As a founding member of North Mississippi Allstars, Cody has earned three Grammy nominations and a recent number one record on the billboard blues chart.

Cody Dickinson is what one might call an artistic entrepreneur in the fields of music and film. Over the course of his career Cody has contributed to several major motion picture soundtracks, including Barnyard, Snoop’s Hood of Horror, The Mechanic, Black Snake Moan, and Brand the film. In recent years Cody has transitioned from creating music for films to producing films. Cody’s remarkable ability for filmmaking emerged after he began producing short videos documenting the experiences of North Mississippi Allstars on tour. After accumulating years of footage from the road, Cody turned the band’s experiences in to a visual narrative for the North Mississippi Allstars 2014 album World Boogie Is Coming.
Cody’s most recent achievement in film is the award-winning documentary he produced and co created, Take Me to the River. An incredible journey through the music of Memphis, the film brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together and captures the creative process of recording a historic new album. Cody also co-produced the soundtrack for the documentary, which pairs music legends and contemporary artists as they reinterpret songs that define the soul of American music.
GREAT PEACOCK (DUO):
“Sometimes dubbed, “ArenaCana” – with a combination of rock, country and folk Great Peacock write clean and direct songs filled with common truths that people of all walks of life can relate to. Truly a band to behold live, the band can have you raising your glass and shouting one moment and a second later have you pining to be with a former lover.”
