Nashville-based, Toronto-born country songstress Lindi Ortega writes songs about loneliness, desire, crumbling relationships and the plight of a struggling musician. After spending a decade as an independent artist in Canada, Ortega moved to Music City, where she continues to gain recognition for her skilled songwriting and distinct voice. The title track on her latest album, Tin Star, is for “those who are so driven by their passion that they soldier on, despite the odds being against them,” she says. With her stunning stage presence — not limited to her dark-and-stormy vocals and signature crimson lips — one imagines the odds will continue to stack in her favor. Ortega performs at The Mothlight on Saturday, March 22, at 9 p.m. $10/$12. themothlight.com. Photo by Julie Moe
