It may have taken a moment of personal reflection for her to find her voice again, but Lindi Ortega was pleasantly surprised when she did. Her voice along with her unique perspective grips your attention with her brand new EP Til The Goin’ Gets Gone.
Her new EP boasts three new songs and a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Waiting ‘Round to Die”. All songs are reminiscent of an internal war with words that became apparent after a long stretch on the road, which is addressed in the EP’s title track. Her track “What’s a Girl’s Gotta Do” is a song that represents a silver lining after an otherwise awful date. This song offers a second metaphor in her EP about the artistic life.
Ortega will also be hitting the road this March, which includes a few Canadian tour dates with country superstar Chris Stapleton and Boots and Hearts this summer! Be sure to check out the tour dates below to make sure you don’t miss them in a town near you!
Til The Goin’ Gets Gone will be released by Shadowbox Music on March 17, 2017. In the meantime check out the lyric video below of her song for “Til The Goin’ Gets Gone”!

My name is Taryn and I am a writer and music enthusiast from Mississauga, Ontario. I am a graduate of Journalism/Media studies from the University of Guelph-Humber, and while I’m currently pursuing other career options, writing is still one of my greatest passions. And combining that passion with my deep love of music was an obviously easy choice. I’ve been writing with Canadian Beats for awhile now and I’ve loved every moment. When I’m not working or writing for CB, you can usually find me in the kitchen baking, writing, at a concert or travelling to new (and old) places with my favourite people!
