After 80 shows in 100 days, playing in front of an estimated 400,000 people throughout Europe, Los Angeles newcomers Vintage Trouble are excited to return to the US for a series of dates beginning September 28th in Portland, Oregon with Joss Stone. This four-week tour, that also includes an appearance at this year’s Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, will see Vintage Trouble bring their stage stealing rock, soul, and blues infused performances back to the States after months of building a deeply dedicated fan-base overseas.
Four guys with a passion for music and a ton of soul, Vintage Trouble has won over entire continents, bringing an unforgettable passion to the stage and capturing the hearts of thousands. In between touring the world with Bon Jovi, Lenny Kravitz, Brian May of Queen, The Cranberries and Van Hunt, Vintage Trouble has headlined smaller venues creating a raucous energy that captivates the audience and turns clubs and pubs into wild late night parties. The band’s dedication to good music and their intoxicating sound has spawned an army of like-minded soulsters and devoted fans called the TroubleMakers.
The band’s undeniable power was captured on an unforgettable TV performance on Later … with Jools Holland. Vintage Trouble’s incendiary television debut became one of the most talked about performances of the year, blowing up on Twitter as the 6th most tweeted topic worldwide just hours after the show. The very next day, the band’s self-released debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions entered the charts, becoming the No. 1 R&B Album and No. 2 Rock Album on Amazon UK, No. 6 on Amazon overall and No. 13 on iTunes, ultimately debuting in the UK Top 40.

The New York Daily News raves “like late-period Humble Pie, Vintage Trouble toughens soul with rock’s muscle” while Soul Train applauds The Bomb Shelter Sessions for “transporting you to another time and space with its 50s-inspired blues and soul vibe and heart-in-the-palm-of-my-hand lyrical imagery. This is not an album to be missed.”
Both HMV and Music Weekly call Vintage Trouble the “Breakout Artist of the Year,” while Paste Magazine recently called lead singer Ty Taylor one of the “5 Best New Voices in Music.”
Vintage Trouble was awarded first prize at the iPhone Film Festival for their music video for song “Nancy Lee,” which was filmed exclusively using five iPhone 4’s in full HD. The video was shot, directed and edited by three-time Emmy Award winner Alen Petkovic and features Carmit Bachar of the Pussycat Dolls. Watch it here!
