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 across New Zealand through 2021...
‘Stretch totally captivated, the voice beautiful and soulful. Immediately the place lit up,
we finished on our feet, a crowd desperate for more’ - BayBuzz
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.
Amidst a challenging year, Stretch recorded the exceptional new album
‘Our Dreams Are Changing’. This new music builds on his already impressive songbook. Moving on from the soulful rawness of his solo debut ‘Bury All Horses’, this material has stunned listeners and reviewers with its seductive mix of moody acoustic folk/soul music.
‘If you could embody the phrase “music for our times” then ‘Our Dreams Are Changing’ would be worthy of that description. Conjures up memories of Roy Orbison,
shimmering with bitter-sweetness. 5/5 stars! - Music.Net.NZ
With a sound that transports audiences and a gift for truly original songwriting, this tour is a chance to catch one of New Zealand’s most engaging performers. With songs from the soul and a sound that transports listeners, this is life affirming music, undeniable in its impact.
