it has been a while since i have penned an update to the fan club on
indigo girls upcoming events. last time i did it, i mailed the notes to
everyone -- that dates it. over the last few years we have worked with
artist direct which has maintained our website and store. artist direct
is evolving into a record label so we have established a new site, with a
new server that is 100% indigo girls owned and operated. you can be
assured that all information on the site will be accurate and timely
because the source will be amy and emily and russell carter artist

speaking personally, a chapter ends and a new chapter begins. amy and
emily have sung together for twenty-one years. they have recorded
professionally for epic for over a dozen years. after many gold and
platinum records, a set of re-mastered and reissued early albums and a
retrospective it is time to look ahead and turn our attention to the
coming year. believe me, it is going to be exciting, productive,
fulfilling and successful!

the new studio album is set for release the last week of february. it is
twelve new songs, all acoustic, recorded with the current band (clare
kenny, carol isaacs and brady blade). you may have heard some of the
songs on the summer tour in the earliest stages of their development -
"you've got to show", "deconstruction", "she's saving me", "nuevos
senoritas", "starkville" and "yield." others were developed in the
studio: "hope alone", "collecting you", "moment of forgiveness", "trust",
"bitterroot" and "become you". the title of the new album is "become

i have said it about past records and i will say it again: this is the
best album amy and emily have recorded. it is produced by peter collins,
engineered by glenn matullo, mixed by bob clearmountain and mastered by
bob ludwig. it sounds incredible. i think their voices in particular are
recorded better than ever.

starting in january, we will take the first single to radio starting at
the triple a (adult alternative) format. i will post a list of all of the
aaa stations in each market and you can harass your local d.j. if he or
she is not playing the song. from adult alternative, we go to modern
adult and adult contemporary formats. again, if you are interested i will
let you know what stations we are chasing after.

we have a five-track bonus cd that will be given away with the cd in a
limited quantity when it is first released. it may be available at
certain stores only. we are also looking into giving it away to anyone
who pre-orders the album. we will let you know when and where you can
order it. just as an aside, my goal is to make everyone who has ever
bought an indigo girls record (how many of you are there? any guess?)
well aware of the release date well ahead of the time that it is being
released in february. then it is the record company's job to get it in
stores and in the hands of all of you.

on the touring front i can give you a general overview of our plans.
details have been and will be posted as soon as they are confirmed. any
specific dates that you may hear about before they are posted here are
unconfirmed and subject to change or simply inaccurate. be assured that
if we post it here, it is official. the european dates are confirmed as
posted. the next tour will be a pre-release, preview the album, club
tour. we are finalizing these dates now. next will be a series of college
dates in late march and april. amy and emily will then embark on a
lengthy summer tour starting in late may and extending through the
summer. they may take a break in the middle of it and perform some
festivals in europe. they will play theater dates in the fall. the club
and college shows will be duo acoustic and the summer ones will be with
the band.

do you have ideas for getting out the word on the new album? i would love
to hear them. send me an e-mail at with your
thoughts. look for a complete update of the site early next year. i
expect to see you, your friends and family out on road in 2002!

best regards and happy holiday - - russell carter
