Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are Indigo Girls. Rolling Stone describes them as the “ideal duet partners. Their voices soar and swoop as one, alternately raucous and soothing. When they sing together, they radiate a sense of shared purpose that adds muscle to their lanky, deeply felt folk-tinged pop songs”. They met in elementary school and began performing together as high school students in Decatur, Georgia, part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. They started performing with the name Indigo Girls as students at Emory University. They have twelve original studio albums, three live records, various Greatest Hits compilations, a Rarities and a Christmas record to their credit.
When a band tours they get to see some of the greatest cities in the world. We thought it would be fun to find out from the Indigo Girls what are not only their favorite cities to play in, but what else there is they like about those cities. Even though they are from the south we were surprised that they had two different takes on their favorites because neither is in the southern United States.
There are many artists that have influenced the Indigo Girls. But it was interesting when we asked them about their influences and favorite artists that they were also able to name some very specific songs from different era's that they consider favorites.
