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."
