This week we have a crush on 2021 Taite Award recipient, Reb Fountain. Award winning singer-songwriter, Reb Fountain, is back with a spell-binding new single “Heart.” The alt folk artist entrances listeners with her music and artistry alike. With “Heart”, Reb offers us all the chance to catch a glimpse of what she's been up to since her self-titled album release.
“I wanted to share a tune for all the unrequited love and longing; the great exodus of connection and the echoes of yearning left behind, reverberating through space, time and our hearts, as we fell together and apart.” said Reb.
Reb was born in San Francisco and immigrated with her family from North America to Lyttelton, a quiet port town out of Christchurch, a city that’s been fundamental to New Zealand’s alt-folk scene, raising artists like Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding, and Delaney Davidson.
After the release of her self-titled album, Reb received five nominations at the Aotearoa Music Awards and was awarded the prestigious 2021 Taite Music Prize for the record. Reb Fountain astounded audiences around the country on her sold out album release tour in 2020 and joined Crowded House on their “To The Island Tour” during March of this year.
Reb Fountain is laying the groundwork for a massive 2021, let’s see what she gives us next!
