Rainbow Girls are an eclectic trio comprising three unique musical talents—Vanessa May, Erin Chapin, and Caitlin Gowdey—who seamlessly combine heart-wrenching harmonies, emotive guitar work, and poignant lyrical content into an unusually beautiful sonic tapestry. Hailing from the golden countryside just north of California's Bay Area, they make music that delves deeply into themes of the human experience: hopeful love, honest self-reflection, and pursuits of social justice. Their latest album, "American Dream," crystallizes these ideas in acoustic amber, encapsulating a beautiful new direction for their evolving sound. Originally formed in Santa Barbara in 2010, Rainbow Girls have spread their musical wings both internationally and domestically, from busking on the streets of Europe and playing pubs and theaters in the UK, to house concerts, festivals, and shows in the US. Rainbow Girls have also gained recognition on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series and KQED radio's "The California Report."
