Dwight Twilley, Legendary Power Pop Singer and Songwriter; Talks Leon Russell
In 1974, Dwight Twilley was signed to Shelter Records and returned to his hometown of Tulsa Oklahoma. Once in Tulsa, Twilley and his bandmate, Phil Seymour, recorded at The Church Studio and had great connections and relationships with Leon Russell, Denny Cordell, and artists like Tom Petty. Dwight shares his insight in regards to the public image Leon Russell projected versus who he really was in person as well as his strategy behind his studio in the 1970’s.

My daughter Emily recorded a couple songs at Dwight’s studio several years ago. He was great to work with and a very cool guy. She was only 16 at the time but really enjoyed it. I had an awesome time hearing some great stories about the Tulsa music scene back in the 70’s.
