Nashville beckoned, and Lindi Ortega answered the call.

Armed with an inimitable, irresistible singing voice The Independent hails as "a truly magnificent instrument," and a heart bursting with creative ambition, the Canadian songstress whom American Songwriter calls "the love child of Johnny Cash and Nancy Sinatra" decided to relocate to Music City from her native Toronto to birth her brand new musical offspring, Cigarettes & Truckstops.

A logical follow-up to her 2011 critically acclaimed alt-country masterpiece Little Red Boots, the 10-song Cigarettes & Truckstops further flaunts Ortega's distinctive vision; one that embraces the oft-neglected, politically incorrect realism of traditional country and frames it in a charmingly, and sometimes darkly humourous contemporary context.

BRETT DETAR (of The Juliana Theory / Zao)

Since his teens, BRETT DETAR has written, recorded and toured the world as a very respected songwriter in the indie music world. After releasing five studio albums as frontman for THE JULIANA THEORY, he has turned his attention to his love of authentic roots / Americana with his debut solo album, Bird in the Tangle. It's a record that takes its listeners on a sweeping journey across coasts and five cities, paying
homage to the legacy of storytelling found within country music in all its Yes-Hank-woulda-done-it-this-way glory.
