Stretch has heart in his performances that simply sets shows alight. Ranging from dark-hearted ballads to roof-raising choruses, his songs are a cathartic blend of folk, soul and rock’n’roll.
Filling seats at Church Road Winery and Hawke's Bay Arts Festival, demonstrating stunning sets at The Powerstation and Tuning Fork, opening for the likes of Damien Rice and Jeff Tweedy; Stretch can be counted as one of New Zealand's finest and most captivating musical talents.
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. Stretch and Paula’s musical connection has brought audiences to a hush, then left them roaring for more. '

Touring their entrancing combination of soulful song-writing and soaring cello, The Chasing Summer Tour runs March through April across New Zealand.
A mission of connection sets Stretch truly apart, earning him a reputation as an artist with the uncommon ability to create a bond with every audience he gets in front of. With this, The Chasing Summer Tour presents an unforgettable night of music and emotion.
