Mihali (of Twiddle) solo
Mihali (of Twiddle) solo
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.
Brian Fitzy
Brian Fitzy
Musician. Performance artist.

Blending elements from a variety of genres and decades, Brian Fitzy falls somewhere between Daryl Hall and Jamiroquai by way of A Tribe Called Quest. A vocalist, electric violinist, guitarist, keyboardist, and beat-boxer, he brings these elements together live with looping technology. The result is soul-pop with undertones from the golden age of hip hop.

Brian's post-college career began with a bang when he performed with the Foo Fighters at the Grammy Awards as a Top 3 finalist in the "My Grammy Moment" competition. That performance garnered him support and features from TV stations such as 6ABC, NBC10, and CBS3 in Philadelphia, as well as prime regional radio coverage. Since then, Brian's career has blossomed as a solo artist and a sideman. He's performed everywhere from dives to Madison Square Garden. He's also earned endorsements from Fishman Transducers, Wood Violins, and Westone. In addition, he's had the good fortune of working with bands he grew up admiring such as Rusted Root and members of the Roots Crew.

Brian Fitzy's latest full-length album, "Hard Times For Dreamers" has been described by Paste Magazine as "a record that acts as a breath of fresh air for anyone tired of generic Top 40 radio singles. Hard Time for Dreamers shows an impressive range and an extraordinary amount of potential. It's a wild, diverse ride and well worth a listen."
