North Mississippi Allstars

Active since:

A forgotten roll of film inspired a musical accompaniment, the North Mississippi Allstars’ new record Up and Rolling. Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The album captures the communal spirit upon which the band was founded. In 1996, a photographer from Texas, Wyatt McSpadden, traveled to North Mississippi looking to photograph local musicians. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson had grown up just south of Memphis and cut their teeth playing experimental rock & roll together, as well as the roots repertoire pioneered by their father, Jim Dickinson, a legendary producer (Big Star, the Replacements) and session player (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan)

Duwayne Burnside: Acoustic Burnside

Read "Acoustic Burnside" reviewed by Doug Collette


By dint of his lineage and his previous collaborations, Duwayne Burnside had something of a name for himself prior to the release of Acoustic Burnside. He is the son of R.L. Burnside, icon of Mississippi Hill Country music, and the offspring was an early member of the like-minded North Mississippi Allstars, founded and fronted by Luther ...

Amy Helm: What The Flood Leaves Behind

Read "What The Flood Leaves Behind" reviewed by Doug Collette


Amy Helm possesses all the inner direction, motivation and independence of her father, Levon, the drummer and vocalist for The Band. As evidence of those inherent character traits, she projects her personality with no traces of self-consciousness not only in her collaborations--Sisters of the Strawberry Moon's Solstice (New West Records, 2019), produced by the North Mississippi ...

New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Doug Collette


The New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers Volume 2 is replete with the same instinctual camaraderie and musicianly savvy as its predecessor. Likewise culled from sessions recorded in 2007, this sequel is decidedly not comprised of mere leftovers or otherwise sub-par tracks originally left unreleased. On the contrary, the alternately upbeat and reflective atmosphere reaffirms the ...

Ghalia Volt: One Woman Band

Read "One Woman Band" reviewed by Doug Collette


As pictured on the cover of One Woman Band, songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ghalia Volt radiates such a commanding presence that it's hard not to imagine the array of musical instruments displayed alongside her coming to life all on their own. In a very real sense, though, that's exactly what the Brussels Belgium-born blues-woman accomplishes on this third album ...

Gina Sicilia: Love Me Madly

Read "Love Me Madly" reviewed by Doug Collette


It is not to disparage Gina Sicilia in any way to say that she has come of age with her ninth album, Love Me Madly. Produced by North Mississippi Allstars' Cody Dickinson and prominently featuring Luther Dickinson, his sibling and co-founder of that group, the record carries some cosmetic similarities to the vintage sound of Philadelphia ...

Colin Linden & Luther Dickinson: Amour

Read "Amour" reviewed by Doug Collette


On Amour, Colin Linden (of Blackie & The Rodeo Kings) and Luther Dickinson (from North Mississippi Allstars) offer a collaborative paean to romantic love that is not entirely sentimental. Even on such an otherwise earnest effort, there is an inherent danger that might come across as campy, but the two guitarists/vocalists demonstrate an abiding loyalty to ...
