About the Indigo Girls: Amy Ray and Emily Saliers first met in elementary school in Georgia. It was only a matter of a few years before they began to perform together as high school students in the Atlanta metropolitan area. They later released a self-produced full length album in 1987 and then contracted with a major record company in 1988. However, these women are more than just incredible musicians. Each of them have accomplished a number of tasks including founding a nonprofit organization, opening a restaurant, as well as becoming accomplished writers. On their fourteenth studio album, the Grammy-winning folk-rock duo delivers a beautifully crafted batch of songs that revel in spirited simplicity. Alternating richly textured storytelling with moody ruminations on modern-world worries, Beauty Queen Sister reveals a fierce longing for a more idyllic existence while still celebrating the extraordinary in everyday living.
