Ji & the Rainbirds are a 4-piece band from Bristol UK playing an up-beat blend of feel-good folk and sun-kissed soul. Showcasing the songs of singer-songwriter Claire Ji, their sound combines jazz inflected guitar with infectious hooks, soaring strings and tales from the open road.

With honey-drenched vocals and cinematic storytelling, frontwoman Claire Ji has the ability to both draw crowds in and get them dancing, telling positive stories of human connection and the reasons we keep living. Currently in the studio recording their debut EP, Ji & the Rainbirds are now booking their UK spring tour and a tour of festivals for summer 2019.
