Patti Smith, Sharon Van Etten, Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey. Celebrated singer-songwriter Reb Fountain's self-titled album marks a new chapter in the kiwi artist's career and her first full-length release on Flying Nun Records. Reb Fountain came together in the well-seasoned walls of Neil Finn's iconic Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand. This arrangement came about after Fountain performed, recorded and toured with Finn through his 'Out of Silence' album cycle, and it seemed only natural. Long-time studio collaborator and head engineer at Roundhead, Simon Gooding, manned the helm of Fountain's 3-week recording stint, alongside the legendary Dave Khan on producing duties and Chris Chetland (Kog Studios) who mastered the final result. The album features a range of musical cameos including Finn Andrews, Ben Woolley (The Yarra Benders), Elroy Finn and Logan Compain.
The ten-track record features singles Faster, and her new single Samson. Over the span of her illustrious career as an independent singer-songwriter, Fountain has become well-known for her earnest and honest approach to storytelling, garnering a close following of fans around the world and in her home, New Zealand. While spearheading a career of her own, Reb has recorded and performed with the likes of Neil Finn, Tami Neilson, The Eastern, Don McGlashan, Marlon Williams, Steve Abel, and more.
