1. The Water Rats :: Reb Fountain + Blair Jollands :: 15/11/22
2. Upcoming Highlights


We’re delighted to announce that Blair Jollands will be joining Flying Nun artist Reb Fountain when she performs with her all-star band at The Water Rats later this month.

Having won the admiration of both David Bowie & Boy George (who released Blair’s band El Hula on his More Protein label), Blair Jollands’s music communicates a paradoxical mix of melancholia and optimism that draws the listener in. Often compared vocally to Nick Cave or Rufus Wainwright, Blair has received praise from the likes of NME, Guardian, Uncut, ArtRocker and many more. Check out his latest video for “Deep Water”

If you’e not aware of her, Reb Fountain effortlessly combines pop elements with the trademark noir folk-punk sound featured on her critically acclaimed Flying Nun releases Reb Fountain and IRIS. Check out the videos to ‘Don’t You Know Who I Am‘, ‘Lacuna’ and ‘Psyche’ on her YouTube channel.

Renowned for her spell-binding performances, ‘Reb moves across the stage and through the various stages of herself to deliver her songs, devotionals. Prowling like Patti Smith and Cat Power one- minute, Nick Cave living his best life the next with soaring vocals invoking Mazzy Starr, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, but all with a stunning originality,’ making her live show something not to be missed.

Tickets are £15 + b/f from Music Glue, See Tickets or Ticketweb.
