Combining inspired, electrified rhythm & blues, rock, classic song craft and a pinch of Memphis soul, Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by the husband-and-wife team of singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks, have grown into one of the most deeply skilled and admired musical ensembles in the world. TTB continue to flourish and surprise, and tonight’s debut performance for Austin City Limits marks another exciting milestone in the band’s storied tale.
The TTB journey began in 2010 with their first gig at the Savannah Music Festival, marking a leap of faith as Tedeschi and Trucks left their hard earned and successful solo careers behind. A solid year of touring led to the recording and release of their Grammy-winning debut album Revelator in 2011, and Made Up Mind two years later. Capturing the admiration of both concert audiences and critics worldwide, the group has averaged over 200 days on the road for the five straight years, now with an expanded line-up of twelve musicians all the top of their craft.
Hand picked to play with the likes of Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Santana, TTB has also appeared on late night television shows hosted by Jay Leno, Conan, and most recently Stephen Colbert, for the premiere The Late Show just this past September.
TTB is set to release their third full-length studio album, Let Me Get By, in early 2016. Produced by Derek Trucks and recorded at Swamp Raga Studios, the band’s home studio in Jacksonville, Florida, the album, featuring ten new original songs all written within the band, is an absorbing, self-assured artistic leap forward
