indigo girl emily saliers speaks out about gay marriage, love and duo's latest works
by lawrence ferber
friday, march 26, 2004
atlanta's own indigo girls, amy ray and emily saliers, are all over the local and national music scene. the venerable pair's latest album, "all that we let in," hit store shelves last month, and their collaboration with the atlanta ballet, "shed your skin/the indigo girls project," appears at the fox theatre this weekend.
the ballet is a restaging of a unique project that combines the duo's live performance with dance numbers by atlanta ballet company members.
just as when childhood friends saliers and ray laid down their first tracks in 1981 as "the b-band" and later as indigo girls, the pair is not afraid to publicly discuss their own sexual orientations as well as the politics of gender and gay issues.
but while the duo is speaking out more and more on issues such as same-sex marriage rights, they have no plans to become "wedding singers," saliers says.
"oh my god, that would be depressing," she muses. "no 'you light up my life.' no way."
besides, the pair is too busy touring with the new album.
last audiences heard from the indigos was 2002's "become you," which united many of the same talents as the new "all that." producer peter collins as well as musicians carol isaacs, clare kenny and brady blade came back together at georgia's sound tree studios for the new project.
"all that" is a lively, energized album filled with indigo aural hallmarks like rich dueling guitars, soulful keyboards and the saliers-ray trademark harmonies. the cd is a bridge between the acoustic folk of "become you" and the alt-rock tinged "come on now social" released in 2000.
"'come on' was so layered, has so much stuff on it," saliers says. "such a fun album to me, it might be my favorite. this one's more organic to me across the board, although there's electric guitar on it."
and don't worry, birkenstock set. there are acoustic ballads in the mix, too.
ray wrote five of the album's 11 tracks; saliers wrote the remaining six.
"a lot of [our songs'] themes crossed over," saliers says. "politics and social causes are going to emerge, which they did, so we have some thematic similarities. we also have some straight-up love songs."
but one major element does bond the album together: legendary comic book illustrator jaime hernandez (whose "love & rockets" comic series features queer characters) illustrates the cd cover and interior booklet.
saliers describes the odd hernandez-drawn storyline in the booklet, which involves a woman who plants statues from outer space in the desert, as "a metaphor for the beautiful miracles the universe can provide."
"the cover art is this woman on a pipe, but to me, it is a balance between nature and the destruction of nature," she says.
as for the songs, ray's love for reggae, ska and the clash inspired the bouncy "heartache for everyone."
from a seemingly different realm comes the album's gentle title song, which saliers says is "personal but also universal."
"it talks about the details of life meeting, about planets falling and exploding. it's an anti-war song," she asserts. "in the end, there's the beauty and terror of life, they work hand in hand - it can be painful at times."
saliers personally boasts a healthy 10-year relationship with her girlfriend. so how does the singer-songwriter keep coming up with yarns of unhappy, dysfunctional affairs for her albums?
"as a writer, your eyes and ears are open all the time, you observe people and other relationships. you have empathy," she explains. "i think a lot about what it would be like to be in certain situations. i watch a lot of films and read a lot of literature, so i pick up a lot of dysfunction."
conversely, "free in you" expresses salier's own love for her partner.
"[she is] a really wonderful person, i like her personality," salier says. "she's always interesting to me. i found the right person, and i'm very fortunate. but we work at it."
saliers says she and ray also work on their longtime friendship and professional collaboration. indigo girls' seeds were first sowed as students at laurel ridge elementary school in decatur. later, they formed the b-band, experimentally recording some tunes in 1981. after that, "saliers and ray" made a go until indigo girls officially came to be in 1985.
their eponymous major label debut was released in 1989. over the course of nine albums, the indigos were nominated for six grammys, won one and took home multiple gay music awards. the pair sold one double platinum disc, three records went platinum and four more went gold.
as the leading act from decatur's "lesbians with acoustic guitars" movement in the '80s, the pair finally went electric on 2000's "come on now social." the disc was recorded in london with guest artists including joan osborne, sheryl crow, me'shell ndegeocello and kate schellenbach of luscious jackson.
"i also wouldn't mind singing with mary j. blige," saliers says. "she can sing the whole track, actually - i'll sing backup."
when not working with saliers, ray runs the atlanta-based record label daemon records with a focus on local acts. the label also released ray's 2001 solo effort, "stag." a second solo album may follow.
saliers is considering a debut solo effort as well. but first, an album of indigo rarities is scheduled for release following the duo's current tour.
the band's sound has evolved over the years, but one aspect of their work that remains consistent is indigo girls' commitment to political activism.
lately, activism includes fighting amendments to both state and federal constitutions that would disallow same-sex marriage or partnership benefits.
"bush would be the first president of the u.s. to amend the constitution in a way that is exclusive rather than inclusive," saliers says. "he needs to stop. what a legacy he's dug already. "
indigo girls' web site, www.indigogirls.com, includes information about the fight for same-sex marriage, and saliers recently attended a rally in georgia against the state's proposed marriage amendment.
"there were all sorts of clergy against the amendment, in support of the gay, lesbian, bisexual [and] transgender community," she says. "it's very uplifting to see that there are other sides and that the christian right doesn't speak for all people of faith."
saliers urges "every known gay person in the public eye to take a stand" and fight for same-sex marriage rights.
"i'd like all fellow gay and gay-supportive public figures and celebrities to speak up against the antigay amendments," she says. "it's just so important that people realize we need to have our civil rights and we have to fight this religious right that's dictating morality and mixing with politics."
whether saliers plans to get hitched herself is a more personal, private issue, she insists.
"if my partner and i want to, we will. and if not we won't," she says. "i wouldn't get married just to celebrate having won the right. i'm fighting for a civil right for all who want get married, but not everybody does and i respect that as well. i will stay in this fight until the end - if my life depends on it."

