        Twiddle

        Twiddle, a Vermont based quartet, spins tall tales over an intricate soundscape of hi-def shred. Their fresh multi-genre approach conjures up jazz, classical, and bluegrass, but above all, masterfully blends reggae and funk. Obliterating laws of improvisation, their complex arrangements never fail to leave crowds lusting for more. With sage songwriting and unmatched variety, Twiddle’s thrilling infancy continues to exceed all expectation. After whimsically jamming in the fall of 2004, the founding members of Twiddle immediately recognized chemistry and a common seriousness. By the second semester at Castleton State, Mihali Savoulidis and Ryan Dempsey were already intertwining harmony and fantasy, birthing Twiddle staples like ‘Frankenfoote’ and ‘Gatsby the Great’. Brook Jordan, and Billy Comstock, Twiddle’s original bassist, complemented these melodies with a densely layered, and exciting funk rhythm This young foursome had taken Castleton by storm, toured the northeast, and composed an impressive catalog of original tunes before becoming upper-classmen.

          David Bazan + Passenger String Quartet

          The seed for this album was planted during a one-off show back in 2012. Bazan was invited to play a show in Tacoma WA with the Passenger String Quartet. PSQ leader Andrew Joslyn put together string arrangements for 4 songs and it was an enjoyable evening for all. They immediately began talking about doing it again and eventually started talking about making proper studio recordings of these songs. But it took nearly two years for everyone’s schedules to line up again. In February 2014, they were able to spend a week at Avast! studio in Seattle tracking a collection of 10 songs pulled from Pedro The Lion, Headphones and Bazan solo albums. Long time friend and Bazan collaborator Chris Colbert recorded, mixed and mastered the album. Chris’s no nonsense approach and years of friendship helped bring things into focus and they were able to record the entire album in just a few days.

          With the release of the album they will be touring all across the USA in October and November playing in clubs, small theaters and cathedrals.

          David Bazan was, for many years, the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed band Pedro the Lion, building a dedicated following and selling a couple hundred-thousand albums. After a decade helming the project, he found himself embroiled in a major personal philosophical and spiritual cataclysm, wrapped in a growing drinking problem. Bazan got to work exorcizing both his demons and angels, ditching the Pedro moniker in favor of his given name. He’s released the Fewer Moving Parts EP (2006) and two full-length albums, Curse Your Branches (2009), Strange Negotiations (2011) under his own name.

          The Passenger String Quartet is an avant-garde, experimental neo-classical group, formed by Northwest composer/violinist Andrew Joslyn. The group is in high demand as studio session musicians, tours & performs original compositions, as well as backs a wide variety of regional, and national touring groups from DJ Spooky, Suzanne Vega, to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Ivan and Alyosha, Kris Orlowski, Doug Martsche, and many more.

            Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors

            Some artists are able to articulate a vision at the very beginning of their career, while others hone their craft over time, growing into their vision as they mature.

            “I am definitely in the latter category,” explains Drew Holcomb, a Tennessee-born, duck hunting, bourbon drinking, 1st edition book collecting, golf playing Eagle Scout with a Masters degree in Divinity from Scotland’s University of St Andrews (he wrote his dissertation on “Springsteen and American Redemptive Imagination”) who has spent the better part of the past decade as a professional musician – recording, writing, and touring with his band Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors.

            Since releasing their first album, 2005’s Washed In Blue, Drew & The Neighbors (Ellie Holcomb, Nathan Dugger, Rich Brinsfield) have established themselves as a formidable indie act, selling more than 75,000 records, playing more than 1,500 live dates, selling-out headline shows, and touring alongside such varied acts as The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos, NEEDTOBREATHE, Susan Tedeschi, North Mississippi Allstars, Marc Broussard, and more. Their songs have been used in countless television shows and commercials, most notably in TNT’s Emmy Award winning 2011 Christmas Day NBA Forever spot, which paired the song Live Forever with a mesmerizing montage of past and present NBA video footage.

