Released in 1989, Indigo Girls' eponymous major label debut sold over two million copies under the power of singles “Closer to Fine” and “Kid Fears” and turned Indigo Girls into one of the most successful folk duos in history. Over a thirty-five-year career that began in clubs around their native Atlanta, Georgia, the multi-Grammy-winning duo of Emily Saliers and Amy Ray has recorded sixteen studio albums, sold over 15 million records, and built a dedicated, enduring following across the globe. Rolling Stone describes them as the “ideal duet partners.” Committed and uncompromising activists, they work on issues like immigration reform (El Refugio), LGBTQ advocacy, education (Imagination Library), death penalty reform, and Native American rights. They are co-founders of Honor the Earth, a non-profit dedicated to the survival of sustainable Native communities, Indigenous environmental justice, and green energy solutions.
Their latest record, Look Long is a stirring and eclectic collection of songs that finds the duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers reunited in the studio with their strongest backing band to date. “We joke about being old, but what is old when it comes to music? We’re still a bar band at heart,” says Saliers. “While our lyrics and writing approach may change, our passion for music feels the same as it did when we were 25-years-old.” “As time has gone on, our audience has become more expansive and diverse, giving me a sense of joy,” she adds. To hear those collective voices raise into one, singing along and overpowering the band itself, one realizes the importance Indigo Girls’ music has in this moment. In our often-terrifying present, we are all in search of a daily refuge, a stolen hour or two, to engage with something that brings us joy, perspective, or maybe just calm. As one bar band once put it, “We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains…we go to the Bible, we go through the work out.” For millions, they go to the Indigo Girls. On Look Long they’ll find a creative partnership certain of its bearings, forging a way forward.
corook aka Corinne Savage (yes that’s their real last name) is a singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and a huge f*ckin dork. No but seriously. They can solve a Rubik’s cube in under a minute (depending on how they’re feeling that day.) This freckled chubby babe was born and raised just outside of downtown Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where they grew up listening to Drake, Gwen Stefani and Mac Miller (RIP.) They went to a performing arts high school (yes, just like Victorious) where they came out as QUEERAF their senior year. They then went to Berklee College of Music (wow – Owen Wilson voice) and graduated with TWO degrees (barely.) Corinne currently resides in Nashville Tennessee (howdy.) They spend most of their time writing and producing music for their artist project “corook” (boop!) locked away in their room, alone (they blame it on Coronavirus but they’re actually just anti-social.) They’ve co-written HIT songs like “this entire bio is a joke” and is an Award winning Person of Doing Things. They’re 28 and VERY cute.
