3 Skulls And The Truth

"3 Skulls And The Truth" is a collaboration between Los Lobos main man David Hidalgo, Mato Nanji of Indigenous and Black Crowes lead guitarist Luther Dickinson and will be released through the Provogue/Mascot Label Group on 24 September 2012 [Cat. No. PRD73922]. This is a rare once in a lifetime collaboration. Each artist is on tour this year with their own groups and anticipation among blues rock fans for this powerful triple guitar alliance is great.

The trio met as featured artists on the Experience Hendrix tour, which has been famous for bringing together guitarists such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang to pay homage to Hendrix. With nearly 25 Los Lobos records to his credit, as well as collaborations with artists as diverse as John Lee Hooker, Roy Orbison, Paul Simon, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan, frontman David Hidalgo is one of the most respected and eclectic musicians in the business. With a career spanning more than 30 years, this singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is well versed in a variety of genres which meshed with Mato and Luther. In addition to Los Lobos, David is also a member of Los Super Seven, the Latin Playboys, and Houndog, featuring Canned Heat's Mike Halby.

Mato Nanji, longtime frontman of Native American band Indigenous, released his 8th CD earlier this year which went top five on the iTunes blues chart both in the USA and in Europe and made Amazon.com's top 40 best selling blues CDs in the states. With influences such as Jr. Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, the Red Devils and Jimi Hendrix, Mato is one of the most respected touring blues musicians on the circuit.

Grammy-nominated guitar master Luther Dickinson has recorded more than a dozen records fronting The North Mississippi Allstars, three records with the Black Crowes and collaborated with Billy Lee Riley, Robert Randolph, John Hiatt, and many others. The son of famed Memphis record producer/recording artist, Jim Dickinson, Luther grew up in a musical household and was friends of R.L. Burnside and Jr. Kimbrough's families so you know these blues roots run deep in his veins. Dickinson's phenomenal guitar prowess led to him making a short list of Rolling Stones new guitar gods and he produced Otha Turner's "Everybody Hollering Goat" CD which was named one of the ten most important blues records of the 90s by Rolling Stone.
