Info for Rock 'n Roll Blues
Luther Dickinson enters a new phase of his storied musical career with his rollicking and raw new solo album, Rock ‘n Roll Blues. From the propulsive beat and unbridled sound of opener Vandalize, to the insanely catchy Bar Band, it’s clear this is a unique chapter in the acclaimed Southern musician’s songbook. More informed by a youth spent listening to punk rock than the blues and boogie rock of his revered band North Mississippi Allstars, the record consists mostly of acoustic guitar, stand up bass and drums and although not punk in sound, it is in spirit and the DIY ethos. In essence, an autobiography set to music, the 10-track LP traces Luther’s journey from excitable teen to tour-van vet and offers a side of himself seldom seen before.
The son of the late great producer and musician Jim Dickinson, Luther made his recording debut at age 14 and has recorded with a who’s who of musicians including The Replacements, Beck, Jon Spencer, John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Mavis Staples, Ry Cooder and Patty Griffin. He is the lead guitarist and vocalist for the North Mississippi Allstars and widely known as both a talented musician and producer with four Grammy® nominations to prove it - three in the contemporary blues category and one in traditional folk.

was born in western Tennessee to parents Mary Dickinson and famed Memphis producer and musician Jim Dickinson. The family moved to the north Mississippi hill country in 1985, where Luther and his brother Cody grew up going to Jr Kimbrough’s juke joint and Otha Turner’s fife-n-drum goat BBQ picnics.
He and his brother, Cody, started the North Mississippi Allstars in 1996 playing Hill Country Blues inspired “Mississippi RocknRoll.” RL Burnside hired him to go on the road in 1997 and he has since toured all over the world from Russia to Japan to Australia.

He went on to record with the Replacements, Mojo Nixon, Beck, Toy Caldwell, Billy Lee Riley, Lucero, John Hiatt, Mavis Staples, Jon Spencer, Ry Cooder, Lucinda Williams, Spooner Oldham, Levon Helm, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, George Porter, and a host of others. In the mid 1990s, Luther produced Otha Turner’s albums Senegal to Senatobia and Everybody Hollerin’ Goat (named one of the top ten blues records of the 90s by Rolling Stone).
In 2011, as a member of the Americana Music Award house band Luther backed up Robert Plant, Patty Griffin, Gregg Allman, Amos Lee, Justin Townes Earle and many others.
As a member of the North Mississippi Allstars, South Memphis String Band and The Word, Luther has made himself widely known as both a talented musician and as a producer with four Grammy nominations to prove it- three in the contemporary blues catagory and one in traditional folk.
