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’s release 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. They say as long as Orpheus sings he breathes life into death; that, in the most challenging of times, we too have the opportunity for rebirth. Orpheus would play his u-shaped lyre; it’s two arms reaching away from one another to hold the tension of strings vibrating across the bridge between,” said Reb.
“Heart is a love song; not a happily ever after kind of love, more the type of love that makes beautiful music precisely because it is forever connected and apart. Held by heart strings it is the kind of love that begged Orpheus to turn and share it with Eurydice only to lose her forever – the sort of love that’s human; where great suffering and great joy exist as one.”
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 2021.
“Heart” is available across all streaming platforms now.
