Powerful Blues and Soul of LA’s Vintage Trouble
LA-based blues and soul band Vintage Trouble is a Live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth’d, pelvis-pushing juke joint revival festival. The blues and Soul of the fifties and sixties haven’t come that close since Vintage Trouble took the stage. I’m imagining the way they would perform Otis Redding’s “left all the water running” or Albert Kings “born under a bad sign”. But honestly Vintage Trouble doesn’t need a cover to show how they can play them Blues and Soul.
The blues rockers from Vintage Trouble started playing blues in a Hollywood studio in 2010, inspired by the music of legends like The Rolling Stones, Ike and Tina Turner, Led Zeppelin and Chuck Berry. Vintage Trouble took off like a rocket, performing around the States and Europe in their starting year. In their second year alive, these fellows released first album The Bomb Shelter Sessions (2011).
Debut Album ‘The Bomb Shelter Sessions’
With ‘The Bomb Shelter Sessions’ Vintage Trouble shows how the love for rhythmic, groovy and rocking soul music can be expressed. In songs like “Blues Hand Me Down”, “Total Strangers” and “Jezzebella” the energy of this band really rocks out of your speakers. “Run Outta You” is a more soulful –Otis Redding- kind of song and a example that the album is as divers as the music they love. it that takes skill Vintage Trouble obviously has.
Vintage Trouble on Stage in Europe and US
Since starting playing music in 2010 Vintage Trouble has gone from playing intimate hometown clubs to opening for The Rolling Stones in London’s Hyde Park, touring North America and Europe with The Who and playing headline shows worldwide.
In 2014 a special five-song EP called ‘The Swing House Acoustic Sessions’ was released by the retro-rockers Vintage Trouble performs one of the new tracks, “Another Man’s Words,” live in the studio in this video.
NEW Album Vintage Trouble
Since the spring of 2014 Vintage Trouble is part of the Blue Note Record family. A new album of the band can be expect in 2015! I’m really looking forward!
