indigo girl amy ray goes 'stag'
amy ray, one half of epic recording artists the indigo girls, will release
her first solo album next year. due march 6 on her own not-for-profit daemon
records, the 10-song "stag" is said to reflect more of her southern punk and
indie rock influences than the pop/folk she creates with emily saliers in the
indigo girls.

ray is backed by durham, n.c.-based punk band the butchies on five tracks
that were recorded by the db's chris stamey. also collaborating with ray on
the self-produced set are daemon artists the rock*a*teens and danielle howle,
as well as the female rock triumvirate of joan jett, luscious jackson's kate
schellenbach, and the breeders' josephine wiggs on the song "hey castrator."

ray is planning to kick off a tour with the butchies in late march to support
the album.

the indigo girls' 15-year career was celebrated with the october release of
"retrospective," a 16-track anthology. the set debuted at no. 123 on the
billboard 200.
