Stretch announces new single and mini tour

Stretch has an intensity in his performance that burns up on any given night. From dark-hearted ballads to roof-raising choruses with a boot-stomping backbeat, his songs encompass a NZ folk/rock landscape, somewhere between Highway 61 Revisited and State Highway 2.

His recent debut album Bury All Horses garnered high praise from fans and reviewers alike, with Graham Reid (Elsewhere) describing the release as “fine downbeat and poetic balladry, folk-rock melancholy, straight-up crowd pleasers and classic pop-rock…”

The release of Bury All Horses has also led to Stretch recently signing to NZ based music publisher Songbroker.

Stretch returns with his new single and video ‘Less Rock More Roll’, an instantly engaging garage-folk-stomper, captured in one live take at The Lab with producerWayne Bell. The accompanying video, shot in local Hawkes Bay bar The Common Room, is a quirky black & white stop-motion montage mirroring the dynamic, visceral energy of the song.

This past year has seen Stretch embark on four national tours, earning him a place on the country’s best stages and the support slot for American songwriting legendJeff Tweedy of Wilco at the Powerstation.This tireless troubadour hits the road once more on a three-date mini Winter tour of Auckland, Wellington and Napier.

Stretch has followed a truly independent path, finding inspiration in desperation and captivating audiences with a soulful voice and passion to connect with every listener. Stretch is making fans the old fashioned way, one true music lover at a time.
