Rainbow Girls is a trio comprised of 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, their music delves deeply into themes of the human experience: hopeful love, honest self-reflection, and pursuits of social justice. Their album, "American Dream,” crystallizes these ideas in acoustic amber, encapsulating a beautiful new direction for their evolving sound.
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 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's "The California Report."

Rainbow Girls organized the first ever entirely female line up at one of San Francisco's most famous venues: The Fillmore. Joined by 3 other bay area artists -The SHE'S, The Hot Toddies, and Kendra McKinely- the Rainbow Girls made their first big dent in San Francisco history.
The flyer for the event (pictured left), designed by our own Caitlin Gowdey, was featured on the cover of The New Fillmore for the month of January. Read the full article here!