            The hard work has paid off with the band’s sixth album Good Light showcasing Drew’s signature brand of singer/songwriter Americana in its finest form yet. Recorded live at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Good Light arrives shortly following Drew’s 30th birthday and the birth of his first child, daughter Emmylou (named for – you guessed it – Emmylou Harris), with wife and band-mate Ellie Holcomb. I think about my daughter every time I sing the title track, how I want to sing it over her when she is old enough to start understanding the world of truth and consequence,” says the Memphis native who now calls Nashville home.

            “This album perfectly tells the story for a new stage in my life,” explains Drew “On past albums I was searching for my voice, both literally and figuratively. I co-wrote a lot of songs, peppered the music with too many influences, and let too many other voices in my head.”

            With this album, Drew dedicated himself to the process of songwriting, stripping away extra layers, ridding himself of past boundaries and expectations. He wrote more than 40 songs for Good Light, mostly alone on his 1934 Gibson Archtop, eventually whittling the selections down to a final 12 tracks.

            Drawing from personal experience to craft songs that speak to all of us, Drew explores the universal need to find meaning and joy in the midst of heartbreak and disappointment throughout Good Light. The last song on the album Tomorrow opens with the lyric, ‘Nothing ever turns out like you thought it would.’ It’s a theme that permeates the album.

            “I have been through really difficult things,” Drew continues. “When I was 17, I lost my younger brother, and have lived through the grief of that great absence. On the other hand, I have experienced the joy of being married to the girl I always wanted, and have been loved really well by her…Everyone has all these different ingredients; our geography, our family, our interests, the places we have been and the places we long to see, the loves we have found and the loves we have lost. Each of us has a story, and it’s the only one we can tell. With this album I’m telling my story, in the hope that it helps other people tell theirs.”

              Split Lip Rayfield

              The Kansas-based post-punk progressive bluegrass outfit Split Lip Rayfield was comprised of vocalist/banjoist David Lawrence, guitarist/dobroist Kirk Rundstrom, and one-string bassist Jeff Eaton, whose instrument was fashioned from the gas tank of a 1965 Ford. An outgrowth of the group Scroat Belly (though it didn't take long for them to outlive the band that spawned them), the trio debuted in 1998 with a self-titled LP issued on the Bloodshot label. In the Mud followed a year later; by this time, singer and mandolin player Wayne Gottstine had expanded the lineup to four pieces and Eric Mardis had replaced Lawrence on banjo. The new millennium saw the release of a third effort, Never Make It Home, which arrived in stores in late 2000. After three years of touring, which saw the group opening for everyone from Del McCoury to Nashville Pussy, Split Lip Rayfield recorded and released a fourth long-player, Should Have Seen It Coming, in 2004. In early 2006, Rundstrom (who had also released a few solo records) was diagnosed with cancer. He continued to perform with the band for months as he fought and underwent treatment, but Rundstrom ultimately succumbed to the disease in February 2007, just about a week after playing what would be his last show. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

                              The Devil Makes Three is an American band. They formed and remain based in Santa Cruz, California. They play a brand of acoustic music known to some as folk punk. It encompasses a blend of bluegrass, old time music, country, folk, blues, ragtime, and rockabilly. The group's members are guitarist Pete Bernhard, upright bassist Lucia Turino, and guitarist and tenor banjo player Cooper McBean.
                              Career

                              The band has released four full-length albums. They independently released a self-titled album in 2002. Another independent release followed in 2004, Longjohns, Boots, And A Belt. The band recorded two shows in April 2006 in Felton, California with guest fiddler Chojo Jacques. The recordings were later released as a live album, A Little Bit Faster And A Little Bit Worse.

                              After the release of their live album, the band signed with independent label Milan Records, which specializes in film scores and soundtracks. Their first album on Milan was a re-release of their debut album, The Devil Makes Three. In 2009, they followed with an all-new album, Do Wrong Right.

