‘Stretch totally captivated, the voice beautiful and soulful. Immediately the place lit up, we finished on our feet, a crowd desperate for more’ - BayBuzz

Stretch has a passion in his performance that sets shows alight. From dark-hearted ballads to roof-raising choruses, his songs are a bittersweet blend of folk, soul and rock’n’roll.

Having performed stunning sets at The Powerstation and Tuning Fork, opened for Damien Rice, Jeff Tweedy, Angus & Julia Stone, plus sold-out headline shows at Church Road Winery and Hawke's Bay Arts Festival; Stretch can be counted as one of New Zealand's most captivating musical talents.

 

'Jaws drop to this sound, a class act from master musicians, we were transported' - The Hook

Now framing this exceptional voice, is the combination of acoustic guitar and the incredible tone of a 300-year-old cello. In the hands of Paula Sugden, her cello sings with grace and power. 
This musical connection has brought audiences to a hush, then left them roaring for more. The combination of mesmerising performance and songwriting lead to being selected to open for Elton John in New Zealand on his last ever tour.   

This beautifully sparse and emotive sound follows on from the album ‘Bury All Horses’ which went Top 10 in the NZ album charts with Stretch being acclaimed for the depth of lyricism in his writing.

 

‘Fine poetic balladry with classic song-writing’ - Graham Reid

With songs from the soul and a sound that transports listeners, this is life affirming music, undeniable in its impact.

‘Stretch had the crowd from the get-go, simply from his powerful performance, another triumphant night' - 13th Floor
