Folllwing an eighteen-date tour supporting Marlon Williams, critically acclaimed artist Reb Fountain is set to headline her first live London show. The Kiwi artist will bring trademark noir folk-punk sound combined with pop elements to London’s Water Rats venue on November 15, after finishing supporting Marlon Williams’ UK tour.
“Being here is everything. This is what we do. Live performance is the ne plus ultra of our musical work ; all roads lead to the stage. With our international touring plans thwarted in 2020, the band and I are thrilled to be here, and to finish with our first ever headline show in London is an extraordinary gift and we are incredibly grateful.”Reb Fountain
Reb astounded audiences around New Zealand throughout 2020 on her sold out debut album tour, joined Crowded House on their thirteen date, ‘To The Island Tour’, and honoured Nick Cave at the sold-out Auckland Town Hall show, ‘The Boy Next Door’.
Reb is the winner of the 2021 Taite Music Prize for her self-titled debut ‘Reb Fountain’. Her second album ‘Iris’ quickly followed in October 2021 and this year Reb and band made their Australian debut at Womadelaide, performed at Big Sound and at a sold-out show with Marlon Williams in Melbourne. They have just completed a nationwide tour of New Zealand in Aotearoa’s most iconic theatres.
Best known for her captivating live performances with her four-piece band, Reb is excited to bring ‘Iris’ to British and Irish audiences over the next month.
