About the Indigo Girls
Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Amy and Emily have sold over 14 million records and are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, and ’10s.
In 2012, Amy and Emily collaborated with a pair of orchestrators to prepare larger-than-life arrangements of their songs to perform with symphonies around the country. The Grammy-winning duo managed to find that elusive sonic sweet spot with the project, creating a seamless blend of folk, rock, pop, and classical that elevated their songs to new emotional heights without sacrificing any of the emotional intimacy and honesty that have defined their music for decades.
The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been a motto of the Indigo Girls’ ever since the release of their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted Grammy Award, and earned the respect of high-profile peers and collaborators from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez.
“One of the finest folk duos of all time.”–NPR’s Mountain Stage
“They personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendentally its own.”–Rolling Stone
