Dead Winter Carpenters
Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, Calif., Americana band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. In just a few years, they have positioned themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”
That progressive nature comes through loud and clear – from instruments plugged and unplugged – in the band’s new release, Washoe (February 26, 2016). The band’s fourth studio project, the 12-song collection of originals was recorded in Reno’s Sierra Sonics Studio (Ozzy Ozbourne, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Collective Soul) and co-produced by Dead Winter Carpenters and Zachary Girdis.
Erin Chapin, Caitlin Gowdey, and Vanessa May -the dynamic trio known as Rainbow Girls- have already emerged as a much-loved live act both abroad and on their California home turf. They spent their first 5 years touring and busking around Europe and the US as a rock n' roll band, and in 2017 embarked on a stripped down *House Concert Tour Across America.
Rainbow Girls' discerning sensibility in regards to living in the United States is acutely reflected in their impassioned debut record as a trio, "American Dream". The recently released album highlights their rich harmonies, ageless songwriting, and soulful, bluesy sound at its rawest form. They have described their music as "a gang of sweet angels, punching you in the heart."
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 three studio albums, toured the US and Europe extensively, been featured on KQED's The California Report, and shared the stage with The Brothers Comatose, ALO, John Craigie, Josiah Johnson (The Head and the Heart), and Handmade Moments.
