Twiddle, known for their epic live performances, have been recording and performing together since 2004 when the original members met at Castleton State College in Vermont.  Since that time they have excelled within the diverse Jam Band scene through their Reggae/Dub infused sound that also touches upon Jazz, Blues, Psychedelia, and good old fashion Rock ’n’ Roll.  Twiddle performs in front of tens of thousands of fans at venues all over the United States.  They finished 2016 with multiple head lining performances in front of capacity crowds in Philadelphia PA, Port Chester NY, Boston MA, Portland ME, and Albany NY.

Twiddle’s first release for SRG will be the completion of the their ambitious Plump project.  The new release will include Chapter 1 which was launched in December 2015 alongside the highly anticipated Plump – Chapter 2 in a deluxe double CD and LP release.  SRG has secured legendary producer Ron Saint Germain (Bad Brains, Sonic Youth, 311) to work with the band and production team to complete the collection which will be released in early spring 2017.

Claude Villani founder of SRG and Senior VP at the ILS Group states, “We are very excited to have such a diverse and exciting band as Twiddle on our roster.  The following they have built is truly impressive, and we intend to reenforce their music and message with their current fans and introduce them to new fans through extensive retail, radio and press marketing”

“The band is excited and proud to work with SRG to release the final double disc version of PLUMP.  They speak our language, have a passionate team going to bat for us, and genuinely believe in the path we’re blazing.”  Kevin Rondeau: Manager, Twiddle

“Claude Villani runs a highly regarded independent label, which is exactly what we have been waiting for.  I’m excited about SRG’s history of success, but even more so their confidence in our dynamic sound, and it’s potential to reach many more ears in 2017 and beyond.”   Mihali Savoulidis:  Lead Guitar and Vocals, Twiddle

“We took our time getting to know everyone at the Sono Record Group, which is why we’re signing this deal.  They’re taking a risk on our album most labels wouldn’t, and that says a lot to me.  The success of SRG speaks for itself, and I know I am personally really pumped about everything that lies ahead.” Zdenek Gubb:  Bass and Vocals, Twiddle

Eliot Lewis Talks New Solo Release, Hall and Oates Band, Live From Daryl’s House

Check out this great interview with Eliot Lewis via On Stage Magazine. Between touring with Hall & Oates and being part of Live From Daryl’s House, Eliot Lewis just released his new solo CD “Adventure”. Visit the link for the full interview.


When you meet Alice Cooper backstage at Madison Square Garden at the age of eleven…

Follow that up with a weekly ritual of being backstage for The Who, Elton John, and a host of others, the natural progression would be at the age of fourteen to jam with Peter Frampton at your friend’s house, right?

Well, apparently that was just another day in the early life of Eliot Lewis, and ever since his musical career has just kept building on those experiences.

These days Eliot Lewis can be found playing keyboards with the Hall & Oates band, as well as interacting with legendary musicians and hot new artists of every genre on the Live From Daryl’s House broadcast. Artists ranging from John Oates, Smokey Robinson, The O’Jays, Cheap Trick, Aaron Neville, Billy Gibbons, Grace Potter, Todd Rundgren, Amos Lee, Elle King, Joe Walsh, Keb’ Mo’ and dozens of others have made the trek originally to Daryl’s home and now to his successful club in Pawling NY. There they get to hang out with Daryl and the band, talk a little, eat a little, and make some fine, fine music. And Eliot Lewis has been there for each one of the 82 episodes. Oh, to be a fly on the wall.

After spending some time as a songwriter with a couple of publishing deals, Eliot spent thirteen years as a key member of the Average White Band. A little while after leaving AWB, Eliot Lewis began working on Daryl Hall’s solo tour and soon after joined the Hall & Oates band.

A multi-instrumentalist, Eliot Lewis has released several solo albums including his latest, Adventure. As he prepares for the Adventure release party this Sunday January 1st, Eliot took the time to speak with Onstage in depth about what has been a most interesting musical career.

You won’t believe what Brian McKnight has been doing in Vegas!

Award-winning multi-talented R&B singer, songwriter and producer Brian McKnight stopped by The Steve Harvey Show recently treating show goers to a glimpse at his new album “An Evening With”, and tells the background story of a video that recently went viral, featuring Brian crashing people’s weddings in Vegas to perform.

Eliot Lewis’ “Adventure” has fans and critics pleased!

Eliot Lewis’ new album “Adventure” was recently released with fans and critics already calling it a classic. Check out this excellent review from Back Stage Axxess and don’t forget to pick up a copy in the SRG webstore.

via Back Stage Axxess:
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eliot Lewis has performed with a cross-section of the greatest musicians of the modern era, literally too many to list in a short write-up. While Lewis has made his mark as a collaborator and more recently as a member of the Hall and Oates touring band and as part of Hall’s “Live from Daryl’s House” band, Lewis is also an accomplished solo artist.

eliot lewis adventureRecently Lewis released “Adventure,” an 11 song disc filled with more hooks than your grandfather’s fishing tackle box. Combine that with a solid vocal performance and you have what may be the best album you share with your friends this year.

Eliot Lewis is usually found parked behind the keyboards when he is playing with Hall, which may make fans expecting  a keyboard heavy album pleasantly surprised at how well Lewis plays guitar.

Thematically the songs are a celebration of life and music with a peppering of boy meets girl songs. A glance at the titles and they seem to capture the tenacity with which Lewis has pursued his solo career, “We’re In it Together”, “Adventure” and “Crusade” and “Evolution” are some of the titles that fall in that category.

While one might expect “Adventure” to rely heavily on the soulful sounds of Hall and Oates, it is a rock album at it’s heart with the feel and sensibility of a great pop album seasoned with boogie blues and funk.

Of the ten originals, there is no filler, which is a rarity these days. It’s tough to pinpoint the standout tracks, but “Soundtrack” is a personal favorite because the rhythm reminds me of classic AC/DC and the lyrics speak to everyone that has grown up listening to and loving music.

“Tattoo” is simply fun, it’s a toe-tapper that must be great to hear live. “Crusade” has been on a previous release, and it seems at home on this full length album.

Fans of what is now dubbed “classic rock” will undoubtedly love this album, as will fans of great music performed on real instruments.
