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.
At the age of 13, Trevor Merrow was a new student at Joseph Badger High School. It was there that he met guitarists Shane Munnell and Tyler Jenkins. To make a long story short, the 3 would play music at every opportunity that presented itself. Jenkins and Merrow would later form a band together, during their senior year of high shool. Meanwhile Munnell was also involved with his own vital role in the band "The Youngstonians". In 2008, Merrow and Jenkins went their seperate ways. Merrow put down the bass, and moved to Cleveland to seek the life of a family man.
Jenkins and Munnell however, were far from ready to give up on their musical talents. Munnell who had resigned from his position with the Youngstonians knew of Jenkins' potential, and wasnt about to let it go to waste. The two of them combined forces, with the addition of Gary Jenkins(bass) to form The Tyler Jenkins Trio. The Trio continue to sell out wineries and local bars for years, and still play to this day.
In 2012, Merrow returned home from Cleveland. And he was determined to start playing music again. The first opportunity that presented itself was playing at a church for hundreds of people. It was there that he met drummer Dante DiLorenzo. The two always thru around the idea of getting together to jam outside of the church, but it wasnt until 2016 when Merrow reunited with Jenkins and Munnell, that Plinko finally came together.
The idea was to casually get together, have some drinks, and improv jam. But when the band realized the potential they had, they started to take their bond more seriously.
After 1 very successful show, Dante was blessed with a newborn baby girl, and shifted his interests towards being a father and a business owner. Plinko and Dante mutually agreed to part ways, and remain great friends to this day.
Drew Siracki auditioned for the band in July of 2017, and after only one practice, became a permanent member.
