Hello music lovers and patrons of the arts!

I’m Emily Saliers. You may know me as ½ of the Indigo Girls (we’ve been around for a solid stretch of time).

I’m going to make a solo record. My debut solo record. First one EVER, and I am excited. I would love it if you wanted to be a part of it.

I’m kind of like a groove/beats/world music/electric guitar/ukulele fanatic in an acoustic guitar singer-songwriter’s body! So, I decided to shake off any reservations and make a solo record that shines the light in some of my unexplored musical corners.
Lyris Hung is producing it. If you’ve seen Indigo Girls live any time recently, you know Lyris as the genius violin player, multi instrumentalist cohort of ours.

Pledgemusic is helping me make this dream a record!

Will you come with me and help me make this solo album? You can take part by pre-ordering a download of the record. You can purchase a new, exclusive t-shirt designed by my friend, the awesome artist and filmmaker, Denise Plumb. Maybe you want to visit the studio in NYC while I make the record? Chat over skype? Have a guitar lesson? On my Pledgemusic page you can peruse the many ways to be a part of the team that makes this album! With personal videos, I will continue to update you on the progress of the record.

You may also like to know that part of the proceeds from this Pledgemusic campaign will go to support Honor the Earth, working with indigenous communities on environmental justice issues and cultural sustainability.

A debut solo album only happens ONCE. I am beyond excited, thrilled and grateful. And READY.

Here’s hoping you will join me!
