A four piece, Vancouver-based rock band that was formed at the beginning of 2002. The Twitch showcases a powerhouse combination of talented songwriters and musicians with influences from rock and pop backgrounds. With a kaleidoscope of flair and ability, The Twitch, from Vancouver Canada is what pure pedigree rock is all about.
The Twitch features Joe Kynoch on vocals, Troy Bassett guitars, Lyle Cline on bass and Paul Watson on drums, they bring together the 70’s in a full scale sonic blast to your ears that ROCKS you to your core. The Twitch is nothing but pure “Rock and Roll” from Vancouver Canada. They take the classic spirit of 1971 to 1978 and infuse this classic rock sound in all they do and are. Rocking out and letting free love rule supreme.
As the band say: “ This is the art we love, we all see the Earth, the Moon and the Stars and we are all part of this crazy planet rocking it to the core “. It’s easy to say that these guys are certainly doing what they love and that the love is the best kind that only comes from being part of the best era to be alive, the sixties and seventies!
The Twitch brings their time machine rock to their audience. The message is to have a good time and Rock n’ Roll. They believe that music is meant to be enjoyed and you live through your music and see the world as the band does with a glass of Jack in one hand, some rose coloured glasses on and your music loud. Back to the era before POP and where the immortals such as Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who inspired the young generation of rockers, who then passed down the crown of rock through the generations, passing through to The Twitch where they continue this legacy.
They salute the immortals, drink from the golden cup of Rock and then punish their followers’ senses with “Raw Classic Rockingness.”
Heavily influenced by this era, the band takes their inspiration from the world’s all time internationally renowned bands, including; The Beatles, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith. These guys are a blend of all these legends and more, rolled into one great package called The Twitch. Their songs continue to receive airplay on over 1000 radio stations in over 45 countries.
