“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.”

“So… anything interesting happen since the last Almanac? We kid, of course! 2015 has been among the most eventful and memorable years in the still-unfolding history of the Grateful Dead and the extended family of Dead Heads — a year that brought to a close one phase of that history, but simultaneously opened up a realm of infinite possibilities for the future; a year in which the importance and influence of the Dead was acknowledged and honored around the world, and interest in the band reached what may well be an all-time high.”
Arise Music Festival 2015 took place August 7th-9th at the Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, CO. The 2015 lineup featured: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Joe Russo, Larry Keel, Lukas Nelson, Rising Appalachia, Sister Sparrow, Trevor Hall, and many more.
