"Songwriters don’t come much better than this.”
- William Dart, Radio NZ
An award-winning singer-songwriter, Reb Fountain teamed up with Dave Khan (Marlon Williams) to produce a profoundly iconic record showcasing Fountain’s noir punk-folk songwriting style. Due for release in 2020 the album features the beautiful first single ‘Faster’ and will be showcased live in October 2019 on a national tour, including festival performances in Tauranga, Hawkes Bay and Gisborne.
Reb won the Tui for Best Country Album/Artist 2018 for her EP Hopeful & Hopeless, APRA Best Country Song 2018 for the title track ‘Hopeful & Hopeless’ and her album Little Arrows was nominated for Best Folk Album of 2018. A pre-eminent singer and performer, Reb has for years been the musicians’ secret. She’s performed and recorded with Neil Finn, Marlon Williams, Don McGlashan, The Eastern, The Warratahs, Finn Andrews, Tami Neilson and Julia Deans. If you were lucky enough to catch her at the recent Neil Young's ‘Live Rust’ tribute concert series or 2019's 'The Others Way' performance that commanded two standing ovations, you know Reb Fountain is a performer not to be missed.
“Reb Fountain is to be counted among our finest songwriters whose imagery is both personal and universal, and her command of a melody and a song transcends genre.”
