Mihali (of Twiddle)
Mihali Savoulidis is the lead singer and guitarist for Vermont rock quartet, Twiddle. Barely 30 years old, the Jersey native has already drawn crowds at such notable rock shrines as Red Rocks, The Capitol Theatre and Bonnaroo. Twiddle’s fan base is growing rapidly, and Mihali’s signature vocals and guitar work are more than partly responsible for this undeniable momentum.
Most laud Mihali for his dexterity on guitar, but it’s his lyrics and songwriting capabilities which set his solo act apart. It is the soul of what many hope to find in a solo act. His mastery of pedals, specifically the repetitive phenomena known as “looping,” beat boxing, and guitar riffs, all prep a multi-textured canvas for song. Mihali’s words are genuine. Shaped by his journey through grief and redemption, he writes songs that serve as a light to many who find themselves lost in their own darkness.
Inspired by artists including Kurt Cobain, Bradley Nowell and Bob Marley, Mihali’s music carries a passionate intent for good. During his twelve years with Twiddle, Mihali has shared the stage with members of Phish, Blues Traveler, Big Gigantic, Matisyahu, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall and jammed with his all-time favorite guitar player, Jamaican reggae legend, Ernest Ranglin, just to name a few.
Tim Palmieri has made a name for himself as one of the most impressive guitarists on the national music scene today. His dynamic career has been enriched by touring with Kung Fu, The Breakfast, internationally with The Z3, playing alongside artists such as Phish’s Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman, Oteil Burbridge, Snarky Puppy, Soulive, Umphrey’s McGee, Vic Wooten, Fareed Haque, Robbie Kreiger, Jeff Pevar, Stanley Jordan, Melvin Sparks, Karl Denson, Bill Evans, Ed Mann, Ike Willis, Stephen Perkins, Jon Harrington, Bernard Purdie, and teaching lessons in the New England area as well as nationally online.
Tim’s loyal following hails his strong presence in the jam scene on the East Coast, which he works tirelessly to maintain. Always growing as a solo performer, his solo acoustic shows are peppered with a mix of thoughtful originals, classic covers, and unexpected rarities, each of which he makes his own through a distinctive style of rhythmic looping.
He continues to expand his musical abilities through his many projects; the most active being Kung Fu, a funk fusion super group where Tim is free to showcase his incredible talent as a true master of his craft. Kung Fu blends jazz and rock, while embracing the groove of funk and electronic dance styles. Stepping up with The Breakfast for the past 20+ years and 1400+ shows, brings Tim back to his roots of original compositions, genre blending progressive rock’n roll mixed with a transcendental jamming style. He also is shredding the stage with The Z3, a Frank Zappa tribute arranged for a funk boogaloo organ trio while capturing the essence of Frank’s humor and musical playfulness.
On and off the road, he is constantly pushing the limits on his technique through challenges such as covering the entire Beatles catalogue in alphabetical order, paying tribute to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Santana, building new supergroups like Hellzapoppin, Seapig, and constantly teaching the art of guitar, music theory, and composition.
Tim’s avid fans hunger for the next time their favorite guitarist takes the stage and rocks them with another face melting performance. Fans keep tabs on just about every note and they urge you to do the same!
Look forward to big things!
