LINDI ORTEGA / Cigarettes & Truckstops [2012]

Canadian country girl Lindi Ortega has been chipping away at making a name for herself for a good ten years and with her 2012 album Cigarettes & Truckstops she should receive the national recognition she rightfully deserves.
Her vocals sound close to Dolly Parton but her music sounds like a smoky bar ode to Emmylou Harris and Patsy Cline. She's got a playful, smoldering vocal style that's sultry, sad and exploding with enthusiastic soul.  It's vintage bluesy country that's hard to not like.
