Fresh Stuff from the Tedeschi Trucks Band
The rock and blues power couple Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks are back with a new album and, as fans of the Tedeschi Trucks Band have come to expect, it is full of soul, heart and gritty blues.
Titled Let Me Get By, the album features 10 new songs, including some they’ve been touring and some that are seeing the light of day on the album. It’s available on vinyl, CD, and a deluxe CD.
The album marks a turning point and new beginning for the Tedeschi Trucks Band. As the website states,
“Let Me Get By is an album of firsts – in addition to being the first TTB record Derek produced on his own (with the contribution of Doyle Bramhall II performing/co-producing on three tracks), and the first on which he and Susan co-wrote all the songs within the TTB family, it’s Derek’s first album since his 15-year run as a member of the Allman Brothers concluded when the group disbanded last year, providing time for Derek and engineer Bobby Tis to spend countless hours in the studio honing the sounds and arrangements for this album.
It’s also the first lead vocals on a TTB album for Mike Mattison, whose songwriting and harmonies have always been one of the defining features of the band’s albums. Finally, it’s the first album with Tim Lefebvre on board, whose deeply propulsive bass lines drive the rhythm section in exciting new directions on record.”
