Twiddle “Moments” Background:
After 359 Kickstarter fans showed their generous support of the 27-song album, the release came to fruition on April 28th after the groups goal of $20,000 was not only reached, but doubled. The album was recorded over a two-year span and includes select tracks re-imagined and re-mixed by legendary producer Ron Saint Germain.
Chapter 1 of the album takes an approach of detailing how to rise back up from hitting rock-bottom as Twiddle’s percussionist/vocalist, Brook Jordan shares that, “so many fans have shared how these songs carried them through very difficult times, and that alone makes this all worth it.”
Comparatively, Chapter 2 contains genre-bending instrumentals with the group showing more of its musical versatility. More than ten years later, these songs mirror the earliest Twiddle arrangements of 2004-2005 when guitarist/vocalist Mihali Savoulidis and bassist/vocalist Ryan Dempsey were collaborating in their freshmen dorms at Castleton State College.
The song we’re featuring is “Moments,” and that can be found as track 4 on Chapter 2. The song is accented by a fun horn section over a bubbly reggae rhythm. The band isn’t a reggae band, necessarily, but they are certain capable of its inclusion as heard with “Moments.”
When asked about the songs inception, Mihali Savoulidis tells The Pier: “We were at the beach in L.A in one of our days off, hanging with some friends. The song was originally titled the ‘LA Beach Song,’ actually. Jack Mitrani from Frendly was there, we had a fire going. The tune just kinda came from that.”

With 12 years of relentless touring behind them, Vermont-based rock band Twiddle has built an impressive resume spanning Red Rocks to Bonnaroo, and multiple sellouts of historic rock venues including Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre, and Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club.
