The New Outlaws: Young Guns

“At thirty-five, with a failed major-label deal and several critically acclaimed but little-known albums to her name, Lindi Ortega knows just how frustrating the music business can be. That hasn’t stopped the Canadian-born singer-songwriter from putting on her signature rockabilly makeup and lipstick-red cowboy boots and making some of the best music of her career. On her 2015 album, Faded Gloryville, she sits in on the lonely gigs and late-night woes of down-and-out musicians, plumbing the depths of disillusionment and despair with a voice as smooth as the slide guitar behind it.”

Garden and Gun included Lindi in their list of rising acts shaking up the country scene. Read the full list here.
