Looking Forward February 13, 17

Well, we sure had a hell of a go at it. After several incarnations and countless shows, we are left with the appreciation of all the people who came together around this band. Huge thank you to our friends, fans, and supporters over nine years of Dear Indugu’s existence. It was an honor to make music for you.

Although DI ended in late 2014, a few of our members remain musically active and you’re invited to follow our projects:

Willow Steps

Dear Indugu’s lead singer Jesse Strickman and frequent guest vocalist Leiya Mahoney launched Willow Steps in 2015. They are a harmony heavy guy/girl Indie Folk duo, singing about love and social change. They’ve released two EP’s, several music videos, and toured the West Coast. Watch their videos and more at WillowSteps.com

Makunder

Dear Indugu’s lead guitarist (and former bassist), Van Jackson-Weaver joined a local songwriter Hamilton Ulmer in the experimental pop band Makeunder. They wrestle diverse tastes – from Renaissance motet, to art rock, to 90′s R&B, synth pop, soul, & modern orchestral music – into powerful songs about death, survival, migration, & loss. Check them out at WeAreMakeunder.com
