Indigo Soul performs at the Side Door Jazz Club on Thursday, April 25 from 8:00 to 10:30 pm. Tickets are $20.00.
Born in the Connecticut River Valley, this strictly rhythm and vocals trio is fronted by the silky voice of Carol Piro and backed by rhythm aces, Jeremy Coster on bass and Steve Fava on percussion and supporting vocals.
Starting out as an experimental project in the Fall of 2016, Indigo Soul found receptive audiences right out of the gate. Encouraged by the fan response, they built a repertoire rooted in a blend of mostly obscure, yet some more familiar, downtempo, jazz and r&b grooves that have a rather mesmerizing effect on the unsuspecting listener. The unembellished combination of the solid rhythm section and the soothing sound of Carol’s seasoned vocal interpretations of select tracks from the likes of Zero 7, Thievery Corporation, Amy Winehouse, Melody Gardot, Sade, Massive Attack and others, make for a sonic symbiosis for the live music appreciators discerning ear.
The three kindred music-mates that comprise this novel act continually work to keep their repertoire fresh and intriguing. Their coherent sound imbues an atmospheric vibe that captivates attention, piques musical minds and provokes a rhythmic sway from dancers and listeners alike. Indigo Soul’s surprisingly simple yet sophisticated sound is enchanting listening rooms, house concerts, micro-festivals and upscale venues on the CT live music scene.
“Indigo Soul’s vibe gave us the feeling like we were in a NYC underground jazz club. Carol’s sultry vocals, backed by the tight musicianship of Steve Fava and Jeremy Coster lit the room on fire with their jazzy numbers and R&B repertoire. Truly a hit here at The Buttonwood Tree!”
– Anne-Marie Cannata McEwen, Executive Director, The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts Center, Middletown, CT
“Indigo Soul delivers consistently rapturous experiences, taking the concept of “less is more” to an art form. Fronted by soulful songstress Carol Piro, they have played our Burning Woman and Tribal Music Summit festivals and given more intimate concerts at our venue, The Sanctuary in East Haddam, to enthralled audiences. They are well-rehearsed, professional & reliable and do an exquisite job getting their sound right.”
– Jen Taylor, Co-Executive Director, The Sanctuary at Shepardfields, East Haddam, CT
“Indigo Soul is a unique blend of instruments and voices using space as a key element in feeling the music. An emotionally driven group that lays down captivating contours of soundscapes, guiding you through deep groove trances to uplifting get up and dance tunes.”
– John & Darcie Boiano, House Concert Hosts, Ashford, CT

– Tracey Kroll, owner/operator of The Sound Retreat, Chester, CT

– Carolyn Newman, booking manager, Brushmill by the Waterfall, Chester, CT
