A chance encounter in a bank, now they're ready to steal the show!

We are HatcH. A self recorded and promoted rock quartet formed in the South Island of New Zealand.


After a chance meeting in a bank between drummer Stacey Tapswell and Frontman and lyricist Ewie JC. The words, “do you wanna start a band” were exchanged and HatcH bounced into being in late 2021.


Adding in the superior talent of Liam “The Count” Barnett on Bass and musical wizardry of Travis Brett on the 6 string. HatcH is going from strength to strength and will be releasing music and playing shows throughout 2023.
