NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS
NEW ALBUM ‘Prayer for Peace’ featuring the tracks ‘Prayer For Peace’; ‘You Got To Move’; Miss Maybelle
IMPACTING MAY 8

North Mississippi Allstars are back with PRAYER FOR PEACE, and couldn’t we all use one of those right about now? Founded in 1996 by brothers Luther (guitar and vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, piano, synth bass, programming and vocals), the now venerable band are entering their third decade with perhaps the most vital album of their career. Self Produced by the three time Grammy Nominated Dickenson brothers PRAYER FOR PEACE was recorded in studios across America during North Mississippi Allstars’ 2016 tour, and sees the Dickinsons weaving their bred-to- the-bone musical sensibility with unstoppable energy, rhythmic reinvention, and a potent message of positivity, family, and hope.

Special guests on the album include bassist Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band, Dead & Company), Graeme Lesh (Midnight North, The Terrapin Family Band), vocalists Sharisse Norman and Danielle Nicole, bassist Dominic Davis (Jack White), and singer/fife player Shardé Thomas, daughter of Mississippi blues giant Otha Turner.

“The Allstars’ music is intricate and informed, but it also romps, stomps and quickens your pulse.” -Washington Post

“Deep roots,improvising valor and live-Cream brawn come easily to this trio.”
-David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“The North Mississippi Allstars crank out soulful, hard-driving Southern rock…for brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, it’s not just rock for rock’s sake. They dig deep for the roots of the music they’re passionate about.” -NPR

“The North Mississippi Allstars have been standard-bearers of sorts since they released their first album in 2000, keeping alive an endangered blues tradition from the hill country of the state that lent its name to Luther and Cody Dickinson’s band. It’s a role they take seriously.”
-Wall St Journal