this is confusing...tickets are available through next ticketing now?  i checked and there's nothing for sec. 2 for sale there, and the best ticket was the back of sec. 3.


ticketmaster still has no sale date posted.  why would next and ticketmaster sell for the same show?


i'm not sure if i should go for the far away seats now or wait and see what ticketmaster has.


would love some feedback,

gosh, the people behind the ghost rap must be so cool :)


you could always oops the cds to get a pretty-much instrumental version.
oops=out of phase stereo. (if you're using a program like cool edit, it's
called vocal cut). you can also use change your speaker's wiring for a
low-tech solution.


what it does is invert one of the channels and subtracts it from the other.
everything in the center of the stereo image is removed. most of the vocals
are gone, but there's still some ambience left.


and yes, i do realize just how geeky this sounds.

they were on a road trip to a dinah shore golf tournament weekend and they sang "closer to fine" very badly. the nice thing about how they treated the song was that it sparked memories of how the characters came out. the name of the episode is "looking back" for those of you getting l-word episodes.

       speaking solely for myself, i don't have time in my life to socialize
with my real friends, so why would i possibly have any desire to turn over an
hour of my life every week to a group of people i have nothing in common with
except sexual orientation? i watched the first four episodes (four hours i
will never get back), and thought it tried to cover too much terrority, getting
in every possible lesbian "angle" they could, and i thought it came out
cliched. it's a soap opera, and i have no interest in their lives, so i stopped
watching. for those who enjoy it, great. it's not my style.

hi everyone,


for those who don't know, the date for 6/17 in nj is incorrect. it says
asbury park at the starland ballroom. however, the starland is not in
nj.
it's in sayreville. i just checked the starland website and the girls
are
playing there. so, they will not be in asbury park--which is a shame cuz
i
could walk to the show--but in sayreville at the starland.


yea! i can see a show this tour!


cheers,

as i said, i like the show and think it is as true to life as it gets on tv.
the show addresses issues in the lesbian/gay community and like it or not,
that group of women is illustrative of the groups hanging out all over america!
btw, they were terrible and i have never heard a more horrific rendition of
ctf!  but they look good trying to sing it!

sorry - this is just, to me - super important - and i figured it would at
least interest one more individual - and who doesnt like the counting crows
- (*my fave is the hidden version of chelsea off across a wire.)


the first album was titled "august and everything after" - however - there
is a song that never made that album, called the same thing -  it is as
legendary as the solo emily album or the cd promo of the greek concert in 92.


he posted to the band's official bbs he didnt remember the lyrics - so
insane fan - with a song again - that no one has even heard - post lyrics -
and they were correct - no reply to confirm or deny...


but he played the song 12-12-03 - it is on annabegins.com and is a b-side
to the re-released single for hangin around...


and it totally is amazing - i gotta pull out the first album - and figure
where it'd be on the cd - this isn't a throw away track - it is an opus -
eight minutes long - it is like rem never putting nightswimming or country
feedback - or ig never releasing touch me fall, chickenman, pushing the
needle, kidfears....i dunno...


i figure i'd try and post something positive (very nigc) rather than
writing a manifesto as to why the mass legislature is a bunch of morons.

