In 23 last years, the North Mississippi Allstars have released ten studio albums. Three of them earned Blues Album of the Year nominations at the Grammys.
More importantly, the band played countless shows in front of avid crowds, touring alongside Robert Plant, Patty Griffin, Mavis Staples and John Hiatt, among many others.
As Cody Dickinson puts it, North Mississippi Allstars “is all inclusive. Everyone is invited, the bar is always open and drinks are on the house. But it’s important to us that we stay true to the vision of Hill Country music. There is incredible talent here in North Mississippi, so I’m always learning. The best thing about being in this band this long is developing a sound and identity that is unique. That’s truly a blessing, so we do our best to keep the music honest.”
Fans of the Allman Brothers, however, should take note. Cody’s brother Luther can play like the reincarnation of Duane.
