Famous Musicians from Indianapolis

Indianapolis has always been home to a variety of musical talents. From indie punk to soul to especially jazz, the city is either home to, the birthplace of, or the stomping grounds of many talented artists. Here are just a few of them.

Billy Henderson: If you’re a Spinners fan, you know who Billy Henderson was. The soul group was created in 1954 by four high school friends. Famous for songs like “I’ll Be Around” and “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love,” the Spinners earned nominations for six Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Sadly, Henderson himself passed away in 2007 due to complications from diabetes.
