SINGER/SONGWRITER LINDI ORTEGA TO JOIN RAUL MALO ON TOUR
THE DRIFTER E.P AVAILABLE NOW
Santa Monica, California, March 26, 2009 – Lindi Ortega tells it like it is: her songs are filled with all the excruciating details of troubled love, things that are not often spoken but are instantly recognized by those who have passed the same way. And that voice – striking and distinctive, its one that can soar with beautiful clarity. Lindi will bring her blend of alt-pop, country, folk to the stage as she heads joins former Mavericks lead singer Raul Malo on a string of east coast dates.
Lindi’s Cherrytree/Interscope debut, The Drifter E.P., is currently available in stores and online. Produced by Ron Lopata the four song set is a breathtaking glimpse of things to come.
Lindi was born in Canada to a Mexican father and a Northern Irish mother, a rich heritage that is reflected in her songwriting. She grew up listening to the greats of country music (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton) and the legends of folk fusion (Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Leonard Cohen). Lindi’s music draws from these influences and is delivered through her striking and distinctive voice. After a string of independent releases Lindi signed with Cherrytree Records and is currently working on a full length album that will be released later this year.
