Barry James Hickey began his entertainment career as a back-up singer to an Elvis impersonator in Chicago before forming his first band called Outer Drive. It didn't last long. Discotheques arrived and swept away the live band scene.
Hickey moved to Colorado, performing in musical theater, melodramas and television commercials for a couple of years before forming his next band - The Acapulco Road Show, a mix of Country, Top 40 and Rock 'n Roll.
After graduating from the University of Colorado with a Communications degree Hickey literally flipped a coin to determine his future. Heads for Los Angeles, tails for Nashville. The coin landed heads. Hickey spent his first year delivering singing telegrams until he landed the leading role in the feature film Revenge of the Stolen Stars.
Other movies followed. For the next decade he bounced between his love of music, acting and writing. He often sang at the world famous Palomino in North Hollywood. He frequented Bakersfield, California, singing with a handful of country musicians who toured with Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.
Hickey cut several music demos and drove to Nashville, knocking on the doors of country music agents, managers and labels before he ran out of money and returned to Los Angeles.
For the next few years he focused on songwriting, screenplays and independent film production with long stints as an executive assistant at CBS Television and Walt Disney Studios to studio heads.
After 15 years of living in Hollywood, Hickey returned to Colorado after a disastrous experience starring in a film in India. He taught high school English, dabbled in real estate, worked at an auto dealership in sales and finance, managed a book publishing company and performed legal work for attorneys.
As a novelist, Hickey's works include The Five Pearls, Chasing God's River, The Glass Fence, Waking Purgatory and The Water Lawyer. Just finished the first draft for The Pendragon Prophecy. Out to agents next.
