PRESS RELEASE:

Reb Fountain Announces New Studio Album and Tour - ‘Little Arrows’

It’s here – 6 years in the making – Reb Fountain’s album LITTLE ARROWS is set for release September 1st with an exclusive 4 tour date to follow.

On the back of the acclaimed release of her EP Hopeful & Hopeless, Reb Fountain releases the second of her stellar projects: Little Arrows.

Little Arrows is rich full of songs about grappling with relationships, both personal and institutional, and countering injustice by fighting back with self, song and community.

Little Arrows began in the music den of her Grandmother’s home in Vancouver. Full of musical instruments, trinkets and photographs not to mention two pianos along with a fold out couch for when family or friends stopped through … which was often; Reb found solace and reflection in her familial space.

Reb writes and sings as if she just burst into song telling tales woven together; multiple stories running through, often concurrently, creating a landscape rich, diverse and universal. Her recently released EP Hopeful & Hopeless revealed her mastery of the folk tale. Little Arrows contains both folklore and pop; illuminating all sides of Reb – the dark the light, the rock, the roll; the folk and the lore that awashes between.

‘Little Arrows’ holds the key to a moment in time that can never be recaptured. A beautiful, creative collaboration between three gifted songwriters – Sam Prebble, Dylan Storey and Reb Fountain - bound in deep friendship. Irrespective of the time it took to develop, Little Arrows seems to be fit for purpose right here, right now. Reb manages to transcend folk, punk Americana, and fill the well of the political with heart and soul. Reb is a strong, independent voice, bent on carving her own line, embracing the hopeful and hopeless and creating a reflective sound for our times.

Little Arrows features Reb Fountain (Piano, Guitar, Voice), Sam Prebble (Violin, Mandolin), Dylan Storey (Electric Guitar, Voice), Mike Hall (Bass), Mike Franklin-Browne (Drums,Percussion), Simon Gooding (Voice on Brighton), Steve Abel (Voice on Heart of Me).

All songs written by Reb Fountain. All songs produced, engineered, mixed & mastered by Simon Gooding.
