“Feel-good folk meets sun-kissed soul.“

Showcasing the songs of singer-songwriter Claire Ji, Ji and the Rainbirds combine the summer sound of soul with jazz-inflected guitar, skiffle drums, soaring strings and up-beat catchy melodies.

With a heartfelt sincerity and an ability to both draw and crowd in and get them dancing, Claire Ji’s songs tell tales from the open road with positive stories of human connection and the reasons we keep living.

After a busy summer of festivals in 2019, they have recently released their debut single Old Eyes, with an EP release set for autumn 2019.
