Rainbow Kitten Surprise and all five of its members hail from the mountains of Boone, North Carolina. With catchy and deeply lyrical meaning, beautifully designed bass lines, and melodic guitar riffs, their unique sound will keep you humming their tunes all day long. The Alternative/Indie-Pop band takes influence from great artists like Modest Mouse, Lana Del Rey, and Kings of Leon.

RKS was formed in early 2013 when the first two members, Sam Melo and Darrick “Bozzy” Keller, decided to begin writing and composing music together. What started out as just two college students with acoustic guitars would soon turn into a full band with a unique sound and style.

After recording RKS’s first EP “Mary” in an old dorm room on the campus of Appalachian State University, the duo decided to take it up a notch by adding more members and instruments to the band. Over the next year the group widely expanded in size and sound by adding three more members: Ethan Goodpaster (Electric Guitar), Jess Haney (Drums), and Charlie Holt (Bass). In that year, RKS independently released their first album “Seven”, which was later re-released in combination with the band’s first EP as a joint album titled “Seven + Mary”.
