Running Stitch

Bio

Running Stitch is the moniker of Helensville based singer/songwriter Aletta Ashdown. Although Running Stitch’s debut EP, It’s On, was only a few months in the making, it’s the culmination of over a decade of writing and performing.

Over the years Aletta has had her fingers in a number of musical pies. In 2012 Aletta performed back-up vocal duties for pop-folk band Cold Harvest Trust lead by Canadian songwriter Andrew Cowie whose New Bones EP was recorded and mixed at Earwig Studios by Flying Nun alumni and one-time 95bFM presenter Darren McShane. It was the Earwig connection that lead to Aletta’s recent involvement in Auckland post punk new wave outfit Superturtle.

As a solo act Aletta regularly attends open mic nights around Auckland including The Portland Public House and The Claire Inn. In the past Aletta has played support slots for Tahuna Breaks and the Phil Edwards band and featured in several live to air performances on Kiwi FM, 95bFM and the now defunct Alt-TV. In 2012 Aletta was a showcased performer at the Bunker Hill Folk Review followed by a stint in the ensemble cast for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Tell Me On A Sunday featuring Carly Binding. Earlier this year Aletta performed with a bunch of other local Rodney musicians at the Muriwai Beach Waitangi Day Festival on the same bill as Tiki Taane, Warren Maxwell and Soljah.

Focus for the time being is on creating awareness of Running Stitch through radio play, ongoing live performance and securing the ever elusive music label support.
