Dwight Twilley is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter considered the Father of Power Pop. Signed to Leon Russell's Shelter Records, Dwight is one of The Church Studio's original 4 consisting of Leon Russell, Dwight Twilley, Tom Petty and JJ Cale, all known for creating the "Tulsa Sound." The first song the Dwight Twilley Band put out in 1975, "I'm On Fire," became his first hit. He followed up with "Girls" in 1984 from his solo record "Jungle" with original label mate Tom Petty. This song also became a big MTV hit.
Dwight left LA after the Northridge earthquake destroyed his house. He returned to Tulsa, where he purchased a home the Twilley's named The Big Oak and built their own studio.
It was then that he really blossomed. He and his wife Jan became an incredible producer and engineering team. Once in full control, Dwight proceeded to create his most brilliant work.
Like a kid in a candy store, he recorded at a frenzied pace. Between 1999-2016, Dwight put out 6 new original albums, a cover album, a Beatles' cover album, a live CD/DVD, an original Christmas collection and a record of unreleased tracks.
"The Best of Dwight Twilley The Tulsa Years 1999-2016 Vol 1" is a collector's dream. It includes tracks from "Tulsa," "The Luck," "47 Moons," "Green Blimp," "Soundtrack" and "Always"
