Still Need You:
-Great blues
This has a trade mark of great blues and rock mixed together. I like the use of hammond organ as not too many bands use it anymore. Stunning. Reviewed by: VASK from Windsor, Ontario, Canada on 24Aug2007 - garageband.com

After finishing Second in the Spring 2008 Battle of The Bands, The Stitch returned to Albany in October 2008 to take First Place. Winners are decided by audience votes and judges scoring. Over 15 great bands competed in the Fall 2008 competition but The Stitch were the crowd and judges favorite. - Jillian's of Albany


Based out of Elmira, The Stitch got together first jamming in college, and are now are busy playing the club circuit in the northeast.

Produced by Stephen McLaughlin, the Stitch’s “Hello Welcome” features Nick Molak (guitars, vocals, banjo, harmonica) Brendan Tompkins (drums) and Dan Weaver (bass, piano, organ).

The sunny summer day feel of “Ferris Wheel” starts things off here with Molak’s capable voice in the forefront. He really stretches out on the guitar in “Spin Me Around” and that’s where he really expresses himself with his soulful style.

The recording is bare-bones basic with little overdubs, but the band doesn’t need bells and whistles to get its point across.

The Stitch’s “Hello Welcome” shows a promising band on the horizon to be sure - Daily Freeman

Bio

The band came together in the basement of an Elmira College dorm. Nick Molak, guitar and vocals. Dan Weaver, bass. Brendan Tompkins, drums. Their influences collided and bent and then blended together: Hendrix, The Band, DMB, Dylan, Phish, Govt. Mule, all served up in a chilled glass of cool.

The songs never remain the same. The Stitch live is another chance to reinterpret and reinvent the compositions, inserting a new lick, a new riff, a new bass line, and then letting the rest of the band follow along. Trading guitar and drum solos like bursts of machine gun fire with the bass driving the train down the track. Finding a way to take the jam into another new dimension, dropping songs seamlessly together then circling back.

The Stitch. Fresh, innovative rock and roll: a garage band that brews up a fresh new mix every night and a jam band that always finds a way home.

The new CD, “Hello Welcome,” was recorded in a small NYC studio in just three days. The intensity of the recording session helped capture the spirit of The Stitch live. The songs on the CD are a snapshot, captured at a point in time with an incredible energy that serves as an invitation to catch The Stitch live. When a band loves what they do, the crowd feeds on it, thrives on it, grooves on it. That’s The Stitch.
