This US duo comprises Amy Ray (12 April 1964, Decatur, Georgia, USA; vocals/guitar) and Emily Saliers (b. 22 July 1963, New Haven, Connecticut, USA; vocals/guitar), who had met aged 10 and 11 while at school in Decatur, Georgia, USA. Soon they started to perform together, initially as the B Band, then Saliers And Ray. Their first cassette, Tuesdays Children, mainly consisted of cover versions. They changed their name to Indigo Girls while at Emory University in Atlanta. Their early releases were on their own label, J. Ellis Records, named after an English teacher on whom they shared a crush. These commenced with a single, Crazy Game, in 1985, followed by an EP the following year, produced by Frank French of Drivin N Cryin. An album, Strange Fire, produced by John Keane, featured re-recorded versions of their strongest early songs, Crazy Game and Land Of Canaan.
