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:
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
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

By the way, we still have Dear Indugu shirts, CD’s, pins, and stickers so don’t hesitate to drop us a line through our Facebook Page if you’d like anything and we’ll give it to you for free (we might ask you to cover the shipping if you live far from us). You can stream us on SoundCloud or BandCamp, watch music videos on our YouTube channel, and watch even more on the videos page of this site.
Keep supporting local music. Thanks for listening!
