Alan Charing Returns with Stitch

Portland, Oregon-based musician Alan Charing is celebrating the release of his first full-length in six years, "Stitch", which follows up A.C. Cotton's "Notes for the Conversation" (Ahab Was Right).

"Stitch" (LazyBone Records) also marks Alan Charing's return to performing under his own name. Originally playing out as Alan Charing, and then The Alan Charing Controversy, Charing eventually decided to call the group A.C. Cotton to give it more of a band feeling.

The result was A.C. Cotton's 2001 debut, "Half Way Down" (Ahab Was Right), followed in 2004 by "Notes for the Conversation" (Ahab Was Right). With "Notes for the Conversation," the band toured the West Coast relentlessly, before Charing decided to take a break from music and work on other endeavors.

Five years in the making, the result is "Stitch", an eleven-track collection of rock 'n' roll that owes as much to Bruce Springsteen as it does The Rolling Stones.

Mixed by Mike Coykendall (M. Ward, Beth Orton, Richmond Fontaine), "Stitch" features members of Uncut Magazine favorites Richmond Fontaine, Laura Gibson's band, and other Northwest musicians to help Charing fill out the collection of roots-tingled, pop-coated Southern rock songs that would make Tom Petty sit back, smoke some weed, and smile.
