After touring and recording with Finn Andrews(The Veils), Reb Fountain released Hopeful &Hopeless;"the most perfect EP ever made," (Simon Wilson, Metro) in June 2017.

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; she has since performed with Neil for his New Zealand and Australian Out of Silence tour.

Reb released and toured the second of her stellar new projects, Little Arrows; a much awaited album featuring the late Sam Prebble that was nominated for Best Folk Album 2018. 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 further sold out shows around the country. “From the moment she arrives on the Spiegeltent stage she possesses it completely.” (Bridie Freeman,The Hook).

A pre-eminent singer and performer Reb has for years been the musicians secret, having performed and recorded with The Eastern, The Warratahs, Delaney Davidson, Don McGlashan, Finn Andrews (The Veils), Will Wood,Tami Neilson, Neil Finn and featuring in The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary tour as the voice of Joni Mitchell. 

Reb Fountain is to be counted among our finest songwriters whose imagery is both personal and universal, and her command of a melody and a song transcends genre.” (Graham Reid,Elsewhere)
