Rainbow Girls are an eclectic folk trio hailing from the golden countryside just north of California’s Bay Area. Vanessa May, Erin Chapin, and Caitlin Gowdey seamlessly combine soul-touching harmonies, varitextured instrumentals, and poignant lyrical content into a beautiful sonic tapestry. Throughout their performance, voices are paired with an ever-changing amalgamation of acoustic and slide guitar, keys, upright bass, harmonica, and an array of vocal techniques creating an engaging and often emotionally moving live show.
Their music 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 ever 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 to playing pubs and theaters in the UK, to house concerts, festivals, and shows in the US.
Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Caroline Reilly and I'm a young musician living in Northern Atlanta. I was born in Pembroke Pines, Florida on May 15th 2003. In 2007, my family and I moved up to Forsyth County in Atlanta, Georgia. Singing had always been my passion ever since I was a little girl. I would play Rock Band with my family so I could sing my heart out! When I was 10, I decided I wanted to take my singing to the next level with musical theatre. I did 5 junior musicals along with one full production of a musical. In the fall of 2015 I started taking guitar lessons so I could start to perform independently. I immediately fell in love with guitar and would practice often. Being able to play and sing afforded me more opportunities. After almost a year of playing guitar, I decided to take my guitar playing to the big stage in July of 2016. That same July, was the month when I had decided to take a break from musical theatre and focus on my career as a musician! The last show I did was the full production Bye Bye Birdie! After two years of guitar, I decided to pick up the bass and drums. Bass seemed to come easy to me, but my drumming is still a work in progress! I have played in three bands so far on my musical journey and hope to expand that number even further! I want to seize the day and take every opportunity I can handle. In June of 2018, I attended the Berklee College of Music vocal summit summer program. It was an amazing week-long experience that I was so grateful to have had. At the end of the vocal summit, they gave out awards to a handful of the students. They gave out two scholarships for next year's five-week summer program at Berklee. I was so honored by the fact that I was one of the two chosen for the scholarship! I can't wait to return for the five-week in 2019!
A lot of what influences me as an artist comes from the wonderful musicians I listen to, past and present. Green Day was my favorite band for the longest time and really shaped the way I would play and even write music. As time went on, I fell in love with iconic bands like Queen, Guns N' Roses, The Beatles, The Who, and several others! My taste in music has really shaped who I am and want to be as a musician.
I wouldn't be where I am right now without the support from my family. My parents are 100% invested in me and the goals I have set for my future. My mother has really contributed a lot of time and effort into making me the best I can be. I'm so thankful to have someone like her in my life!
