Tin Star (Lindi Ortega)

Lindi Ortega


Canadian singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega has released her latest album, Tin Star, earning her another gold star on her list of achievements.

At first glance you assume the album will be as country as can be. However, when you get into it, you realise that it’s not as country as once assumed. It’s actually quite beautiful.

It’s the softer, more fragile songs that are the pick on this album. Songs About is a great way to cap off a fairly solid effort. It’s songs like this that make it worth the listen.

If each song was just Ortega, her voice and a piano or guitar it would have been a hole in one. There’s parts where it feels as though there’s too much. Getting back to the basics would have done the trick.
