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 the South Island of New Zealand this October.
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
‘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
