50% Indigo Girl but 100% supporter of local live music please join us in welcoming Amy Ray to The Lizard Lounge. While we all know that Amy could be playing larger rooms we are humbled at the request that she play here at our venerable institution that shares her vision of what live music can and should be doing in the community. We don't need to delve into Amy's history with The Indigo Girls - most of you know that story" but with a new solo CD Didn't It Feel Kinder out in the stores Amy is bringing her astounding music to appreciative fans in smaller venues across the country and that's a story worth telling!
"I wanted to explore new territory, and I wanted to use a different part of my voice."
In "Didn't It Feel Kinder," Amy Ray's third solo recording and most ambitious independent effort to date, the singer-
songwriter's style and lyricism reflects her many musical influences, breaking new ground for avid Indigo Girls
followers and her solo career fans alike. New listeners will follow Ray far through a rich musical landscape that is
both intimate and grand, like sneaking in on sound check at the Knitting Factory.
Independent to the core, Ray began designing the album while on tour with the Indigo Girls in the UK. "I was
huddled over my computer with my Garage Band turned on in some cold backstage area. The opening band went on
and the music was pounding through the walls, creating this montage of sounds and bass beats. I started playing the
most strident thing I could to cut through it all and get my thoughts down and it all started merging into 'Bus Bus'."
Together with former Butchies Kaia Wilson and Melissa York, and Greg Griffith on bass, Ray molded a danceable
rhythm that is at once pop, punk rock and hip hop:
