Live, organic, real. Steel, wood, and flesh combined never fail to excite. “It’s nice to have something to keep the beat”, Mark said, and it certainly is. While another group might use the kick of a drum machine (and we have nothing against those who do this), Mark elected to use his craftsman’s fingers, and build a stomp box. Wood + Foot = The Beat. Organic.
The members of Stretch have all honed their skills on the stone of Perth’s sterling blues scene, and each member of the group has developed a unique approach to live performance. From the fluid lines of Thorne’s guitar, the solid, dextrous feel of O’Hare’s bottom end, to the whisper to growl to roar of Stringer’s vocals, they never fail to grab an audience’s attention.
