Rainbow Girls are an eclectic folk trio hailing from the golden countryside just north of California’s Bay Area. Comprised of three unique musical talents – Vanessa May, Erin Chapin, and Caitlin Gowdey – they seamlessly combine soul-touching harmonies, varitextured instrumentals and poignant lyrical content into an unusually beautiful sonic tapestry. Pairing their voices with an everchanging amalgamation of acoustic and slide guitar, keys, upright bass, voice, harmonica, and an array of more unexpected vocal techniques like beat-boxing and mouth trumpet, they create engaging and emotionally moving live performances.
Originally formed in Santa Barbara, CA in 2010, the Rainbow Girls have spread their musical wings both internationally and domestically. From busking on the streets of Europe to playing pubs and theaters in the UK, to house concerts, festivals and shows in the U.S., their music delves deeply into themes of the human experience. Rainbow Girls have gained recognition on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series and KQED’s ‘The California Report”. SUNDAY
