Sankaran comments on the new release, “I’m so happy to be giving ‘Moments’ a second life… I originally recorded this song, written by our producer, Jon Weisberger and Andy Hall of the Infamous Stringdusters, on my solo album… I think my own journey reflects the subject material — with more than a decade of hindsight, it takes on a different meaning in thinking about how fleeting time can seem, how the moments of our lives can ‘turn us all around, lift us up or knock us down.’” 

With Unspoken Tradition’s natural authenticity and wistful tunes, there’s little doubt they will be dropping chart-topping releases for years to come.
