Roots-country with a soulful edge
This two-time Canadian Country Music Awards’ Roots Artist of the Year has toured with Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, k.d. lang and supported Carrie Underwood at the Country Music Awards. Anchored by her evocative soprano voice, haunting songwriting and exquisite guitar playing, Ortega can inspire crowds to dance with a roots-y rhythm or enchant them with a heartfelt ballad. The Toronto-born, Nashville-based artist’s latest EP, Til the Goin’ Gets Gone, offers further proof of her musical mastery and raw vocal power.
“ [Ortega] bears comparison with country forebears Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn.” —THE GUARDIAN
