TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND, the 11-piece ensemble led by husband-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, have proven themselves one of the most uplifting acts on the road today. Formed in 2010,TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND delivers a hearty roots-rich musical mix fronted by Trucks’ signature slide guitar sound and Tedeschi’s pliant, honey-to-husk voice. The band kicked off 2013 in the studio where they recorded their second studio album before hitting the road again. They recently wrapped up five shows in Australia and are back on tour in the U.S. this spring before launching the summer tour.
TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND’S debut album, Revelator–praised as a “4-star masterpiece” by Rolling Stone–won a Grammy for Best Blues Album in 2012 while Trucks himself was also honored with a lifetime Grammy for his longstanding membership in the Allman Brothers Band. With the band firing on all cylinders, they released their first live album in May of 2012–Everybody’s Talkin–a double CD set of originals and vibrant covers that showcases the band’s dynamic energy on stage. On the heels of the album’s release they toured the U.S. andCanada including a run of dates with B.B. King and a headlining spot at Newport Jazz Festival. The band’s new album is slated for release summer of 2013.
