Vintage Trouble – comprising Ty Taylor (vocals), Nalle Colt (guitar), Richard Danielson (drums) and Rick Barrio Dill (bass) – play live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth'd, pelvis-pushing juke music. Or, as Yahoo! Music put it, "imagine James Brown singing lead for Led Zeppelin and you'll get an idea of Vintage Trouble's muscular, in the pocket sound." The New York Times noted, "Like Otis Redding, Vintage Trouble makes music that is a little bit of everything...you can slow dance, groove, rock and let it all go."
Following the release of its debut album, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, the band was soon selling out headline shows worldwide, opening for The Rolling Stones and touring with The Who, and performing on shows like “Later…with Jools Holland,”“Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live”– all before Vintage Trouble had even signed to a major label.
