Bluegrass Situation and Lindi dig into Townes Van Zandt's immense influence over songwriters, and how his catalogue reinvigorated Lindi's passion, which ultimately helped inspire the birth of her brand new EP, Til The Goin' Gets Gone.
Following the release of her last critically-acclaimed album, Faded Gloryville, Lindi Ortega is back with a new EP, Til The Goin' Gets Gone. This unadorned collection, available worldwide on March 17, includes three originals and a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s "Waiting ‘Round To Die." Plus, Lindi will be joining Chris Stapleton on the road throughout Canada.
"Loretta Lynn knows how to pen one heck of a “love” song. Among her biggest hits is an ode written in 1967, recorded in January of the next year, and released in February of 1968. “Fist City” was a bold challenge to the woman making “brags around town that you’ve been a-lovin’ my man.”
The chart-topping song influenced a whole new generation of women, including Lindi Ortega, Brandy Clark and Margo Price.
“Lindi Ortega, Toronto-raised but now a resident of Nashville, Tennessee, is rather proud of her second home town.
She is more than happy to show you around it, too, and its country music bars and rooms that she's played or drunk in, often listening in on conversations to provide fodder for her sweet and sour songs.”
