On Friday, May 11, prolific performer Ty Taylor collaborated with the team behind LA's hit series "For The Record" to debut his new solo album Nouveau Mid-Century Romance Songbook. Taylor, best known as the lead singer of classic soul and rock 'n' roll band Vintage Trouble, will light up the stage at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills for this official album release concert along with special guests Matthew Morrison, Tracie Thoms, Brenna Whitaker and Chris Pierce. Directed by Anderson Davis, the evening will kick off with a Jazz showcase from exceptional artists including Spencer Day, Olivia Kuper Harris, Myles Nuzzi and Dylan Meek and will be followed by Taylor's collection of modernistic tracks inspired by mid-century jazz standards.

Taylor began singing in his Baptist church choir at five years old and later went on to graduate from Carnegie Mellon University. Over his illustrious career, Taylor has sung and toured with artists including The Rolling Stones, Celine Dion, Dixie Chicks, Bruno Mars, Lenny Kravitz, Bon Jovi, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Macy Gray, Fiona Apple, Paloma Faith, Joss Stone, Willie Nelson, The Who, Dave Navarro and AC/DC. Additionally, Taylor appeared on the cast recording of Jason Robert Brown's 'Songs for a New World' and has appeared on Broadway in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (only African American to ever play title role of 'Joseph' on Broadway) and Grease. With his band Vintage Trouble, Taylor has appeared on Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The View, Conan, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! as well as at major festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Glastonbury. Most recently, Taylor served as the voice of character Lester Grimes on the HBO series Vinyl created by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger and has two songs, "Cha Twist" and "The World Is Yours" featured on VINYL: MUSIC FROM THE HBO® ORIGINAL SERIES - VOLUME 1.
