Ortega announces EP

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 – Lindi Ortega will release a four-song EP, "Til the Goin' Gets Gone," on March 17, she announced today.

The release contains three originals and a cover of Townes Van Zandt's "Waiting 'Round To Die" and will be released on Shadow Box Music.

Ortega recorded "Til The Goin' Gets Gone" in a converted East Nashville manor, where therapy horses linger on the property. Recording with her longtime guitarist James Robertson, Ortega satisfied a personal goal to co-produce, which she did with Jay Tooke and Jason "Rowdy" Cope.

Although classic country is an indelible part of her musical history, the EP also sets the tone for the next chapter of her career: "I'll always love Loretta, Dolly and Patsy. But I just want more space. I want more ambience."

Songs on the EP are:
1. Til The Goin' Gets Gone
2. What A Girl's Gotta Do
3. Waiting 'Round To Die
4. Final Bow

Ortega also will be touring with Canadian dates opening for Chris Stapleton.

CD reviews for Lindi Ortega

Faded Gloryville CD review - Faded Gloryville
Lindi Ortega surprised everyone with a sonic change of direction on her 2011 album, "Little Red Boots," the introduction to a wonderful trilogy of loss and love told through her haunting voice and throwback country music. After culminating the unofficial trilogy in 2013, she took a little time to refocus before releasing her latest. Despite releasing three extremely strong offerings in a short period, Ortega has remained a relatively underground artist. While Kacey Musgraves and »»»
Tin Star CD review - Tin Star
Lindi Ortega continues her whirlwind release schedule with "Tin Star." Fans of her trademark sound will find a lot to like this time around. While continuing to dabble in a variety of genres, Ortega still manages to maintain enough consistency to tie it neatly together with her last two full lengths, creating an unofficial trilogy of songs about music, love and death.

Cigarettes & Truckstops CD review - Cigarettes & Truckstops
Lindi Ortega followed up her impressive label debut with a brilliant 10-song collection. The bold statement may appear hyperbolic, especially when discussing a relatively new artist, but when her debut garnered comparisons to the late Johnny Cash and legendary country artist Dolly Parton, it stands as accurate. "Cigarettes and Truckstops" is a darker album than "Little Red Boots," trading the poppier element of her early songs for a gritty blues infused sound. »»»
