Recorded in Derek and Susan's own Swamp Raga Studios in Jacksonville, co-produced by Derek with producer/engineer Jim Scott (Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco), Revelator is a confident yet unforced triumph offering a cohesive vision: an idyllic, musical world in which the echoes of so many great traditions — Delta blues and Memphis soul, Sixties rock and Seventies funk — flow together naturally, blending with an entirely original, modern sensibility.
"This album is an evolution of what we’ve all been doing before," says Trucks. "With this album, everything’s been thought out a little deeper, figuring out the music and what the tunes mean—more time given to the whole process."
"These songs are all life-adventure stuff," adds Tedeschi, who co-wrote most of the album with her husband. "Whether soul-searching or love-searching, looking for shelter, or hope, or just a break...Revelator is about storytelling through songs—songs with nice musical structures, with beginnings, middles and ends, a lot of content that people can really dig into."
