Another Canadian Music Week show that came recommended by multiple people was Lindi Ortega playing at the Rivoli. But again, conflicts were the name of the game, and getting to the Rivoli for her set didn't fit into my schedule. Later the same night, I was told that Lindi's set went over really well, and that the new songs sounded excellent when played with a full band. And just like Vesta Varro in the previous article, Lindi Ortega booked one more night shortly after CMW to give people another chance to see what she's been working on.

Working with Juno award winning producer Ron Lopata, who also plays keyboards along side of Lindi, she has crafted a smooth show filled with alternative country and soft rock. It's not the style of music I would normally listen to, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the skill that is required to put together the show they did. Her amazing voice, which is really the focal point, is highlighted with clean vibrato, apparently kept that way using a regimen of practice and the occasional Tequila shooter. Her mildly humble on-stage personality and cute demeanour make everyone in the audience feel like her friend. Lindi released a new EP on March 4th in limited quantities, although it looks like it is already sold out.
