|TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND MADE UP MIND DEBUTS AT #11 ON BILLBOARD CHART|
FOLLOW UP TO GRAMMY WINNING REVELATOR EARNS RAVE REVIEWS
TOUR DATES INCLUDE THREE NIGHTS AT NEW YORK'S BEACON THEATER
(New York, NY) -- Tedeschi Trucks Band's new album, Made Up Mind - released by Sony Masterworks on August 20 - has debuted #11 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, #1 on the Blues chart, #2 on the Rock chart, #2 on the FMQB AAA non-comm chart, # 5 on the BDS AAA Indicator chart, # 4 on the Americana chart and #1 on the Roots Music Blues Chart with 26,466 units sold - Tedeschi Trucks Band's highest unit debut to date.
Made Up Mind is nothing less than a quantum leap forwardfor TTB. If Revelator and Everybody's Talkin' were all about finding their way, this new effort is where they emerge as a fully formed band for the ages. Made Up Mind is available through the bands website, here:http://www.tedeschitrucksband.com.
Rolling Stone magazine raves: "The album combines funk, greasy blues and Memphis soul; beefier horn lines, snappier interplay between two drummers, and Tedeschi's rugged vocals."
Throughout the course of the album it becomes increasingly apparent that Susan Tedeschi has evolved into one of the most dauntingly commanding vocalists in contemporary music, her serious lung power exploding on standout tracks such as the über-funky "Misunderstood" and just as convincingly digging into the core of poignant, tender acoustic ballads like "Calling Out to You" and "Idle Wind".
Derek Trucks has indisputably matured into one of the monster guitarists of our time, tearing up barn burners like the title track "Made Up Mind" with his masterful slide and lead licks while showcasing his easier, more subtle touch on the bluesy "Do I Look Worried". Premier Guitar Magazine praises: "When Trucks cuts loose, the gloves come off. And that's what makes this album essential listening for anyone who plays slide guitar."
