Dwight Twilley (born 6 June 1951) is an American pop/rock singer and songwriter, best known for the Top 20 hit singles "I'm on Fire" (1975) and "Girls" (1984). Twilley and Phil Seymour performed as the Dwight Twilley Band through 1978, and Twilley has performed as a solo act since then.
After the demise of the Dwight Twilley Band, Twilley continued as a solo act, keeping Pitcock on lead guitar and adding Susan Cowsill on harmony vocals. This lineup released the album Twilley for Shelter in 1979
His next album, Blueprint, co-produced by Jack Nitzsche, was rejected by Arista after the failure of the 1979 single "Somebody to Love" although it was assigned an Arista release number. Blueprint ultimately was never released.
In November 2014, Twilley released his "Always" album through Big Oak Records. The 12-song LP features an array of appearances from power-pop and rock'n'roll musicians like Ken Stringfellow, Timm Buechler and Mitch Easter.
