Singer/songwriter Stretch is releasing his sophomore album Our Dreams are Changing on 1 October, following the critically acclaimed debut album Bury All Horses. Framing his dark-hearted ballads and roof-raising choruses is Paula Sugden's 300-year old cello.
Praise for Bury All Horses: "Fine poetic balladry with classic song-writing" Graham Reid elsewhere.co.nz
The album was made in July 2020, within a two-week period between lockdowns in The Lab Studios, Auckland, with producer Wayne Bell at the helm, teasing out bare and intimate performances from Stretch and his accompanying musicians. All recording was done in one intense week, with vocals for the album completed in two highly productive days.
The intimacy of the recording is immediate and lingers long after first playthrough. This album is a search for how to be in the world while being true to yourself, but the power of Stretch’s emotive songwriting is forever a connecting factor, revealing the intricacies of our shared humanity.
Our Dreams are Changing is due for release on October 1st via all good digital outlets. CDs will be available from selected record stores and live shows.
