It didn't take long for them to do it, but the musical duo of Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks
have proven themselves to be one of the hottest and most inspirational musical acts taking their show on the road today. Tedeschi
Trucks Band have reached amazing milestones and accomplishments, all while just trying to create music and have fun doing
it. Each performance they end up doing always brings their fans in droves, clamoring to hear the fun and energetic rock sound
that only they can create.
The husband-and-wife musical collaboration band that is as good as everyone says is a rare
thing to see, so don't miss out on your chance to see this Grammy winning band when they hit the stage.
Tedeschi Trucks Band's unique flavor comes not only from the varied musical experience of its large band, but it also comes
from the lead musicians themselves. Susan Tedeschi discovered her musical talents at an early age, landing a part in a Broadway
musical at the age of six. She was playing in local bands by the age 13 and by 18 had formed her own band. Although she grew
up Catholic, she was intrigued and moved by the music of African-American gospel churches and even joined a gospel choir while
attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Derek Trucks was a musical prodigy, who discovered his talents for
music before he could read. Because his fingers were to small to hold down the guitar strings, Trucks started with the slide
guitar. The instrument has become a part of his signature sound. In fact, he is so talented on the slide guitar that he has
been named to Rolling Stone's Top 100 Guitarists of All Time.
About the Artist
Formed in 2010 from the
sole desire to be together more often as well as create music together, the husband and wife team of Susan Tedeschi and Derek
Trucks have been wowing audiences with their classic rock sound. It all started with their debut performance on New Year's
Eve a few years ago. And now, the band is drawing thousands of fans everywhere they go. They are always bringing new material
to their shows. And while Tedeschi and Trucks are obviously the driving force of this band, it extends far beyond that. There
are nine other members of this band, helping create a more musically layered atmosphere with instruments such as trombone,
flutes, percussion, and more.
The atmosphere that takes place when they all play on stage is a pleasure to see. It's
as if they are a well-oiled machine, with every cog in its place. There's a rhythm there that doesn't exist in every group.
They almost intuitively know what their fellow band member will do next.
Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi had their own
successful music careers when the two got married. But as the years went by, the time spent apart, writing, recording and
touring separately became a problem. They wanted to find a way to spend more time together and still play their music. They
came up with the crazy idea to combine their bands and create one cohesive unit. Although the couple was afraid of what their
bands or their fans might think, they were pleasantly surprised when both were very supportive. Their fans couldn't wait to
see what their combined music would sound like. The band released their first studio album, Revelator, in 2011, and the world
got a taste of the musical superpower the musicians created when they joined forces. The album was a huge hit, earning the
group a Grammy for Best Blues Album. They followed it up with their sophomore effort, Everybody's Talkin', which is what everyone
was doing after hearing these amazing musicians. The second album earned several Blues Music Awards and brought the group
even more notoriety and a larger fan base. Now, the band has released their third album, Made Up Mind, that brings the band's
music to a whole other level.
They are currently on tour, promoting their latest album, and singing some of their chart-topping
songs. They will be making stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Baton Rouge, Washington, DC, and many more cities around the
For Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, it was never about the fame and fortune.
They just wanted to create great music and perform it for their devoted fans. They also wanted to be together more than a
few months out of the year, so they hatched a plan to combine their successful solo careers to form one big happy family of
a band. Although it seemed improbably in the beginning, the bands and their unique sounds somehow melded perfectly, creating
a style that was all their own. It wasn't long before the band was signing a record deal and producing their first album.
Their first effort, Revelator, was a revelation. It made music fans and the finicky music business stand up and take notice.
Now, the band is selling millions of albums and selling out venues across the world.
just sticking to one continent, the Tedeschi Trucks Band have taken their act across seas to Japan and Europe as well, building
their fan base and taking in new experiences wherever they go. The group fosters a creative atmosphere when making music,
and expand beyond simple genre borders, so it's never as simple as making rock music, it's so much more than that. Seeing
