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”

“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.
