With 12 years of relentless touring behind them, Vermont-based rock band Twiddle has built an
impressive resume spanning Red Rocks to Bonnaroo, and multiple sellouts of historic rock
venues including Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre, and Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club. And
with the second half of the band’s third studio album, PLUMP, on the horizon, the band’s career
continues to catapult forward. Buoyed by the generous support of 359 Kickstarter donors, the
27-song album does more than showcase the group’s beautiful music, but also tells an
important story, comprised in PLUMP Chapters 1 & 2.
Recorded during a two-year span with legendary producer Ron St. Germain, PLUMP serves as
a reflection of four brothers’ triumphs and struggles, both individual and as a whole. On Chapter
1, songs like “Lost in the Cold” and “Every Soul” detail what it’s like to hit rock bottom and how
to rise back up.
“So many fans have shared how these songs carried them through very difficult times, and that
alone makes this all worth it,” said Brook Jordan, Twiddle’s percussionist and vocalist.
Comparatively, Chapter 2 contains genre-bending instrumentals, as well as mystifying epics like
“Nicodemus Portulay” and “Orlando’s.” More than ten years later, these songs mirror the
earliest Twiddle arrangements of 2004-2005 when Mihali Savoulidis and Ryan Dempsey were
collaborating in their freshmen dorms at Castleton State College. The completion of PLUMP is
timely, coming at a moment when the band’s fervent fan base is at an all-time high and
expanding rapidly.
In the live setting, more and more people are invigorated by Twiddle’s community, promoting
positivity and the band’s skillful improvisational music. So many like-minded people believe in
the greater good, and they find that good in Twiddle.
Twiddle is comprised of Zdenek Gubb on bass and vocals, Ryan Dempsey on keyboards and
vocals, Mihali Savoulidis on guitar and lead vocals, and Brook Jordan on percussion and vocals.
A more detailed biography of each band member, along with upcoming tour dates and updates,

————————————
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, Somewhere on the Mountain (2011),
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. Live at
Nectar’s truly captures Twiddle in its element, the live experience.
