Vintage Blue on Unsigned Corner
In the wake of the Boston Marathon attacks, the blog Unsigned Corner
chose to feature the band and our song "Just Breathe". The song is about remaining calm and realizing that love is all around you. It was a great choice by the blog.

JP'S Music Blog - CD Review
From Chicago comes Vintage Blue with their debut album “Strike
The Mics.” The album was originally released last year as the band’s pure rock
sound found them opening shows for Lifehouse, Fitz & The Tantrums and The
The album begins with the fun rock sound of “Set You Free”
as the addition of horns give their music that little extra shot of adrenaline
that makes you want to dance. They rock out on “Unchained” as their sound gets
a bit edgier with a little raw guitar. They move over to a more pop-rock
sound with the keyboard highlights of “Speak” and the up-tempo “Sleep On This.”
Vintage Blue travel out to the country with the songs, “Just Breathe” and “Against
Time,” before finishing up the album with the fun, upbeat sound of “True.”
Vintage Blue is currently working on their follow-up album
and will be announcing more live dates very soon. For more information on this
rising rock band, please visit vintagebluemusic.com.

I'M WITH THE BAND - 1/4/13 Show Review
Fresh off their two-night stint with Sister Hazel at Chicago's House of Blues, local band Vintage Blue rocked Lincoln Hall on Friday night. The stage might have been smaller, yet the sound was anything but. If you missed the show -- hope you didn't! -- you can still sample and buy tracks below from their album, Strike the mics. But you'll definitely want to check their page for the next opportunity to see them live.
“After feasting your ears on Vintage Blue’s debut full-length album, Strike The Mics, chances are you’ll be firm believers that they’re poised to become the Windy City’s next great rock-and-rollers. Regardless of who’s writing or singing, Vintage Blue has created an album in Strike The Mics that will please even the most fickle of rock fans.”
Trevor Medeiros, SOCO Magazine, January 2012
You Sing, I Write

Strike the Mics embodies 13 standout tracks that showcase the band's ability to rock arenas while at the same time perform an intimate acoustic set. Not always an easy thing to accomplish, Vintage Blue's debut full-length aptly showcases their staying power.
“…loosely funky… folk/soul…”

Wildy's World Review
“Drawing on a wealth of influences and sonic palettes, Strike The Mics is a cathartic experience. …Vintage Blue does so much well on Strike The Mics that it’s difficult to summarize. Ranging from singer/songwriter balladry to classic rock to modern rock and alternative, the band is eclectic in its range and songwriting talent. …In another era these guys would be mega stars. … Strike The Mics is likely to become a treasured and oft-played part of your collection.”
“Chicago’s Vintage Blue is the musical equivalent of comfort food. The rock band’s sound is familiar and accessible without a hint of pretense.”
