“Vocalist Indigo Love is somewhat of an introvert. Although you’d never guess it by the way she can belt out a tune on stage. “I’m pretty much a reserved person,” Love said. “A lot of people don’t know I sing.” A Washington, D.C. native, Love said most of her co-workers at her day job aren’t even aware that she’s a performer; and she plans to keep it that way. “I don’t want people to know that I sing until [they] come to a show and experience that,” Love said. “If they ever stumble upon me I want it to be one of the best surprises they could have ever imagined.” ”

“What distinguishes "The Gift" from the seemingly endless stream of sound-alike smooth jazz albums can be summed up in one word: Indigo. She's the vocalist who makes the album stand at least somewhat apart from the pack despite a lot of familiar tunes and grooves. Modestly produced, the disc features Indigo interpreting a collection of her favorite romantic ballads in ways that are alternately funky ("What You Won't Do for Love"), sultry ("It's Raining Outside") and tender ("Killing Me Softly"). One gets the impression that this is the singer's personal hit parade, but more often than not her interpretations radiate warmth and lyricism as well as affection. -- Mike Joyce”
