Grammy winner PAULA COLE, Tyler Hilton and Vintage Trouble close Summer Concert Series

August 24
3:43 AM 2010


On Wed, August 25 beginning at 6 p.m., gather on The Green for the final concert of the annual free Summer Concert Series at The Americana at Brand produced by Chris Isaacson presents! Free and open to the public, the series finally will star Grammy Award-winner and critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Paula Cole with Tyler Hilton and Ty Taylor fronted soul rock band Vintage Trouble.

Recognized for her soulful lyrics and unforgettable voice, Grammy winner Paula Cole is best-known for her breakout album This Fire with the smash hit songs "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?" and "I Don't Want to Wait" which was the theme song to the hit WB show Dawson's Creek. Her performance at Summer Concert Series comes on the heels of a national tour and the release of her much-anticipated new album, Ithaca.

On her fifth album Ithaca, Cole takes listeners on an intensely emotional, yet uplifting journey through divorce ("The Hard Way," "P.R.E.N.U.P") and the struggle to recover one's identity ("Elegy," "Waiting on a Miracle") before allowing herself to revel in the healing, redemptive power of new love ("Sex," "Come on Inside"). Along the way, she acknowledges being torn between work and her daughter ("Somethin' I've Gotta Say"), and ultimately celebrates having music to get her through it all ("Music In Me"). Paula will debut songs from Ithaca on The Americana at Brand stage on Wednesday Night.

Joining Paula will be singer/songwriter and guitarist Tyler Hilton who recently released his new album Ladies and Gentlemen featuring the single "Sunset Blvd." Hilton's songs have been included on the Grammy Award-winning soundtrack Walk the Line and all three of The CW's One Tree Hill soundtracks of which he also appeared on the show.

Opening the evening will be Los Angeles-based soulful rock band Vintage Trouble. Fronted by CBS' Rockstar:INXS finalist Ty Taylor, Vintage Trouble brings together present day soul tunes in old school packaging. Their debut album The Bomb Shelter Sessions is now available on iTunes.

The Americana at Brand is located in the heart of Glendale and is bound by Brand Boulevard, Central Avenue and Colorado Street. For more information about the concert series, please call The Americana Concierge at: (877) 897-2097 or or
