The Indigo Girls, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray, have secured their spot as two of the most legendary singer-songwriters of this generation. They have spent thirty-five years performing together, produced fifteen albums (seven gold, four platinum, and one double platinum), earned a Grammy Award and seven Grammy Award nominations, and have toured arenas, festivals, and clubs the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes.
Thirty 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. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.
After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically-acclaimed eponymous album to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy Award nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” They were overnight Folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves. They have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk.
Their music lives in the hearts of generations of dedicated fans and continues to inspire young musicians. Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans. In 2015 Indigo Girls released their 15th studio album, One Lost Day, produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin and mixed by Brian Joseph.
