While you're at it, nab tickets to Marlon Williams and Reb Fountain's UK/EU tour — happening throughout October and November this year.
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" and Karl Pushmann, VIVA New Zealand Herald, states, "From the moment you press play, IRIS envelops you."
Winner of the 2021 Taite Music Prize and the Aotearoa Music Award for Best Country Music Album and APRA Best Song in 2018, songwriter Reb Fountain is a consummate recording artist and performer: stunning audiences with her music and artistry alike. 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.
