Taite Music Prize 2021 winner Reb Fountain will premier material from her highly anticipated new album IRIS along with songs from her self titled Flying Nun debut.

Born in San Francisco, Reb immigrated with her family to Lyttelton — the quiet port town that’s been fundamental to Aotearoa’s alt-folk scene (think Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding, Delaney Davidson). In May 2020, Reb Fountain released her self-titled album to critical and popular acclaim through the iconic Flying Nun Records.

Part Patti Smith, part Nick Cave, plus a voice that will stay with you long after you’ve leapt from your seat for that standing ovation.

An eponymous creator at the top of her game – or perhaps preparing to climb to new and headier peaks
- NZ Music

Once you’ve seen Reb you’ll be joyfully haunted by the hair, the voice, the stage presence. Prepare for your heart to be filled.

In honour of Marc Steyn.
