Chadwick Stokes & the Pintos

Chadwick Stokes & the Pintos

Chadwick Stokes is an accomplished musician and songwriter who grew up on a small farm outside of Boston. A songwriter since early adolescence, his many projects have woven together music, art, history and activism. From Dispatch, which he started in his early 20s; to his politically driven band, State Radio; to his nascent solo project, Chadwick Stokes and the Pintos, Chad has committed himself to using music as a vehicle for social and political change. Along with his wife, Sybil, he founded Calling All Crows, a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging music fans around women's issues both at home and abroad. They’ve worked to bring awareness to the worldwide refugee crisis, to the proliferation of violence against women and to the persistence of sexual violence within the music industry. Through his many years of working independently within what can be a difficult industry, Chadwick has been continually motivated by his love of music and the people he makes it with.

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.
“I’ve been struggling for way way too long
It’s time for a change I’m ready to move on.
And, yes, I’m scared to right all my wrongs.
But I’ll be ok- I’m stronger than I thought.”
– Lost in the Cold
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. Mihali currently resides in the green mountains of
Vermont, where he’s lived since he met his brothers in Twiddle in 2004.
When not on tour he can usually be found writing music in the company and of
his pride and joy, his wife, daughter, and three golden retrievers.
