Rainbow Girls is a collaborative of songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, and California natives who spent their first 5 years touring Europe and the US as a rock n’ roll band. Since 2016 they’ve returned to their folkier roots by embarking on a House Concert Tour Across America. The current trio version of the band (Erin Chapin, Caitlin Gowdey, & Vanessa May) highlights their rich harmonies, ageless songwriting, and soulful, bluesy sound at its rawest form.
The ladies came together at an underground open mic in Santa Barbara, CA in December of 2010 and spent the following summer busking and couch surfing around Europe. Since then they have released two studio albums, toured the US and Europe extensively, and simultaneously developed two different forms of performing: 1) an electric, rock n’ roll, all out dance party; and 2) an intimate, acoustic set centered around their unique harmonies and folkier roots.
