Artist Bio

As if channeling another dimension where genres simply don’t exist, Rainbow Kitten Surprise find harmony in unpredictability – weaving together lyrical poetry, hummable melodies, and a rush of instrumental eccentricities. Now boasting over 1 billion global streams across platforms, the band first began building their devoted fanbase with independent albums ‘Seven + Mary’ (2013) and ‘RKS’ (2015).  Arriving in 2018, the band’s RIAA-certified Gold, full-length debut for Elektra, “HOW TO: FRIEND, LOVE, FREEFALL” – produced by Grammy Award-winner Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Sleeper Agent) – earned widespread praise from BillboardTIMEVice, and NPR who described their sound as “…a mix of jam and indie and whatever else you can throw into the soup…very earnest, beautiful, political, loving rock n’ roll, and several national television appearances, including performances on “CBS This Morning Saturday,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and PBS’s “Austin City Limits.” After gracing the bills of BonnarooLollapalooza, and Osheaga, to name a few, RKS moved 80,000 tickets of their own on their sold-out Friend, Love Freefall Tour earmarked by a packed night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and three consecutive gigs in Athens, GA—as chronicled on their first official live album, Live From Athens Georgia, released in 2021. Most recently, two longtime fan-favorite tracks began to take off organically on TikTok, with “It’s Called: Freefall” and “Cocaine Jesus” experiencing massive upticks after user-created content on the platform went viral – resulting in over 11 million *weekly* streamsfor the band. The songs now boast 85 and 80 million streams, respectively.

Rainbow Kitten Surprise is: Ela Melo (lead vocals), Darrick “Bozzy” Keller (guitar, vocals), Ethan Goodpaster (lead guitar, vocals), Charlie Holt(bass, vocals), Jess Haney (drums)
