He was recently voted Best Roots Rock Artist by Offbeat Magazine’s readers, who also named his latest release, Music Is Love, as Roots Rock Album of the Year. Music Is Love was produced by veteran record producer John Chelew, a three- time Grammy winner for his work with The Blind Boys Of Alabama.

Papa Mali's original songs have been featured in several popular television series, including American Horror Story (FX) Banshee (Cinemax), Colony (USA Network) and No Activity (CBS All Access).

THeir self-titled 2010 release debuted at #1 on the relix/jamband charts, holding that position for the following three months. The single from that album "King Cotton Blues" features a Papa Mali Vocal duet with Willie Nelson and is one of nine original compositions co-written for the album by Mali and longtime Grateful Dead lyricist, the late Robert Hunter.
