After compelling performances at the sold-out Festival show in 2017 with The Boy Next Door: a celebration of Nick Cave, and touring the world, Reb Fountain returns to New Zealand and the festival for a premiere of material from her third highly anticipated self-titled album to be released in early 2020.
An award-winning singer songwriter Reb teamed up with Dave Khan (Marlon Williams) to produce a profoundly iconic record showcasing Fountain’s noir punk-folk song writing style.
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.
“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.” - Graham Reid, Elsewhere
