indigo girls rocking into town  

the worlds most popular female folk/rock duo, indigo girls, are heading to

emily saliers and amy ray will return to our shores for their third australasian
tour in october and will play sydney in november, showcasing songs from their
latest studio album, despite our differences.

making this record was really different for us, saliers said.

we were all in the same room together: amy and i at producer mitchell frooms
home studio with engineer, david boucher, and the band.

it was like a little family experience, which is really, really different from
being in a huge, cold studio where everyones isolated.

and there was a really strong trust factor with mitchell. he has a great
musical ear, particularly for harmonies and things like that. if he heard a note
that didnt sit well with him, hed tell us. it was a real exchange.

the band has long been a favourite on the lesbian circuit and in two decades
together has notched up seven grammy nominations and more than 12 million album

despite the groups successes and undoubted performance ability, ray said
recording despite our differences still presented a challenge.

we felt intimidated by mitchells abilities, ray said.

to go in and just put ourselves out there and trust that hes going to take it
and work with it  that felt like a risk, but in a good way.

its nice to get your adrenaline up. at this age you really have to keep trying
things you havent done.

indigo girls play the enmore theatre on 6 november. tickets start at $79.90.
bookings: enmore theatre 9550 3666 , ticketek 132 849,
