“Five Minutes With” Local Toronto Pop Musician Indigo

Meet Indigo: your new feisty, female voice on the pop scene. Born and raised in Toronto in the early nineties, Indigo grew up listening to The Spice Girls, Madonna, Britney and Timbaland, who are all major influential figures for the young pop singer.

After years of creative education, spanning from formative years in an artistic household to dance and drama lessons, Indigo began writing her own original material in 2012. It was the iN Bullseye 2018 grand prize of $10, 000 (from Slaight Music and imagiNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival) which allowed her to begin working with JUNO award-winning producer Lantz, on a new collection of songs to be released over the coming year. The first of those tracks, “The Light” is now available for streaming and download on all major platforms.
