STRETCH JOINS SONGBROKER, ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE AND MINI TOUR
Songbroker welcomes Napier based musician Stretch to the fold.
From dark-hearted ballads to roof raising choruses with a boot-stomping backbeat, his songs encompass a NZ folk/rock landscape, somewhere between Highway 61 Revisited and State Highway 2.
His recent debut album Bury All Horses garnered high praise from fans and reviewers alike, with Graham Reid (Elsewhere) describing the release as "fine downbeat and poetic balladry, folk-rock melancholy, straight-up crowd pleasers and classic pop-rock…"
Stretch returns with his new single and video 'Less Rock More Roll', an instantly engaging garage-folk-stomper, captured in one live take at The Lab with producer Wayne Bell. The accompanying video, shot in local Hawkes Bay bar The Common Room, is a quirky black & white stop-motion montage mirroring the dynamic, visceral energy of the song.
Watch 'Less Rock More Roll' here:
This past year has seen Stretch embark on four national tours, earning him a place on the country’s best stages and the support slot for American songwriting legend Jeff Tweedy of Wilco at the Powerstation.
He hits the road once more on a three-date mini Winter tour of Auckland, Wellington and Napier.
Stretch is making fans the old fashioned way, one true music lover at a time.
