Luther Dickinson (Guitar, Vocals) and his brother Cody Dickinson (Drums, Keys, Vocals) started the NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS in 1996. Luther's wide-ranging guitar style features jazz riffs, psychedelic sounds, and soulful slide. Drummer and multi-instrumentalist Cody draws on roots music, rock, jazz, and other styles to create rhythms that propel the band's sounds and move it forward. Their two aesthetics combine to create the band's unique style, "Primitive Modernism," melding the new and the old, traditional and futuristic, as well as crafted lyrics and improvisational music. Over the years, the lineup shifted by design, and each subsequent record offered up a different combination of collaborators. In 2018, North Mississippi Allstars were Nominated for "Band of the Year" at the Blues Music Awards.
Following 2019's album Up and Rolling, which received a GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of "Best Contemporary Blues Album," their 2022 album Set Sail continues the band's tradition of creating roots music that displays remarkable variety. The record sizzles with hard yet understated groove-grown folk music. This time around, they mined the talents of Jesse Williams (Bass) and Lamar Williams, Jr. (Vocals). During the Allman Betts Band Family Revival, the Dickinson's first linked up with Lamar, son of the Allman Brothers Bassist Lamar Williams, Sr., becoming fast friends and collaborators and eventually paving the way for Set Sail (2022) – which received rave reviews!
The Dickinson brothers have recorded and toured with Mavis Staples, Charlie Musslewhite, John Hiatt, Robert Plant, G Love, Jon Spencer, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Los Lobos, and the Black Crowes, among others.
