Over the past few years, Vintage Trouble have wowed audiences across the globe by opening for The Rolling Stones in London’s Hyde Park, touring North America and Europe with The Who, and playing sold-out headline shows worldwide.
Now, the Los Angeles-based foursome — singer Ty Taylor, guitarist Nalle Colt, bassist Rick Barrio Dill, and drummer Richard Danielson — channel their live show vitality into a new album, 1 Hopeful Rd.
Produced by Blue Note president Don Was (a three-time Grammy Award-winner known for his work with the Stones, Bob Dylan, Al Green, and Iggy Pop), 1 Hopeful Rd. finds Vintage Trouble building on groove-fueled sound and blending blues, soul, and riff-heavy rock & roll with joyfully gritty abandon.
Recorded at L.A.’s East West Studios and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Mark Ronson, U2, The Black Keys), the album borrows its title from lead single Run Like the River. With foot-stomping rhythm and gospel harmonies, Run Like the River embodies the infectiously irrepressible mood that runs throughout 1 Hopeful Rd. and gives even the album’s most pained moments an electrifying edge.
Longtime devotees of incendiary artists like Ike & Tina Turner, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry, Vintage Trouble possess sharply honed instincts for rhythm and groove and unabashed showmanship.
Vintage Trouble have performed at huge festivals including Coachella as well as on late night shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, and David Letterman, and are aiming at a major world domination with a tour which takes in Bexhill on Friday June 2 with a live gig at the De La Warr Pavilion - doors open from 7.30pm; tickets cost £21.50 from www.dlwp.com or by calling 01424 229111.
