City Bisco – Artist Not To Miss: TWIDDLE
Twiddle is a four man jam-band based out of Vermont. Formed in 2004, Twiddle’s music masters complex improvisation by using multiple genres including reggae, funk, jazz, and bluegrass. The band is made up of Mihali Savoulidis (lead vocals/guitar), Ryan Dempsey (keyboard), Brook Jordan (drums/percussion), and Zdenek Gubb (bass).
Twiddle’s first album ‘The Natural Evolution of Consciousness’ was released in 2007. Staple songs on the album include ‘Frankenfoote’ which was one of the first songs written by Savoudlidis and Dempsey while attending Castleton State College. In 2011, the band released their second album ‘Somewhere on the Mountain’ which has my favorite track titled ‘Doinkinbonk!!!’ Both records exhibit impressive instrumentation as well as thoughtful, expressive lyrics which is often missing in many of the current day jam bands.
From constant touring and circuiting the music festival scene, Twiddle is gaining more recognition with each set they play. There is no doubt that by the end of their ‘Nice Crispy Bacon 2013 Fall Tour’, Twiddle will be a must see by jam band fans everywhere.
