Atlanta Folksinger Ben Trickey Releasing Third LP, Choke & Croon

Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Ben Trickey will celebrate the release of his new LP, Choke & Croon, with a show at The EARL in the city’s East Atlanta Village district on Thursday, July 7th.

The LP follows two previous albums – Rising Waters and Come On, Hold On – and a series of 45s from Trickey, each coupling original tunes with a well-chosen cover song. An original track from one of those singles, “Alabama,” reappears in a different version on Choke & Croon.

With his forlorn, raspy delivery and plainspoken, evocative songs that harken back to some of country and folk music’s best storytellers, Trickey is one of Atlanta’s more understated and poignant song-spinners.
