Indigo Girls Information
Since 1985, the Indigo Girls have been producing catchy, socially-conscious folk-rock. Coming from the epicenter of 80's college rock, Georgia, the Indigo Girls were signed to Epic records in 1988. Epic was in seach of female-fronted singer songwriters as a result of the recent success of 10,000 Maniacs, Suzanne Vega, and Tracy Chapman, and the 'Girls debut self titled album was a perfect fit. "Indigo Girls" went all the way up to #22 on the Billboard albums chart, and made the group a modern rock radio staple with single "Closer to Fine". 1991's "Nomads Indians Saints" and 1992's "Rites of Pagssage" were huge successes, producing hits "Hammer and Nail" and "Galileo". Third record "Swamp Ophelia" produced the single "Least Complicated", another modern rock hit.
In 1997, the Indigo Girls were one of the featured artists on the immensely popular Lilith Fair. Albums "Shamaing of the Sun" and "Come On Now Social" featured singles, "Shame on You" and "Peace Tonight", hugely popular songs on the US adult top 40 Billboard chart. A collaboration with pop artist Pink in 2007 would produce the surprise hit single "Dear Mr President".
The Indigo Girls are going out on tour in support of their new album "Poseidon and the Bitter Bug", due out on March 24th, 2009. The tour includes a stop at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on April 16th.
