Indigo De Souza | Music Artists on Indie Accent

Indigo De Souza

c. 2016 | ORIGIN: NORTH CAROLINA

Indigo De Souza is an American singer-songwriter from Asheville, North Carolina. Her most recent album Any Shape You Take was released in August 2021. She has been noted for creating "intimate, anxious indie rock songs [that] wrangle with disappointment and relationship challenges," with personal and confessional lyrics.

De Souza grew up in the conservative small town of Spruce Pine, North Carolina, where she and her artist mother faced difficulty fitting in. Her family moved to Asheville during her teen years.

With encouragement from her mother, De Souza started making music at age 9, and began self-producing her own recordings in 2016. Her first release was an EP titled Boys that was recorded in a friend's garage, followed by another EP titled Don't Cry Just Do in 2017. She self-released her first full-length album, I Love My Mom, in June 2018. Saddle Creek Records discovered the album and gave it a proper release in 2021. The album gained notice from journalists for De Souza's lyrics on taboo topics.
