Twiddle: Terminal West - Atlanta GA: 04.16.15
Twiddle has released their highly anticipated studio album, PLUMP Chapter One, featuring 11 original songs including fan favorites “Lost In The Cold”, “White Light” and “Syncopated Healing”. The Vermont-based quartet recorded PLUMP in their home state using Kickstarter funding that reached their $20,000 goal in less than 24 hours, eventually doubling that total by the end of the campaign, thanks to their loyal and ever-expanding fanbase.
PLUMP captures the band’s fresh multi-genre approach that conjures up rock, jazz, and bluegrass, but above all, masterfully blends up-tempo reggae with deep grooves, funky baselines and powerful lyrics. PLUMP features guest keyboardist Todd Stoops on the danceable single, “Every Soul”, which can be heard on rotation on SiriusXM Jam On, and saxophonist Kenny Brooks on the lyrically driven track “Be There.”
Dismantling most notions of jam band culture, Twiddle is shooting up the rows of festival lineups and packing prominent theaters around the country. Stay tuned for PLUMP Chapter Two in 2016.

Meeting in the fall of 2004, the founding members of Twiddle immediately recognized creative chemistry. By their second semester at Castleton State University, Mihali Savoulidis and Ryan Dempsey were carefully intertwining harmony and fantasy, birthing band staples like “Frankenfoote” and “Gatsby the Great". Twiddle took Castleton by storm, toured the northeast, and composed a catalog of original music before becoming upperclassmen. 2007 manifested Twiddle’s debut release, The Natural Evolution of Consciousness. This breakout album showcased the band’s eclectic inspirations, imaginative lyrical abilities, and superb instrumentation. Twiddle’s sophomore production, 2011’s Somewhere on the Mountain, delves into the human spirit, speaking to our ambition, grief, and love. Live at Nectar’s (2014), is a double disc live album recorded in August of 2013 at Burlington, Vermont’s Nectar’s. A clear hallmark of their career, Live at Nectar’s truly captures Twiddle in their element, the live experience.
