Reb Fountain’s been busy. After touring and recording with Finn Andrews (The Veils) she released ‘Hopeful & Hopeless’; an EP recorded live at The Wine Cellar, to resounding acclaim. 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’. Then Reb released and toured the second of her stellar new projects, ‘Little Arrows’; a much awaited album featuring the late Sam Prebble, that was recorded 6 years ago. Her band, ‘made up for lost time by putting on one of the finest shows of the year’ (Marty Duda, 13th Floor). Reb jumped straight into ‘The Boy Next Door – a celebration of Nick Cave’ to sold out shows around the country. Known for being a stalwart member of New Zealand’s hardest working band ‘The Eastern’ and for her songwriting and performance prowess, Reb is an artist you don’t want to miss as she hurtles past.
