North Mississippi Allstars has become one of the most consistently compelling American bands of its time. They are fluent in rock, blues, funk, gospel, hippie jams, and more and have the ability to meld and shape all these sounds into something original and righteous. Set Sail is a super effort from one of the most stand up American bands of the last 30 years. You are going to want it in rotation right away, raves ROCK AND BLUES MUSE (Set Sail Album Review).
4x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated & Blues Music Award-Winning Blues Rock Band NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS recorded 12 albums over 25 years. As legend has it, Luther (Guitar, Vocals) & Cody Dickinson (Drums, Keys, Vocals) started the band in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who shared a local repertoire & 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 (Bass) & Lamar Williams, JR. (Vocals). During the Allman Betts Band Family Revival, the Dickinson's first linked up with Lamar, son of the Allman Brothers Bassist Lamar Williams, Sr., becoming fast friends & collaborators and eventually paving the way for 'Set Sail' - their new album. GRAMMY® Nominations for "Best Contemporary Blues Album" include 'Shake Hands With Shorty' (2000); '51 Phantom' (2002); 'Electric Blue Watermelon' (2005); 'Up and Rolling' (2020).
