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 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.
The majority of PRAYER FOR PEACE was recorded at Memphis’ famed Royal
Studios with the great Boo Mitchell behind the board. The hard-touring band also
recorded as they traveled the country, lighting up studios in St. Louis, Kansas
City, New Orleans, Brooklyn, Austin, and of course, their legendary father Jim
Dickinson’s Zebra Ranch in the Allstars’ own Hernando, MS. A number of old
friends join the congregation, among them bassist Oteil Burbridge (‪Allman
Brothers Band, Dead & Company), Graeme Lesh (Midnight North, The Terrapin
Family Band), vocalist Sharisse Norman, bassist Dominic Davis (‪Jack White),
and singer/fife player ‪Shardé Thomas, daughter of Mississippi blues giant Otha
Turner. Simultaneously master curators, expert revivalists and forward-thinking
visionaries, the Dickinson brothers have crafted their most daringly creative and
provocatively topical collection to date. PRAYER FOR PEACE stands tall as yet
another milestone marking North Mississippi Allstars own unique place in the
American musical tradition.
