Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers celebrate their long-standing passion for live performance on their upcoming release, Staring Down the Brilliant
Dream. The 2-disc CD features 31 songs, each hand-selected by the GRAMMY®-winning duo to capture the most memorable moments of their 2006 2009
shows. The CD reflects the spontaneity of a typical Indigo s concert and includes a mix of solo performances and other numbers backed by their full band,
plus vocal collaborations with such guests artists as Brandi Carlile and Jill Hennessey. Staring Down the Brilliant Dream encapsulates the wide range of
emotions that fill their shows with fire and wonder, from the warm, sing-a-long spirit of Saliers' Closer to Fine to the political combustion of Ray's Go.
With two decades and countless concerts behind them, it would be understandable if the duo now found it hard to
distinguish one concert from the next. Instead, as this CD proves, they remain as engaged and present onstage as ever.
For each track, Saliers and Ray have penned personal notes on how they wrote the song, what they remember about
that specific show, and why among the thousands to chose from they value this performance so much. This 2-disc
set is a brilliant reminder of all those concerts we were lucky to catch and consolation for the ones we hated to miss
