    Described by NPR Music as joyous folk pop, Kuinka "laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyns mid-aughts guitar-rock revival" (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, synthesizers, ukulele and electronic percussion. For all of their sonic experimentation, the Seattle quartet's songs and live shows are linked by an infectious energy that remains present in everything they do. Their new EP Stay Up Late is available now on Spotify, iTunes, and at www.kuinkatheband.com.

    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 began their musical journey in 2011, alternating between busking around Europe and touring the US as a rock n' roll band, before embarking on a stripped down House Concert Tour Across America* in 2017.

    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. Their music might best be described 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.
