Mind, Boundaries of Time and Looking for Anything in the middle ‘80s. These generated college radio buzz, and his next project, Show of Hands, a neo- Peter, Paul & Mary collaboration with Randall Kirsch and LuAnn Olson, caught the attention of Tracy Chapman producer David Kershenbaum and resulted in an eponymous album released by I.R.S. Records in 1988. Disagreements within the band left a follow-up album on the shelf (finally released as Secondly in 2013). Hickey’s louder folk-rock collaboration with Sally Dworsky and Andy Kamman, Uma, toured throughout the middle ‘90s and released the excellent Fare Well on R.E.M. producer Don Gehman’s MCA subsidiary Refuge in 1997. The new millennium has seen Release, Razzmatazz, and now, Love Away quietly appearing via Work-fire Recordings. -Ed Whitelock, Pop Matters
