On Tour - July 2021
Renowned for unforgettable performances and his connection with audiences, acclaimed singer/songwriter ‘Stretch’ is stripping back the production and presenting a series of intimate solo shows on the ‘Last Call for The Road’ tour.
From dark-hearted ballads to roof-raising choruses, Stretch has a passion that sets shows alight. This sound has seen him open for some of the world’s greatest songwriters; Damien Rice, Jeff Tweedy, Angus & Julia Stone and Elton John... Stretch is an artist that plays his heart out, whether it’s opening at Mission Estate to 20,000, bringing the Hawke’s Bay Opera House to a standing ovation, or filling the room with that same energy up close at his solo shows.
With a seductive mix of moody acoustic folk/soul music and a gift for truly original songwriting, this tour is a chance to catch one of New Zealand’s most engaging performers up close...
'Stretch held an audience in his hands for the next couple of hours, performing in the ultimate stripped-back format. Get along and witness this latest stage in the evolution of a truly great talent from right here on our own doorstep.’ – Rob Harbers / Ambient Light
This tour follows on from the stunning album launch of the new album 'Our Dreams Are Changing'. This premiered at the Hawke's Bay Arts Festival alongside performances by Troy Kingi, Tami Neilson and Bic Runga. With songs from the soul and a sound that transports listeners, this is life affirming music, undeniable in its impact.
‘Intense and soul driven, these are songs that reverberate in the chest and wrap themselves around the heart.’ - Rosheen Fitzgerald / Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival
