The Twisters are a Canadian Jump/Swing/Blues/Roots band. Founded in 1994 by harmonica player/vocalist Dave "Hurricane" Hoerl, (originally from San Francisco) they have recorded 4 albums with another one on the way. Signed to the NorthernBlues label in 2006, their debut album for the label is After The Storm. Brandon Isaak, guitarist/vocalist for the band is from Whitehorse, Yukon. He is an exceptional songwriter, and both Brandon and Dave are the principal songwriters as well as vocalists for the Twisters. Most of their material is original. Their signature sound is guitar and harmonica weaving in and out, and they usually trade lead vocals as well as sing harmonies. Joined on upright bass by Keith Picot, an exceptionally talented slap/swing player and Lonnie Powell on the drums, The Twisters are known as Canada's top jump/swing blues band, and their forthcoming album on the NorthernBlues label, "Come Out Swingin' " to be released in 2009, will expand their rootsy sound and material to include some reggae, R&B, and Gospel, along with swing and blues.
