Tedeschi Trucks Band Rayland Baxter
Tedeschi Trucks Band, the 11-piece ensemble led by husband-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, have proven themselves one of the hottest, most uplifting acts on the road today. Formed in 2010 when Derek and Susan decided to set aside their successful solo careers and join forces, Tedeschi Trucks Band has since been touring the globe - and accruing fans and accolades in the process. Fronted by Trucks' signature slide-guitar sound and Tedeschi's pliant, honey-to-husk voice, TTB -- as their fans know them -- delivers a hearty roots-rich musical mix with the power to renew faith in live music. The band is currently touring in advance of the release of their second studio album, slated for release in late summer. Their debut album, Revelator, was praised as a 4-star masterpiece by Rolling Stone and won a GRAMMY for Best Blues Album of the Year.