                              Joe Pug

                              “If my thoughts are hard to gather
                              if I don’t know where to start
                              it ain’t my mind that matters
                              for I have an unsophisticated heart.”
                              — Joe Pug, “Unsophisticated Heart”
                              For the moment, Joe Pug has it figured out, career if not life: Just write the songs that have to be written,
                              play them for anybody who will listen, tour as if you had no home. Oh, and give your music away. Which
                              isn’t to say he won’t be selling his debut full-length offering, Messenger (released 2/16/2010 on Lightning
                              Rod). But free is how he came to make it, more or less.
                              It worked like this, for Joe Pug anyhow: The day before his senior year as a playwright student at the
                              University of North Carolina, he sat down for a cup of coffee and had the clearest thought of his life: I am
                              profoundly unhappy here. Then came the second clearest.
                              Pug packed up his belongings and pointed his car towards Chicago. Working as a carpenter by day, the 23
                              year-old Pug spent nights playing the guitar he hadn’t picked up since his teenage years. Using ideas
                              originally slated for a play he was writing called “Austin Fish,” Pug began creating the sublime lyrical
                              arrangements that would become the Nation of Heat EP.
                              The songs were recorded fast and fervently at a Chicago studio where a friend snuck him in to late night
                              slots other musicians had canceled. He was short on money, but his bare-boned sincerity didn’t require
                              much more than a microphone and it dripped off of each note he sang.
                              The early rumblings of critical praise for the EP were confirmed when his first headlining gig sold out
                              Chicago’s storied Schubas Tavern in 2008. As word spread, Pug struck upon an idea that would later prove
                              to be one of the most significant in his young career. He offered his existing fans unlimited copies of a free
                              2-song sampler CD to pass along to their friends. He sent the CDs out at his own expense, even covering
                              the postage. Inside each package was a personal note thanking the fan for helping to spread the word. The
                              response was overwhelming, and to date he has sent out over 15,000 CDs to 50 states and 14 different
                              countries. Without access to radio, Pug managed to turn his fans into his very own broadcast system. The
                              offer still stands, and to this day it’s featured prominently on www.joepugmusic.com.
                              “Look, in the end, I just trust my fans, and the nature of people in general. I need to pay my bills like
                              anyone else does. But I also don’t think it’s right to ask someone to pay $15 when they don’t know what
                              they’re getting. So in a way by sending out these CDs, I’m wagering that they’ll like my music, and that if
                              they do they’ll come to shows, buy CDs, and help me spread the word even further. And so far I’ve been
                              proven right. Without question, the more sampler CDs I send out, the more music I sell.”
                              Nation of Heat took on a life of its own, passing from friend to friend and iPod to iPod. The crowds swelled
                              and the media took notice. Tours with Steve Earle, M. Ward, and Josh Ritter followed, as did invitations to
                              Lollapalooza and the Newport Folk Festival. He crisscrossed the country incessantly, traveling mostly
                              alone in his 1995 Plymouth Voyager with no stereo or air conditioning. As the tours went on, he became
                              closely linked to the burgeoning indie-folk scene that was coalescing loosely around Pug and his young
                              contemporaries in bands such as The Low Anthem, Langhorne Slim, and Horse Feathers.
                              After over 200 shows, Pug took a brief respite to record his full-length debut. If Nation of Heat heralded the
                              arrival of a talent to watch, Messenger assigns Pug a deserved spot among the finest songwriters of his
                              generation. From the opening notes of the title track that leads off the record, it’s clear that the artist has no
                              intention of retreating to the comfortable or the familiar. While the scathing war indictment “Bury Me Far
                              (From My Uniform)” and the sparse, poetic “Unsophisticated Heart” illustrate that Pug is still a master of
                              the guy-and-guitar song, it’s the supporting cast Pug brought on board that truly brings out the record’s
                              subtle beauty.
                              From the haunting, ethereal pedal steel guitar that sneaks delicately under “The Sharpest Crown” to the
                              barrelhouse rhythm section that propels “The Door Is Always Open”, it’s clear that Pug is as comfortable
                              exploring this new territory as he is solo. “The first record, it was a breeze,” he says. “Didn’t even know we
                              were making it, just me and a guitar…the songs completely unadorned. This one, it’s like that thing where
                              there’s an explosion and you realize how many options there are in the world.”
                              With his debut album now released, the options only get more numerous for the 25 year-old-singer. The
                              remainder of 2009 was spent touring Europe before he returned home to hit the road in support of
                              Messenger.
