Derek Trucks/Soul Stew Update


Derek Trucks Band
A recent note from the Derek Trucks Band confirms that a new studio album is in “full swing.” The band carved time out of their spring tour schedule to write and record at Trucks’ new home studio, which was completed in January his brother David and tech extraordinaire Bobby Tis. With the help of engineers Bobby and Marty Wall, the recording process has reportedly been going great on this forthcoming “homegrown” release. will truly be a “homegrown” creation! Rough estimates have the new album arriving in early 2009.

The Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival kicked off at Bonnaroo and will continue through this year’s Gathering of the Vibes on August 3. The Soul Stew Revival has officially grown to an eleven-piece ensemble for the summer including a three-piece horn section. Scrapomatic, the wonderful new side project for DTB lead vocalist Mike Mattison, will open all dates except July 5 on the summer Soul Stew tour.

The Derek Trucks Band kicks back into gear on August 17 at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival in Burlington, VT.
