FREAK

“When an entire room starts applauding a band for its consummate virtuosity before the song is even finished, AND it’s the very first song of their set, then you should probably take notice. It’s extremely difficult to single out any individual performance from this band; such is its strength in depth. There's so much talent on display... Brilliantly crafted songs, with lyrics that run their audience through an entire gamut of emotions... Yo Soy Indigo is Emily's baby, and it's incredibly beautiful - just like the audience experience.”

                       
                  
-Steve Bonsey, the man

Yo Soy Indigo is an original Prague-based group formed around Emily Thiel, a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Connecticut, USA, whose vibrant and often personal songwriting goes hand in hand with her powerful vocal performance and the brilliant assembly of the other members. The band itself was born out of a jam session in a crumbling factory in 2014, and has grown to what it is today: a mish-mosh of wonderfully weird, international musicians with blazing solos, soulful melodies, deep lyrical expression, and an ample serving of humor. The band calls itself "freak-folk-jazz", which just scratches the surface of the free-flowing genres they explore. Yo Soy Indigo’s first studio album was released in May of 2018 and is available on most digital music platforms.
