Anybody who has seen this band full flight knows the power of a Reb Fountain live show. After standout debut performances at Womadelaide and extensively touring in Europe with Marlon Williams, Fountain’s reputation for an exceptional live show has gone global.
Reb Fountain is an award-winning artist known for her spell-binding live performances, unparalleled voice & magnetic on-stage presence. Invoking a blend of folk, art-pop and rock unrivalled in Aotearoa, “her sound is genre defying, the set seamlessly transitions from songs that wouldn’t go amiss on a Bond soundtrack, to electro pop, to rock and folk but it flows in to one unmistakable sound.” (Subba-Cultcha). Appearing with her long-time collaborators Dave Khan, Karin Canzek and Earl Robertson, these “world-class performers” (Off The Tracks) conjure a rich musical landscape that unequivocally moves, inspires and uplifts audiences. This will be an anthemic must-see performance.
"I watched Reb Fountain prowling across the stage like Patti Smith and Cat Power one-minute, Nick Cave living his best life the next. Reb was a revelation.” —Stuff
“It’s truly incredible to watch.“ (Subba-Cultcha). Performing with passion and with a pure love of the art, “it’s impossible not to be moved on this journey.” —Rolling Stone
With special thanks to the Kalderimis family for sponsoring Reb Fountain in the Fortune Favours Live Music Series 2024.
