Get Vintage Trouble songs and albums from:
Vintage Trouble is a sensational, soulful four-man band whose very essence screams out loud of the late 1950's to 1960's. Turned on by and tuned into the evolutionary period in music and life when there was a razor thin line between Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, the band reconnects us all to one universal vibration. Their modern day classics transport the mind, spirit and body back to a sweaty, swinging, heart-thumping speakeasy. Their live shows feel like a sweet southern down-home revival mixed with a gritty, downtown edge. Inspirationally, Otis Redding, Chuck Berry and Ike and Tina Turner can all be felt in woven clothe that tailor-suit the band like honey to the bee. When the buzz tells you they're near, get to them...and be prepared to be moved.

Get Cole Williams songs and albums from:
Had it not been for that psychology course she took her first semester in college, Cole Antoinette Williams could easily have been filling her days as a therapist instead of working on her new project, Out Of The Basement , Part 1. After hearing said project, chances are you will be sending Professor Whatshisname a thank you note. Clearly, Williams has found her calling. Having been immersed in music since the wizened old age of 4 - when she learned to play the piano (she was 6 when she began singing) - Williams tried going the traditional route by enrolling in college and contemplating a career in social services. On that fateful day, however, as she sat, staring out the window and letting the words of her professor wash over her in ignorant bliss, she realized that she was paying to learn about something that she just simply didn't find interesting. Music. Singing. Creating. Now, those she found interesting. Logic won out and she dropped those psych classes after that semester. Working on her own material, she drew inspiration from some of her favorite artists, such as Donny Hathaway ("I have an affection for the space he was in while creating and making music. You listen to him and feel everything he was going through [while making a particular song] and you believe it!"), Lauryn Hill ("She has a great dynamic of raw emotion and polished vocals."), Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, Sam Cooke, Bob Marley and The Beatles. "I think I find the positive pieces of each artist I look up to and aspire to the vision and clarity in which they work; but I also examine the negative aspects of the industry in their life and put myself in their shoes... how, if possible, can I do it differently." Raised in the East Flatbush (aka the Little West Indies) section of Brooklyn, as the only child of a Jamaican mother and Bed Stuy-native father, Cole Williams was immediately inducted into a melting pot of food, music and attitudes. The neighborhood was rough, but the influences remained. Combine those with the records Cole listened to every Sunday in the family's living room - Richard Smallwood, Andre Crouch, Yolanda Adams, Bob Marley, the Mighty Sparrow, the Jackson 5, Motown, Dancehall Reggae - and you get an eclectic mix of genres that continued to dance around in her head. She has spent a lifetime learning, admiring, making music. Now, a run-down of the facts: In 2005, Williams released her first EP, The Basement Sessions EP. One of the singles "Anything," was also released on two compilation CDs: Paris to Brooklyn and France's Soul R&B Magazine (alongside Kanye West and R. Kelly). In 2006, she earned a Swedish Grammy nomination for Best Live Performance (with Glenn Wish and The New Memphis Orchestra. Then, in 2009, Williams served as the voice of Suave Professionals Shampoo for their "C'mon Ya'll" jingle as well as Cover Girl's "Shadow Blast" campaign in 2011 . Interspersed throughout all of this came gigs/sessions with Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam, Kaissa, Somi, Noel Gourdin, Big Brooklyn Red, Dana Fuchs, Honey LaRochelle Maya Azucena and Brother Joscephus and The Love Revolution Orchestra; recording back ground vocals for Melinda Doolittle, Diane Birch and Joss Stone; writing/producing jingles for a whole slew of companies, including Salme Dahlstrom, Hidden Tiger Music, The Lodge and Music Playground, among many others. Additionally, she performed background vocals on The Today Show, The Conan O'Brien Show, The Craig Ferguson Show, 90210 and the UK's The Jools Holland Show alongside S-Curve recording artist Little Jackie. While putting the finishing touches on her sophomore project Out Of The Basement Part 1,Williams is currently performing with two bands: That'sMyCole (soul/blues/ska) and People's Champs (an afro beat/rock/soul hybrid).

"Life is a stage," says Cole Williams, 2016 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and 2017 Congo Square Rhythm Festival performer, with the authority of a seasoned artist, entrepreneur and educator. More than a singer/songwriter/producer/ composer, Cole has expanded her repertoire to reflect an increasingly eclectic assortment of creative endeavors. Blessed with a powerful voice and superlative musical instincts, Cole is forging a fearlessly original sound that is as eclectic as her outré fashion sense.
East Flatbush, Brooklyn gave birth to this multi instrumentalist (voice, piano, percussion), and New Orleans has given this butterfly wings, as she fearlessly pioneers her sound, African Rock. In her early years, Cole attended Brooklyn Technical High School (known for its breadth of alumni, including Nobel Laureates, as well as Mos Def and Talib Kweli) before studying classical voice at New Jersey City University. This rich background coupled with Cole's foundation in classical piano (trained from ages 4-17), church upbringing and childhood love affair with her parents' record collection provided her with the foundation to eventually broaden her artistic output, and become a diverse force in the entertainment industry.
Cole's stage presence has been likened to Grace Jones with a girl next door flare bends and melds sound breaking traditional genre distinctions, making her a unique musical entity, comfortable singing rock ballads as she is reggae or a blues tracks. She is an innovative multi instrumentalist, site and choir director with Community Works of New Orleans, an ASCAP affiliated writer and publisher, Tuesday radio show host of the WWOZ New Orleans Music Show, WWOZ documentary producer/interviewer and endorsed by Regal Tip. Her latest albums , a limited edition double EP – Out of the Basement, Out of the Box and Sin City, the mixtape — is currently carried at Louisiana Music Factory. Cole's single "Occupy Yourself" is featured on the 30th Anniversary BRC compilation CD.
Williams' solo band Cole Williams Band has opened for Emily King, Corey Henry and Treme Funktet and performed at iconic venues across the globe, including iconic Blue Note, Maple Leaf Bar, Ooh Poo Pah Doo, BAM Cafe, Le China and House Of Blues.
Cole's vocal stylings are featured on the 30th Annual Back Rock Coalition Compilation CD, "Curry Chicken" by Joey Bada$$ , "Peaches N Herb" (premiered by Wax Poetics), "Stand Tall" (premiered by Offbeat Magazine), "Ray Charles" by Chiddy Bang - commercials such as CoverGirl, JC Penny, Suave Professionals, . In addition, she has contributed background vocals for Aloe Blacc, Little Jackie, Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam, Diane Birch as well as Somi, Kaissa, Dana Fuchs and Neurotic Drum Band. Cole's velvet presence is felt with the band, Pimps Of Joytime (2012-2015), whom Williams is a former member. Cole's vocal performance have been featured on television shows as prominent as Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, The Wendy Williams Show, The Jools Holland Show, The Craig Ferguson Show, Live With Kelly & Michael, 90210, and The Today Show.
Cole has participated in photo shoots for designers such as Elyvette, Makabu and KALYSSCOLORS, and for publications and photographers like Essence, Italian Vogue, Bill Wadman, New Orleans Magazine and LiveForLiveNola. Cole Williams has forged a multi-faceted media identity that defies the standard definitions of being an artist. Her expansive resume hints at a deep talent, grounded in truth and thirsting for continued opportunities of expression and expansion.
