TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND
Genre: Rock, Blues, Soul
Tedeschi Trucks Band is an 11-member collective that thrills audiences worldwide with its transcendent live performances and award-winning albums. The band was formed in 2010 by husband-and-wife Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, and features two harmony singers, a three-piece horn section, keyboards, bass, and a pair of drummers. Just three years in, TTB has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe, and Japan, headlining the Newport Jazz Festival, co-headlining tours with B.B. King and The Black Crowes, and playing to packed houses in the world’s most celebrated venues from Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Beacon Theatre to the Hollywood Bowl and Royal Albert Hall. TTB’s debut release Revelator, produced at the couple’s Swamp Raga home studio, earned both a Grammy and Blues Music Award, while 2011's dynamic live follow-up, Everybody’s Talkin’, delivered a double-disc classic reminiscent of legendary concert recordings like Mad Dogs and Englishmen and The Allman Brothers Band’s At Fillmore East. Currently the band is touring in support of its second studio effort, Made Up Mind, which entered the Billboard 200 at #11 and was hailed by Rolling Stone as “equal parts Stax and Muscle Shoals without dilution of either."
Genre: Southern Rock, Blues
Rich Robinson, best known as the guitarist, songwriter, and founder of The Black Crowes, stands ready to complete the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. A worldwide Black Crowes tour kept Robinson busy in 2013, but he found the time to return to Woodstock to record The Ceaseless Sight. The album finds Robinson stepping solidly into his own as a solo artist as he adds confident vocalist and lyricist to his accomplished musical resume. The Ceaseless Sight will be released in June 2014 and the Rich Robinson Band will tour through the year in support of its release.
