Known as one of the most influential duos in the Americana music scene, the Indigo Girls have significantly impacted the music world with songs containing catchy melodies and socially conscious lyricism. Composed of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, the Indigo Girls started out playing together in high school at Emory University, performing weekly at a local bar. Amy and Emily don't usually write songs together throughout their work but are more of a compliment to each of their songs. In the early stages of their career, they released "Strange Fire" as their first record in 1987. And not long after, the power duo won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Recording in 1990. After releasing nine record albums up to 2007, Indigo Girls started to release songs independently.
In 2009, "Poseidon and the Bitterbug" was released by IG recordings, the Indigo Girls' label, and was the duo's first independent release since "Strange Fire." The two are very politically active, advocating the causes of and holding benefit concerts for the environment, gay rights, rights of Native Americans, and the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. For many years they've established a recycling and public outreach program in their road tours. In June 2007, the Indigo Girls were part of the multi-artist True Colors Tour, which benefited the Human Rights Campaign and other organizations supporting the LGBT community. In 2019, the Indigo Girls won the Pell Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts, followed after that just recently in 2022, winning the Spirit of Americana/The Free Speech Award.
This dynamic duo will be on tour this year to promote their latest album, "Look Long." Amy and Emily will perform at the Johnny Mercer Theater on April 15. See them live for some good ol' folk rock music experience. Get your tickets now!
