D'Addario Signs Guitarist Nalle Colt

jpegD’Addario has welcomed Nalle Colt of Vintage Trouble to their roster of 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 Vintage Trouble.

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.
