 Reb at Womadelaide
 “Reb Fountain is of one of those artists that you don’t know but need to see.” 

Scenestr, 2022

“At first, I thought I was listening to a cross between Patti Smith and Nick Cave but these comparisons quickly fall away as Reb is a true original.”

Hifiway, 2022

Reb’s atmospheric sounds and soaring vocals invoke Mazzy Starr, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, but with a stunning originality.”

The Clothesline, 2022

“With comparisons to Patti Smith, Kate Bush and Florence and the Machine, the set captivated the assembled crowd.”

The aureview, 2022

“Reb was captivating. It was not a performance that one could simply walk away from. I stayed for the whole set.”

Broadway World, 2022

In October 2021, Reb Fountain released IRIS, her sophomore album via Flying Nun Records, to critical acclaim. Martin Aston from MOJO magazine called Reb, New Zealand’s next alt-folk sensation", awarding IRIS 4 stars. Reb’s 2020 album, Reb Fountain won the 2021 Taite Music Prize, was shortlisted for the Silver Scroll award for her song ‘Don’t You Know Who I Am’, and the album Reb Fountain was nominated for five New Zealand Music Awards.  A perfect extension of her 2020 self-titled album, IRIS elevates Reb Fountain’s music to new heights. Here, Reb effortlessly combines pop elements with her trademark noir folk-punk sound, weaving authentic and anthemic tunes that create an instant and indelible impression.

Renowned for her spell-binding live performances with four piece band, Reb Fountain performs at Brunswick Ballroom, June 2nd, 2022.  

The award-winning songwriter, Reb Fountain, is a consummate recording artist and performer; captivating audiences with her music and artistry alike. Throughout 2021, Reb and her all-star band astounded audiences around the Aotearoa, New Zealand on her sold out album release tour, joined Crowded House on their 13 date, ‘To The Island Tour’, performed at Splore, and honoured the great Nick Cave at the sold out Auckland Town Hall show, ‘The Boy Next Door’.

Reb was born in San Francisco and immigrated with her family from North America to Lyttelton — the quiet port town out of Christchurch that’s been fundamental to New Zealand’s alt-folk scene, raising artists like her friends Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding, and Delaney Davidson.
