Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, an 11-piece tour-de-force, has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. Driven by Trucks, number 16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi, blessed with a voice that passionately delivers a range of powerful R&B belters to gentle ballads, the group enlists dual drummers, two vocalists, a three-piece horn section, bass, and a multi-instrumentalist keyboard player for what is a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts collective.
Tedeschi Trucks Band debuted big with its Grammy Award-winning Revelator, 2012’s dynamic live follow up, Everybody’s Talkin’, and 2013’s critically-acclaimed Made Up Mind bolstering the Jacksonville-based group’s growing reputation as the preeminent blues-rock leader. With guitarist Derek Trucks’ departure from The Allman Brothers Band final at the end of 2014, the band has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances with an increasing repertoire of soulful neo-classics. Tedeschi Trucks Band’s third full-length LP, Let Me Get By marks the beginning of another exciting chapter in the band’s storied tale, set for release on January 29, 2016. It is the first album Trucks produced on his own, and the first one he and Tedeschi wrote all of the songs.
