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 four 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 Twilleys 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.

Between 1999 and 2016, Dwight put out six new original albums, a covers album, a Beatles covers album, a live CD/DVD, a Christmas collection and a record of unreleased tracks.
