With the current generation of Country music having had such huge influences from Rock and Pop genres, it is refreshing to hear the captivating melodies of Mexican-Canadian songstress Lindi Ortega.
Having recorded her breakthrough album Tin Star after relocating to Nashville in 2013, Ortega ventures into a new direction of country music in her fourth full-length album Faded Gloryville. Met with praise and admiration, the album intimately transports you to this southern scene of Faded Gloryville, where you’ll be hazily greeted by its eclectic mix of misfortunate characters. With Ortega’s emotional, powerful voice you can’t help but be touched, while the refreshing variety of songs – from heart-wrenching ballads to classic foot-stompers – explore a wide variety of dejected souls. Ortega intensely maintains her now-trademark heart and ferocity throughout, and her Brighton concert shall definitely be met with excited anticipation.
Brighton’s Komedia is fortunate to play host to this gem on the 3rd of February as she finishes the UK leg of her 2016 tour. Playing once more in the UK – Islington Assembly Hall in London on the 4th of February, she will continue through mainland Europe, affecting all those who have the pleasure of being charmed by her sensational music.
