Stretch

Bio

Alt-country singer/songwriter Stretch has an intensity in his performance that burns up on any given night, throwing down songs with a battle scarred guitar. It’s a heavy folk/kiwi alt-country landscape that hints at Neil Young and Neil Finn hauling up for an almighty after-hours session.

From a rural upbringing in a town that barely makes it onto the map, Stretch was on a musical path from the beginning. Listening to 45’s on a jukebox at the country pub he was too young to be in, picking up guitar chords from his Irish grandmother, and mastering the Maori strum from his dad.

After years of paying heavy dues in various groups and getting chewed up by big city life, Stretch set off on a lone road, with songs from a life-long search to find out where he belongs.

In walking away from a life that didn’t feel true, Stretch has carved out one hell of an independent path. He’s found inspiration in desperation, and learnt that by throwing it all away, you find out if you’ve got what it takes.

The past year has seen no less than 3 national tours, exceptional shows that have earnt rave reviews up and down the country, being filmed for TVNZ, plus recording a rollicking set of live tracks for his EP "The Depot Demos". A year topped off with being asked to open for American songwriting legend Jeff Tweedy of Wilco fame - on his only New Zealand show.

Whether stomping down the house or singing straight to the heart, Stretch empties the tank each time. With a voice that can’t help being soulful and a passion to connect with every audience, he’s making fans the old fashioned way, one true music lover at a time…
