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. 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
“Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The
Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time
great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one
of their finest rockers.” – The Boston
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 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’ve since
released 14 albums (3 platinum and 3 gold), received six Grammy nominations and
have won one. Indigo Girls 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. Having
established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain
relevant and attract new fans.
