indigo girls began work on their sixth studio recording for epic in

john is the drummer in senead o'connor's band, which also includes claire
kenny on bass, carol isaacs on keyboards and accordion, and caroline dale on
cello, all of whom play on the tracks. natasha atlas also added some unique
backing vocals on a song entitled faye tucker. other songs recorded are go,
sister, soon be to nothing, and philosophy of loss.
in late february, army and emily recorded pre-production tracks in woodstock
for gone again, ozilene, and compromise. ric danko and garth hudson (from
the band) played on gone again and ozilene. jerry marotta and sara lee
played drums and bass respectively, except on compromise which featured
josephine wiggs on bass and kate schellenbach on drums.
