Gig Information

A personal pick by Jeff Tweedy/Wilco as support act, standing ovations at the Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival and having had Joe Strummer write a song about him (true story), Stretch is a songwriter who lies outside the usual NZ music industry scenes.

His bittersweet blend of country, soul, folk and rock’n’roll comes from a life down roads less travelled. From dark-hearted ballads to roof-raising choruses, his music is alive with a rare magic.

These roads led to the exceptional debut album, ‘Bury All Horses’ which had reviewers citing Ryan Adams, Springsteen and The Veils as sonic touchstones. Songs such as the blazing opener ‘Less Rock More Roll’ and ‘6 Tears’ with its boozy swagger, alternate with raw poetic ballads such as ‘Nothing Can Hurt You’.

Joining him for this show is the incredible cellist Paula Sugden, playing her 300-year-old French cello. The room will resound to the acoustics of these two master musicians. Their chemistry is something special to witness and the up-close-intimacy of Freida Margolis will be a perfect setting.

With a voice that can’t help being soulful and a desire to connect with every listener, Stretch is finding his audience the old-fashioned way, one true music lover at a time.
