Twiddle guitarist and vocalist Mihali Savoulidis has released his debut solo album, Breathe and Let Go, via 11E1even Records.

Mihali has toured relentlessly with Twiddle since 2004, aiding the band with his six-string sorcery and elevating them to massive sold-out shows at some of the country’s most renowned venues, like Red Rocks Amphitheatre and The Capitol Theatre. Now, after a solid two years of work, Mihali’s debut solo album is available on streaming services everywhere.

The album, which chronicles his entire life, collates songs old and new and highlights each side of Mihali’s character. In order to capture the essence of the project, Savoulidis linked up with Eric Krasno (Soulive, Lettuce) in the studio, who pushed Mihali out of his comfort zone. In a press release, Mihali said, “The cohesive sound was a blend of my writing and his production style. There’s a hip-hop influence, mixing live and recorded drums. It’s rhythmic and more produced. I can be a busy guitar player. He got me to play to the vibe of the track rather than play a solo.”

Krasno isn’t the only well-known name credited on the album, though. MatisyahuCitizen Cope, and G. Love all make appearances throughout, and the previously-released single, “Fading State”, features collaborations from Nahko and Trevor Hall.

“Fans joke about it finally coming out, because I’ve been talking about it for ten years,” Savoulidis said. He continued,

My main focus was always Twiddle. I had this sense of wanting to do a record—but the time, resources, and vibe had to be right. The music of Breathe and Let Go reflects what I loved to listen to growing up. Before I got into the jam world, it was raw songwriting that resonated with me. I feel strangely nostalgic listening to the album. It’s my past and my present, but also my future. It’s the first time I’m stepping out. The songs are almost like diary entries. They’re not all about me, but I’ll write from a third-person perspective when it comes to others around me. It’s my song-diary.