with all due respect to those who like the show, i think it's terrible and
emily was right on target with her comments in girlfriends.  this week
especially was filled with all kinds of moments which could more or less be
subtitled "the bone-heads guide to lesbians: the diana shore spring break,
and an indigo girls road trip."  it was painful and uninspired.  the show is
clearly meant to appeal to men as well as women.  one other particularly
offensive sequence was when the cast was sitting around a pool checking out
the dykes, and practically none of the extras who played all these dykes
looked anything like the cast members, in terms of scale-of-femminess and
hipness.  they exhausted several lines of dialogue on how easy it is to pick
out an obvious dyke in a crowd.  all i could say to myself was, yeah, hon,
you're making fun of the very people who are watching this show and probably
look nothin' like you.  super-tacky, and very un-funny.  it's hard with
shows like these to pick off the parts that may actually reflect our own
lives (in character motivation as well as cross-section appearances) from
the trash meant to sell the show and terrible writing.


carry on,
vicki

indigo girls continue to entertain new ideas

indigo girls emily saliers and amy
ray have been making music together for more than 20
years now, and they've just released their ninth
studio album, all that we let in on epic records.

but, even after all these years, saliers admits that
ray still has a few surprises up her sleeve.

"amy's an idea person, and she's always got something
brewing," says saliers. "one song that turned out
really unexpectedly on this new record was 'heartache
for everyone,' a really fun song with a ska beat,
which we had never done before. i think a lot of
people are surprised by that one."

it's generally accepted that indigo girls' music
works on a yin/yang balance. the dark-haired ray is
more politically minded and harder-edged, with more of
a penchant for rock. meanwhile, saliers' songs are
more personal, folk-oriented and emotionally
sentimental.

the blond saliers says that it's not quite so cut and
dried, but that each half of the duo does indeed
complement the other.

"we are really different, you know?" she admits. "our
musical sensibilities are different at times, and our
personalities can be very different. but we work
really well together. we cover different parts of the
spectrum."

the two women have been friends since they were in
elementary school in decateur, ga., and they're
partners in almost every sense (except romantically).

"having a very deep and long-standing friendship and
working relationship is so rare," says saliers. "it's
a real gift to be able to work with somebody like amy.
i really appreciate it, because i look around and see
how rare it is. we're not a band that's been torn
apart by egos or any kind of weird aspirations.

"we sort of stuck to the root of our motivation, and
it's still the same now 23 years later. we keep each
other honest."

a good part of that honesty is the indigo girls'
longtime commitment to social and political activism.
during this presidential election year, ray and
saliers plan to spend most of their time on the road,
bringing not only their music, but also political
awareness to concert-goers.

"amy and i together are going to focus our energies
on voter registration. we don't endorse candidates,
but you can probably tell who we're trying to get out
of office," she says with a chuckle. "there are so
many nonvoters in this country that we're going to
push for voter registration, because this is such a
critical time to be involved in the political
process."

voter registration isn't the only cause that will be
getting a big push from the indigo girls. they're also
focusing their educational efforts on women's rights
and gay rights.

"we're going to this big march on washington on april
25, which is a pro-women, pro-choice rally that's
going to be huge," says saliers. "and then, of course,
same-sex marriage and gay-rights issues are vastly,
personally, important to us. i think that it's shaping
the way that the nation is going, so we're going to be
very actively involved with that issue.

"as a gay person, you have to fight depression at
times. it's just so depressing to face something like
bush's proposal [to amend the constitution to ban
same-sex marriage], but on the other hand it makes you
want to fight against it all the harder.

"i just know that there are so many americans who
don't support changing the constitution that way, and
we've all got to get together and make a statement.
especially the moderate and liberal factions of the
church have to come out against this, because this is
a faith-based initiative primarily, and if we're going
to maintain a separation between church and state,
we've got to have everybody -- including the church --
onboard saying that's the way it's got to be.

"you can't always let a popular vote be the
decision-maker when it comes to something like civil
rights, because it takes a long time for people to
open their hearts to change."

i was shopping for the latest issue of girlfriends, so i walk into my local barnes and noble. at first i cannot find the latest issue to save my life. this shop has dozens of magazines but not the one i want and i am getting close to giving up.


all of a sudden, i hear some familiar music on the sound system. turns out the shop is playing altwi and that inspires me. as amy is launching into "dairy queen" i start to look again and success!!!  i find the magazine buried behind the other "women's interest" magazines about hair care and wedding dresses.


i buy more than one issue and as i'm paying for them, the clerk is trying to figure out why i need more than one issue. i love when clerks pry into my business because i enjoy not answering their questions directly! he thought i was actually in the magazine and i politely point out that being a man, i've been anyone's girlfriend!

hi folks,
i know this is a bit off topic but i'm in a gay and lesbian chorus and we are
going to a music festival in montreal called gala.  at gala hundreds of gay
and lesbian choruses from around the world will be performing over the course
of a week.  if any of you will be there during the week i thought it might be
fun to hang out one night and talk ig or maybe even just sing some ig songs.  i
know it's a shot in the dark that any of you will be there but i thought i'd
ask.  please email me privately if you might be interested.  thanks :0)
