STEPHEN RIDGWAY- Stephen is Twisted Whiskey's co-lead guitarist and vocalist. He was born in England but moved to Tempe Arizona at a very young age. His love for music started with all the British influence in his parents' household - Beatles , The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.  Growing up in Arizona he really got his taste for Country, Rockabilly and Punk Rock. Stephen started his musical career as a bassist in several local original bands around Tempe. In 1999 he moved to Georgia where he bought his first Fender Telecaster and found the drive to play again. As a result he met the guys in Twisted Whiskey and joined the band in 2010.  Stephen's playing style has become an integral part of the TW sound - from live shows to studio sessions he has the phenomenal ability to always bring awesome textured tones and groovy rhythmic style to each performance. He enjoys the brotherhood-like atmosphere of the band and says " If I could bottle the chemistry of this band I would drink it " .

Steve Gore
– As one of the early members of Twisted Whiskey having joined the band for the first time  in 2011, those hard thumping Bass lines he was lying down were sure to be a great fit.  As a relative newcomer to the Georgia music scene, Steve has brought his own combination of taste and groove to the stage. Steve began his musical training at an early age studying piano, trumpet, guitar and baritone. At sixteen he realized that playing the bass was his true musical calling. From there, he went on to play with numerous local, original, and cover bands in the Maryland and Atlanta areas.  His slick bass lines combined with his (I’m gonna have a good time no matter what) attitude simply makes him the perfect fit for Twisted Whiskey!
