Over a 35-year career that began in clubs around their native Atlanta, Georgia, Saliers and Ray have recorded 16 studio albums (seven gold, four platinum, one double platinum), sold over 15 million records, and built a dedicated, enduring following. On their sixteenth studio album, Indigo Girls tell their origin story.

“We joke about being old, but what is old when it comes to music,” Saliers asks. “We’re still a bar band at heart. Our passion for music feels the same as it did when we were 25-years-old.”

Produced by John Reynolds (Sinéad O’Connor, Damien Dempsey) and recorded in the countryside outside Bath, England at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, the eleven songs on Look Long have a tender, revealing motion to them, as if they’re feeding into a Super 8 film projector, illuminating a darkened living room. “When We Were Writers” recounts the flying sparks and passion Saliers felt as a young college student when the duo first started performing together. “Shit Kickin’” is a nuanced love letter to Ray’s Southern heritage. “I’m a little bit left of the ‘salt of the earth’ / That’s alright, I’ll prove my worth,” she sings.

“As time has gone on, our audience has become more expansive and diverse which gives me a great sense of joy,” says Saliers.

Crowd singalongs that often overpower the band itself are a trademark of Indigo Girls concerts. With the duo returned to the road, amphitheaters across the country will once again fill with the sound of those collective voices raised in song. The phenomenon epitomizes the sense of community that defines Indigo Girls’ music. As one bar band once put it, “We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains…we go to the Bible, we go through the work out.” For millions, they go to Indigo Girls. On Look Long, they’ll find a creative partnership certain of its bearings, forging a way forward.
