Susan Tedeschi
Back To The River, (October 28, Verve Forecast), the forthcoming release by Grammy nominated vocalist/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, features collaborations with a bevy of roots rock royalty. Susan's earlier releases featured a limited number of original songs but on her new record she co-wrote on all but one of the 11 tracks. The record features writing credits by everyone from the legendary Tony Joe White to up and coming singer songwriter Sonya Kitchell, from songwriter/producer John Leventhal to Gary Louris of the Jayhawks. Susan worked with each of these artists in person rather than the now common practice of collaborating remotely.

In Nashville, Susan visited Tony Joe White where they wrote together in his studio, a converted civil war hospital on the outskirts of the city limits. Tony Joe asked Susan to tell him about her life and she said "I feel like I am constantly trying to get home and back to the river and back to my family." Susan lives on the St. John's River in Jacksonville, FL with her husband Derek Trucks and their two children. Tony Joe suggested she write about that and "Back To The River," the album's title track was born.

Susan co-wrote two of the most riveting songs on the album with John Leventhal (Rosanne Cash, David Crosby, Michelle Branch) at the Pilot Recording Studios in NYC: "Revolutionize Your Soul" a song inspired by "A Long Walk Home," a memoir Susan read about boy soldiers in Africa; and "700 Houses" a lament for all the recent natural disasters happening all over the world. Susan explains, "John's writing style differs from mine in that he likes using strong visualization in his lyrics. I learned a lot from writing with him and I think these are two of the most powerful songs on the record."

Up and comer Sonya Kitchell is one of the artists that traveled to Susan's home to write with her. "I've known Sonya since she was 16 years old, I've been a fan of her songwriting and always wanted to collaborate with her." Together they wrote the anthemic track "People" which has already become a highlight of Tedeschi's live shows.

Susan Tedeschi's next show is on 11/06 in Virginia; complete tour dates available here.

Derek is one lucky man. There must be some awesome Friday night jams in that family.

Can't wait for Susan's new album hope it is as good as Hope and Desire. Her and Dereks kids are probably going to be the most talented kids ever.

I wonder why she didn't change her name to Susan Trucks? I think it would have been cool if she changed her middle name to Monster too. Susan "Monster" Trucks. I think she'd sell more records that way.

maybe next time verve will let her do half co-writes and the other half original band penned tunes. then maybe the next *ALL* band penned original songs?

Derek and Susan are amazingly humble people. I was fortunate enough to meet the both of them. They put on a hell of a show in Milwaukee. P.S. There is a DT and ST Soul Stew Revival albumn in the works...get excited!

^ And you know this how?

There may be one in the works but I wouldn't count on it having much original material and I also wouldn't count on it coming out anytime soon(maybe 2 years from now) especially with both of them putting out brand new albums right now and also using the next year or so to promote those albums on tour as they should be. Susan Tedeschi last week and the Derek Trucks Band in 2 months.

I read it Derek Trucks' website. Also if you look at the setlist from the SSR shows, its all covers of The Band, Derek and the Dominos, Stevie Wonder, and the list goes on...so thanks for your well researched input HWP.
