Super group with Trucks and Tedeschi performing at Bluesfest

THIS SUPERGROUP features 'power couple' Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. Together, the couple has soared to incredible heights since the amalgamation in 2011.

Revelator, their first album, cemented the promise of great things with a Best Blues Album Grammy and a Blues Music Award for Album of the Year.

Let Me Get By is the third studio album from blues-rock group, released in January 2016.

Tedeschi said all compositions in this album were written by her husband.

"Either myself or Mike Madison, or somebody in the band, helped write the songs," she said.

"Some of them are summer-bluesy but some are very artistic and cool. Some other that are very funky, other are jazzy. There is a lot of different influences.

"I'm really proud of it. It sounds rally well. Derek produced the record and we did everything in-house, including the engineering and mixing."

Tedeschi said the band may also play some of the songs from their tribute to Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishman tour of 1970.

At Virginia's Lockn' Festival on September 11, 2015, the Tedeschi Trucks Band recreated most of the Mad Dogs & Englishmen album with the help of some of the original crew, includingkeyboardist Chris Stainton.

"We all learned all the songs, so every once in awhile we sprinkle a few here and there because they are so much fun, and people just eat them up," she said.

Tedeschi has been praised for her insightful song writing, galvanising, emotive vocals and her blues-informed, gutsy guitar style.

Formally leading his own The Derek Trucks Band for many years and as a member of The Allman Brothers Band, Trucks was listed by Rolling Stone as number 16 on the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
