Rolling my camera bag along the clanging metal walkways of the dark, half underground service entrance to a Bristol superclub, I thought this was such an unusual venue for an LA based rhythm and blues band. Inside the floor was sticky, the air was hazy and Vintage Trouble were on stage sound checking something dirty & soulful. I knew this would be a good shoot! Nalle Colt was so gracious with his time – take a look at the full interview in Guitar Magazine. It’s a really interesting piece about how he approached his songwriting while quite literally stranded on an island with only two guitars and amps. Thankfully he’s able to bring a bit more gear on tour so we also shot his Gretsch Duo Jet custom built by Stephen Stern – that was fun to see having not long visited Stephen in the Gretsch Custom Shop myself. The gig was amazing, the band’s energy is intense! Nalle was an absolute professional and a pleasure to photograph… of course, those Scandinavian cheekbones are so easy to light!
