Toronto-born, Tennessee-based singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega returned to her hometown to promote her latest album “Cigarettes & Truckstops“. The hotly anticipated sold-out show at The Rivoli was a blend of roots rock, country and glamour. Absolutely charming, she engaged with the crowd between songs with personal anecdotes about the songs, including her current hit single “The Day You Die”
Sporting her trademark red cowboy shit-kickers, Ortega was backed by openers Dustin Bentall & The Smokes, featuring fiddle virtuoso Kendel Carson (who first wowed me when she toured with Deep Dark Woods).
Lindi Ortega is currently on a cross-country tour as part of the JD Originals series.
