Indigo Road - Re-release Simple
Indigo Road re-release “Simple” ft Heidi Jo Hines, daughter of ex-Wings guitarist, Denny Laine via Big Bed Records on Sep 25th
Big Bed Records is to re-release Indigo Roads single, “Simple” ft Heidi Jo Hines, daughter of ex-Wings guitarist, Denny Laine. The track will be officially released on 25th September and will be available on Spotify and other digital platforms. Its mood of quiet simplicity is well in tune with the desires of many both during and after these strange and troubling times. A song of hope.
The single comes from the band’s debut album, “Perfect Moment” which, for legal reasons, was never released on its completion ten years ago. Big Bed Records has now obtained the rights to the album and will release it this Autumn.
Ten years ago, Indigo Road was a small but increasingly popular group whose debut album was greatly anticipated among a growing band of afficionadoes. The reasons for its non-release is a long and tangled story but now, Mark Herbert, the writer, guitarist and founder of Indigo Road and owner of Big Bed Records, has now reclaimed the music from those sessions.
The idea behind Indigo Road was to form a loose collective of musicians and singers. It is a similarly collective idea to the one Mark is now pursuing with F/H Block Music and the band Breakfast Club.
The original Indigo Road line-up featured Heidi Jo Hines on vocals, rock royalty, daughter of Denny Laine of Wings. She featured on the band’s debut single, “Simple”. The band toured the North West and gigged selectively in London before a second line-up morphed out of the first one, as per the band’s collective ethos. Belle Erskine emerged on lead vocals along with a collection of high quality musicians including her husband Richard and Kylie’s then keyboard player. Belle subsequently featured on all the other tracks on the album.
A third vocalist was in the pipeline for the follow up album but it was not to be. Now, a decade later the album is all but ready to go.
Indigo Road founder and Big Bed owner, Mark Herbert, said:
“I am delighted to have got my paws back on the masters of “The Perfect Moment”. It brings back great memories of putting the album together while other things were seeking to tip everything upside down. Belle’s vocals are fabulous and Heidi demonstrates on the first single, “Simple”, why she is so highly rated.”
