Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation as one of the premier live bands performing today—and they show no signs of slowing down as they head into their ninth year together. Led by Derek Trucks’ stinging fretwork and Susan Tedeschi’s naturally stunning, emotive vocals and guitar talents, the 12-member collective continues to expand musical boundaries in ways that only a rare caliber of musician can achieve.
“This band is really good at reinvented themselves every night,” Derek insists. “That’s how you keep things fresh. You don’t want to abandon the sentiment of a song, but you do want to be able to expand on it in new and exciting ways.”
The band is touring in 2019 behind their fourth studio album, Signs. Commanding performances and exceptional musical chemistry—hallmarks of the can’t-miss-concert experience fans have come to anticipate live—are evident throughout the album’s 11 original tracks. From uplifting soulful anthems to bittersweet ballads and driving rock ‘n roll, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers a sound and message that tap tradition while also extending the edges of American music, with a genre defying collection that is all their own.
“This is a special group of musicians,” Susan says in summary. “All of these people we play with are extremely talented, and each of them could easily be fronting their own outfit. Everybody is so gifted, and we all realize how special Tedeschi Trucks Band is. We’re not going to mess it up. We’re going to keep working hard at it and move it forward.”
