Rising R&B star Indigo Marshall has been on the Birmingham music scene for a few years now, making an impression on its residents with her classic take on RnB. Her songwriting paired with chilling vocals regularly leaves the room a bit in awe.
Indigo Marshall’s latest EP titled The Fall, was released on 4 March, and it does exactly what music is supposed to do. When you close your eyes and listen to the title track, it’s like you are living her story yourself. A tale of heartbreak, confusion, finding yourself, all intertwined within this one EP. As a writer, I appreciate the skill and strength it takes to vulnerably tell your own story like Indigo does.
Besides, who doesn’t need a good sad girl hours playlist to get them through the long, lonely nights?
Last year, Indigo released her song ‘Questions’, which was a strong start to her EP release journey. ‘Questions’, tells you more about Indigo as an artist, and a person. She sings about questioning her past relationship, about how so many things were left unanswered, and as I’m sure many of us can attest to, how experiences like this can leave us with a lot of confusion and pain.
Indigo’s interviews are humble and you can see her calming nature, which is something I strongly believe is a must in an artist. If your fans can’t connect with you then how will you flourish?
In 2022 alone, Indigo Marshall released a music video, played ‘Love Music Hate Racism’ and sold out her headline show at the Hare and Hounds last month.
Speaking about just one RnB artist from Birmingham is almost like searching for a needle in a haystack, there’s too much talent in this city to find just one. But, Indigo Marshall definitely stands out.
