D’Addario, the world’s premier music accessory manufacturer, is proud to officially welcome Nalle Colt of Vintage Trouble to their distinguished roster of amazing artists.
Hailing from Sweden, Colt was inspired from a young age by Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Rory Gallagher, & Magic Sam. Moving to LA to pursue his music passion, he linked up with three equally likeminded musicians in 2010 to form the dynamically energetic group, Vintage Trouble.
As a D’Addario strings player since 2011, Colt’s band may be called Vintage Trouble, but his performance is trouble-free when he rocks Planet Waves fretted EXL140 strings for sold out crowds around the world. “I've always loved D'Addario, and I am so excited to now be a part of the family. They sound great, feel great, and last long,” raves Colt.
Entering The Bomb Shelter Studio, Colt and his band recorded an album's worth of material in three days, which was intended to be demos, but ended up being pressed into CDs. The Bomb Shelter Sessions became Vintage Trouble’s first album. With a unanimous decision to stay in Los Angeles to build their musical foundation as a band, weekly residences in the area lead to a large assembly of fans in a short amount of time. These fans became known as the "TroubleMakers." It was this underground buzz that lead to legendary manager Doc McGhee taking notice and signing Vintage Trouble to his roster after hearing only a single chorus.
Receiving praise across the board, 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, charting in the "UK Top 40" by the time it was officially released in July. Amongst the accolades, Guitarist Magazine ran a feature about Colt, and The Bomb Shelter Sessions was named one of the "Top 25 Guitar Albums of the Year” by Total Guitar Magazine.
“It’s an honor to have fresh unique talent like Nalle on board with us,” exclaims Marco Soccoli. “As much as he’s already achieved, D’Addario looks forward to continuing a long collaboration that will push those achievements infinitely further.”
D’Addario has been dedicated to taking music performance to the next level for over five decades. Thus, the company looks forward to inspiring Nalle Colt as he helps take Vintage Trouble to even further levels for decades to come.
