We’re back! The trip to Edmonton was exactly what we needed in preparation for the upcoming recording and release of our debut EP. Shows were played, videos were taken, whiskey was drank, and questionable decisions were made. After a few 15 hours drives through Canadian landscape, we’ve returned to Toronto. Ready to blow the lid off the Silver dollar this Monday night!

There There Indigo is on the road! Josh’s job calls for him to take long journey’s across the country in a big shiny truck. What a perfect opportunity this provides for our band, throwing our guitar and drums in the back and having me hop in the passenger seat! We are playing some great shows, plus gathering photo and video content to add to our upcoming EPK release! So far, we’ve trekked our way though Sault St. Marie, Thunder Bay, Brandon MB and Regina SK. After the four day drive we’ve arrived in Edmonton and are ready to play our first show at New City Legion tonight!

Incredible night at the Silver Dollar! There was so much energy in the room during our Toronto debut performance. Thanks to all the friends that came out!
We’ve announced our tour out west. There There Indigo will be travelling from Toronto to Edmonton, and playing around Alberta from November 4th to 11th. Dates to come shortly!

Canailles headlined the night, and blew me away. They gave an exciting interactive performance that had the whole crowd dancing! I fell in love – they’ve definately gained a new fan in me.

Ontarion Review

The Ontarion wrote a review on our debut Guelph show with the Rival Boys:

“Following them was the debut of There There Indigo, a two piece featuring singer/guitarist Josh Doerksen and drummer Julia Stead. The pair had been hard at work leading up to this appearance.

“Julia and I have been dying to play,” Doerksen said.

In the crowd was a kind of who’s-who of Guelph’s indie scene, including members of local favourites Your Neck of the Woods and the Humanzees, and even the music trivia host from Jimmy Jazz. Drummer Stead (actually the former drummer for Your Neck of the Woods) is a very present part of Guelph music, and for good reason – she’s an absolute powerhouse on the drum set.

Doerksen’s ornately melancholic song work was accentuated both by Stead’s expert backing but also by the use of a second microphone with spacey reverb applied to it, creating an atmospheric third dimension to the sound. Doerksen’s commanding versatility in both vocals and guitar-work paired with Stead’s equally versatile and exceptional drumming created a sound that was much larger than anyone would expect a two-piece band to create. The experience was completely unique and continually captivating. I look forward to seeing this band again and again in the future, and for everyone else to get a chance to see it for themselves.”

ThereThere Indigo Guelph Debut!



Guelph was good to us. Josh and I had a blast rocking out on the eBar stage! It felt great to show this city our new sound, whereas we had each been part of numerous other musical projects over the last six years.

Big thanks to Spencer Shewen and Fortnight for putting on the show. You should check out Patrick McCauley and the Rival Boys, both had amazing performances!
