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 with legends like The Who and AC/DC, and playing sold-out headline shows worldwide. On their first album for Blue Note Records, the Los Angeles-based foursome — singer Ty Taylor, guitarist Nalle Colt, bassist Rick Barrio Dill, and drummer Richard Danielson — channel the vitality and passion of their live show into a fresh and urgent take on guitar-powered rhythm & blues.
Produced by Blue Note president and three-time Grammy Award-winner Don Was, 1 Hopeful Rd. (2015) finds Vintage Trouble building off the groove-fueled sound that Yahoo! once painted as “James Brown singing lead for Led Zeppelin” and blending blues, soul, and riff-heavy rock & roll with joyfully gritty abandon. As heard on lead single “Run Like the River,” 1 Hopeful Rd. matches Vintage Trouble’s emotional intensity with a raw yet sophisticated musicianship that’s prompted the New York Times to name the band modern-day answer to Otis Redding and BBC Radio 6 to anoint them “the heirs of rhythm and blues.”
