Giveaway Info

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 as musicians. True as always to the blues tradition, North Mississippi Allstars use the basic structures taught to them as the starting point for improvisation and contemporary interpretation, an approach that inextricably links them to a long line of American visionary artists like the Grateful Dead. Their music sees the Dickinsons advance as a true artistic partnership, striking a wholly democratic balance between Luther's raw, organic aesthetic and Cody's passion for electronics and programming.

PRAYER FOR PEACE shows the Dickinsons weaving their bred-to-the-bone musical sensibility with unstoppable energy, rhythmic reinvention, and a potent message of positivity, family, and hope. As ever, songs like R.L. Burnside's "Long Haired Doney" and the impassioned title track pay homage to the country blues legacy while simultaneously pushing it into contemporary relevance with fatback funk, electronic innovation, slippery soul, and pure unadulterated rock 'n' roll. Where PRAYER FOR PEACE truly builds upon the repertoire is with a number of Luther-penned originals. "Prayer for Peace" is among North Mississippi Allstars' most immediate new songs, a beat-crazy appeal for unity that like the band itself stands as a righteous celebration of multiculturalism, inclusion, and compassion.
