Imagine being part of a duo for decades. Things are working well: you’re successful, you’re creative, you’re enjoying yourself and the music you make and yet…you feel that something is missing. What do you do?
Emily Saliers, best known as one of the two Indigo Girls, went out on her own last year for the first time ever. And while she was scared and uncertain about making such a dramatic change, it was something she knew she had to do in order to grow and develop as an artist.
Saliers took a deep breath and, with the help of producer and violinist Lyris Hung and musician Lucy Wainwright Roche, released her first ever solo album, ‘Murmuration Nation.’ We caught up with her at this year’s 30A Songwriters Festival in FL to talk about the album and the music she’s making on her own.
