The Indigo Girls
Never ones to rest on their laurels, Indigo Girls embarked on a bold new chapter in
2012, collaborating with a pair of orchestrators to prepare larger-than-life
arrangements of their songs to perform with symphonies around the country. It was a
challenging endeavor, to say the least, but the GRAMMY-winning duo managed to find
that elusive sonic sweet spot with the project, creating a seamless blend of folk, rock,
pop, and classical that elevated their songs to new emotional heights without
sacrificing any of the emotional intimacy and honesty that have defined their music
for decades. Now, after more than 50 performances with symphonies across America,
the experience has finally been captured in all its grandeur on the band’s stunning
new album, ‘Indigo Girls Live With The University of Colorado Symphony Orchestra.’
Recorded in front of a sold-out audience in Boulder, CO, and deftly mixed by GRAMMYwinner
Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris), the record showcases Indigo
Girls at their finest: raw, real, and revelatory. Spanning material from throughout the
band’s career, the 22-song set features a mix of reimagined classics, unexpected deep
cuts, and tracks from their latest studio album, ‘One Lost Day.’ Backed by the
symphony, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers’ voices are both powerful and delicate, their
intertwined harmonies riding high on the crest of an emotional tidal wave created by
Sean O’Loughlin and Stephen Barber’s dazzling arrangements. The orchestrations are
as richly cinematic as a film score (think John Williams rather than J.S. Bach), and the
64-piece symphony wrings every ounce of passion from them, helping to bring the
band’s evocative storytelling to more vivid life than ever before.
There’s an unmistakable sense of community and inclusion on the album, in part
because that’s a hallmark of every Indigo Girls show, but also in part because Ray and
Saliers considered themselves pieces of the orchestra for the performance, no more
and no less important than any other artist on the stage. That pursuit of unity, both in
music and in life, has been an Indigo Girls calling card ever since they burst into the
spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked
up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and
earned the respect of high profile peers-turned-collaborators from Michael Stipe to
Joan Baez. NPR's Mountain Stage called the group "one of the finest folk duos of all
time," while Rolling Stone said they "personify what happens when two distinct
sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something
transcendently its own," and The New York Times raved that "gleeful profanities,
righteous protest anthems and impeccable folk songwriting have carried this duo for
thirty years."
