For nearly four decades, the Grammy-winning duo Indigo Girls have created enduring and complex folk rock music that has earned them one of popular music’s most devoted fan bases. Composed of childhood friends Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, Indigo Girls emerged from the venerated Athens scene of the late-’80s and found early success with hits such as “Closer to Fine” from their platinum-selling debut. The key to the group’s sustained success lies in the symbiosis between its members, two distinctive yet complementary musical voices. While Saliers is known for her tender sound and philosophical lyrics, Ray’s approach is closer to punk rock, heavy and direct. In addition to their musical contributions, the group has also earned praise for their political and social activism, a constant throughout their career. In 2020, the duo released their 16th studio album Look Long, arguably the most personal and tender work to date.
