Reb sailed into Lyttelton Harbour carrying generations of migrant stories imbued in her bones. She has spent forever travelling, performing, studying, recording & working as a musician & songwriter who’s not afraid to get her $20 ex-army boots muddy as hell walkin’ to the next town for a show.
Reb Fountain’s been busy. After touring and recording with Finn Andrews (The Veils) she released ‘Hopeful & Hopeless' which was recorded live at The Wine Cellar in Auckland. Reb won the Tui for Best Country Album/Artist 2018 for her album and also APRA Best Country Song 2018 for the title track ‘Hopeful & Hopeless’. After hearing her perform, Neil Finn handpicked Reb to feature in his all-star choir for his month-long album building and recording project, ‘Out of Silence’. She has since performed with Neil for his New Zealand and Australian ‘Out of Silence’ tour. Reb released and toured the second of her stellar new projects, ‘Little Arrows’, a much awaited album, featuring the late Sam Prebble, which was nominated for Best Folk Album 2018. A pre-eminent singer and performer, Reb has for years been the musicians’ secret, having performed and recorded with The Eastern, The Warratahs, Delaney Davidson, Don McGlashan, Finn Andrews (The Veils), Tami Neilson and featuring in The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary tour as the voice of Joni Mitchell.
Bent on carving her own line, Reb is one minstrel you don’t want to miss.
