Feeling a bit camera shy


Nearing the end of their stint in a previous band, Rich and Sean began writing material that was again and again denied acceptance by their band-mates. Rather than give up on the new material, they left and began writing freely without scrutiny. Basing their style around what they knew- less is more, they laid the groundwork for what STITCH is today. Taking the stance that though being flashy is fun, there is usually a lack of substance that coincides with it. Strip it down and let the real music shine through. Heavy grooves, catchy riffs and deliberately simplifying arrangements give them the sound that not only grabs one's attention, but demands it.

After a few months of writing as a two piece, David stepped away from his solo writing and stepped in on the bass. His background being from "left field" so to speak, he was the perfect fit. Never being caught up in what "should" be played he complimented the sound rather than blend in and water it down. After a chance meeting at Rich and David's brother Adam's house, Vinnie was brought in for an audition. Another member with a diverse background, and a style all his own. Three weeks later, with the lineup complete, they ran through a few songs for fun at a local open mic night. After their three "prepared" songs, they were requested/demanded to continue and free-styled the remaining five. They were booked at the venue the following week and have not looked back since.

Making no attempts to sound like what's hot, and ignoring the competitive bullshit that goes on, they wrote what was natural, and the kind of music they want to hear. Recently described as a band that wears their influences on their sleeves, they do so with pride and conviction. They do it their way and make no apologies for it.

STITCH began as a "one finger salute" to the "watered down/try to be somebody you're not" local scene in Detroit. Relying solely on their original material, ignoring the mainstream, the writing just for a deal, and the critics that claimed they were too "stripped down" they have against all odds, forever changed the sound of Detroit and what the Motor City scene has to offer.
