ZAZA MUSIC PRESENTS: NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS
Grammy Award nominees and Southern rock/blues royalty, Luther and Cody Dickinson are the genuine rock’n’ roll deal.
North Mississippi Allstars are back with new album Prayer for Peace. 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 second decade with what is unquestionably the most vital album of their brilliant career. Released by Sony Legacy, Prayer for Peace sees North Mississippi Allstars continuing to think globally following 2013’s Earth-shaking World Boogie is Coming. That album, the band’s seventh studio recording, proved the planetary sensation its title promised, with The Guardian simply declaring it the North Mississippi Allstars’ ‘best yet’.
Now North Mississippi Allstars weave their bred-to-the-bone musical sensibility with a potent message of positivity, inclusion, family, and hope. As ever, songs like the powerhouse title track and You Got To Move – the latter featuring accompaniment from Hill Country Blues guitar hero Kenny Brown and award-winning singer/bassist Danielle Nicole – pay homage to the band’s long lineage of musical heroes, celebrating the blues’ extraordinary legacy while reshaping and pushing it into contemporary relevance with fatback funk, slippery soul, and pure unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll.
