Indigo Girls Tickets for Sale

While they came into prominence as part of the late-'80s folky-singer/songwriter revival, the Indigo Girls have had staying power where other artists from the same era quickly faded. Their two-women-with-guitars formula may not seem very revolutionary on paper, but the combination of two distinct personalities and songwriting styles provides a tension and an interesting balance — Emily Saliers, hailing from the more traditional Joni Mitchell school, has the gentler sound, is more complex musically, and often leans toward the abstract and spiritual while Amy Ray draws heavily from the singer/songwriter aspects of punk rock, citing influences such as the Jam, the Pretenders, and Hüsker Dü for her more abrasive and direct approach. In more than a decade of recording, they have managed respectable mainstream success as well as keeping their rabid core following.

The Indigo Girls are an American lesbian folk-rock duo, consisting of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers. They got their start as part of the Athens, Georgia alternative rock scene which included the The B-52's, Pylon, R.E.M., the Georgia Satellites, and Love Tractor.

With their warm, passionate blend of folk guitars, shimmering harmonies and intelligent wordplay, the Indigo Girls have managed to cross the bridge to mainstream success while keeping one foot planted in the terra firma integrity of their musical roots.

The two women met as students at Laurel Ridge Elementary School in De Kalb County, Georgia just outside of Decatur, Georgia. In high school, they started performing together. Emily graduated and started attending Tulane University. A year later, Amy graduated and started at Vanderbilt University. Homesick, both returned to Georgia and transferred to Emory University. By 1985, they started performing together again, this time as the Indigo Girls. While they have both been in relationships with women, Amy and Emily have never dated each other.

Their first release in 1985 was a seven-inch single called Crazy Game; the B side was Everybody's Waiting. That same year, they put out a six-track self-titled EP, and in 1987, released their first full-length album, Strange Fire, recorded at John Keane Studio in Athens, Georgia, and including Crazy Game.

The success of 10,000 Maniacs, Tracy Chapman, and Suzanne Vega encouraged Epic Records to look for other women singer-songwriters; Epic signed the duo in 1988.

Their first major-label release, also self-titled, included a new version of Land of Canaan, which was also on their 1985 EP and on Strange Fire.

In 1990, Amy founded Daemon Records (http://www.daemonrecords.com), which has signed Ellen James Society, Kristen Hall and James Hall, among others.

The second album, Nomads*Indians*Saints, went gold, but was not as successful as their first. They followed it with the live Back on the Bus, Y'all. 1992's comeback album Rites of Passage was an enormous success, as was Swamp Ophelia in 1994.

In 1995, they released a live, double-CD, 1200 Curfews, followed by Shaming of the Sun in 1997 and Come on Now Social in 1999. Shaming of the Sun debuted at number seven on the Billboard charts, driven by the duo's high profile contribution to Lilith Fair.

2000 saw the release of Retrospective, a re-release compilation with a few new tracks, but in 2002 the Indigo Girls released Become You, a full album of new songs. Their latest release, and last album for the Sony Epic label, is All That We Let In.
