Lindi Ortega

Armed with an inimitable, irresistible singing voice Independent hails as “a truly magnificent instrument,” and a heart bursting with creative ambition, the Canadian songstress American Songwriter calls “the love child of Johnny Cash and Nancy Sinatra” decided to relocate to Music City from her native Toronto to birth her brand new musical offspring, Cigarettes & Truckstops. The album is  a riveting tour-de-force that will open up more ears and hearts to the scintillating sounds of Lindi Ortega and an appreciation of the unique perspective she brings to her craft.

Dustin Bentall  hails from Vancouver, British Columbia and it seems an unlikely place to nurture such a rustic troubadour. It seemed like an unlikely country for Rick Danko, Robbie Robertson, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, or Neil Young to be from—until people took a closer look. Up here you’ll find as deep a frontier spirit and hard luck charm as any nation. You’ll find a reverence for the tales of everyday life and loss and you’ll find a lot of people who have time to woodshed and learn their craft. Spinning songs by Neil Young, the Band, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Tom T. Hall, the Beatles, Wilco, and Steve Earle, Bentall found the heart of that music and placed it under his own landscapes.

 

Admission: 
$12, general admission
