It has been two decades since the Grammy award-winning Indigo Girls launched their career in 1987 with their independently released debut album Strange Fire. Now, after entertaining millions of fans with their 10 major-label studio albums, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have come full circle with the independent release of their new two-CD album, Poseidon and the Bitter Bug, on their new label IG Recordings.
 
With a Grammy, six Grammy nominations and a legacy of releases and tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have outlasted many of their peers and forged their own way in the music business. They’ve always thought independently, and have always balanced their commitment to music and performing with an unwavering commitment to social, political, and environmental issues. Ray and Saliers don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. In 1991, Ray and Saliers co-founded the nonprofit organization Honor the Earth to raise awareness and financial support for indigenous environmental justice, and over the years they have supported groups fighting for women’s rights, civil rights for same-sex couples, the abolition of the death penalty, and voter registration.
 
Now with their own imprint, the Indigo Girls have come full circle; they’ve weathered the ups and downs of the music industry and come out with their musical vision and enthusiasm intact.
