North Mississippi All-Stars

Nothing runs deeper than family ties. Brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters
understand one another at the purest level. When families rally around music, they speak this
oft-unspoken bond aloud and into existence. After 25 years, twelve albums, four GRAMMY®
Award nominations, and sold out shows everywhere, North Mississippi Allstars open up their
world once again on their thirteenth album, Set Sail [New West Records], welcoming other
family (by blood and by the road) into the fold. As legend has it, Luther and Cody Dickinson
started the band in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who
shared a local repertoire and regional style. Over the years, the lineup shifted by design, and
each subsequent record offered up a different combination of collaborators. This time around,
they mined the talents of Jesse Williams on bass and Lamar Williams, JR. on vocals. During the
Allman Betts Band Family Revival, the Dickinsons first linked up with Lamar, son of the Allman
Brothers bassist Lamar Williams, Sr., becoming fast friends and collaborators and eventually
paving the way for Set Sail.
“The chemistry we have with this lineup is powerful,” observes Luther. “We are all
second-generation musicians and share a telepathic, relaxed ease about creating and
performing. I believe music is a form of communion with our loved ones and conjuring this vibe
with members of musical families can be inspirational. Lamar and I are like-minded. I’ve never
had the pleasure of working with a singing partner like Lamar. He has a true-blue quality in his
musicality that will pull you in and break your heart. At the same time, Jesse grew up playing
music with his brothers and his father—as did we. He plays like a sibling. We recorded the
album fresh off the road and captured the energy we had worked up with him. I’m drawn to
musical families, regardless of style. Playing with second- or third-generation players allows us
an easy unspoken musical dialog. It’s not a big thing; it’s just what we do. We never had to figure
out what it means and takes to be a musician. We all inherently know.
