Rainbow Girls is Erin Chapin, Caitlin Gowdey, and Vanessa May - three singer songwriters who've basically grown into a single person by this point.
Their live show mixes complex harmonic arrangements, slide and finger-style guitar, harmonica, keys, and upright bass, with offbeat and approachable stage personalities. Their 2017 album, "American Dream" is an example of the girls' ability to weave textured, electric landscapes with representations of their more recently stripped down, thoughtful songwriting style.
Originally formed in 2010, Rainbow Girls emerged out of an underground open mic night in the small party town of Isla Vista, CA. Erin Chapin and Caitlin Gowdey -along with 11 other housemates- hosted an open mic in their living room every Monday night, called "Bean Night," where they met future bandmates, Cheyenne Skye and Vanessa May. The 4 piece bought one-way tickets to Europe where they hustled the streets - busking, couch-surfing, and picking up gigs as they went. When they returned to the states in fall of 2011, they added drummer Savannah Hughes, and in 2013 released their first studio album, "The Sound of Light." Skye left in 2014 to pursue dreams in the Alaskan wilderness, and the remaining 4 gals released the album, "Perceptronium," which utilized a more focused and electrified sound. In 2016, Hughes parted ways due to the band's nonstop touring schedules. Since then, Chapin, Gowdey, and May continue to develop their ever-evolving sound.
