Just letting people know there are two fake accounts on Facebook right now that are DMing fans and saying I have a private account for my fans to let them know my real page has a blue check. This is a particularly insidious way to try to undermine me and my fans and commit fraud. I only have this one account for my music. The blue check does mean it’s me but I have not created a private account to tell fans that my real page has a blue check. I also do have my own private personal page but it is not the same photo as this one and I do use that page for strictly personal use and keep it separate from my interaction with fans. Please report a fake page if you see it. Sometimes the fake pages block me so I am unable to report. They are getting more bold and sneaky in their attempts. This is my only official facebook music page.

Howdy Folks. Looks like I was nominated for Artist of The Year for CMWs 19th Annual Independent Music Awards. That's pretty cool, I dig being independent. Seems this one is voter based so I shall provide the link, you just put in your name and email and vote away! http://indies.ca/voting/ xo Lindi

So.. where do I begin here? I started off this tour with a full on panic attack. My last experience with a group of females was when I was bullied many moons ago, I carried with me this idea that women in groups were mean, catty, backstabby etc. I had a fear that I was going to be awkward and unaccepted and feel misplaced, boy did that notion get turned on it’s head. I realized all these years I’ve been missing out and depriving myself of an incredible opportunity to feel what sisterly love feels like, to be uplifted by it and inspired by it. There was zero ego on this tour. Everyone was there to encourage each other and root each other on, and everyone was really amazing. Every night of this tour we shon brighter and brighter together! I truly felt on Saturday night at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto the room felt what was happening and understood that this wasn’t about anything other than pure love. We became friends over 5 shows, I never laughed so hard in my life. So that being said.. the world needs more of this! Thank you Terra Lightfoot and The Longest Road Show and all my beautiful ladies in song, amazing musicians and crew and to all that came out to see the shows! I’ve played a lot of shows in my life, but this was one that will go down in the history of my life as pure gold!!

“Vocalist and pianist Lindi Ortega steps outside of the record industry box by delivering an album of songs from 2018's Liberty on solo piano.” Thank you NPR's Alt.Latino for including me in your Latin Music For Winter 2019 roundup! https://loom.ly/X2Ks4YM
My voice was suffering tremendously for months from an issue I had with my in ear monitors being damaged due to the equipment getting bashed around on my flights, because I was hearing things improperly it caused me to overcompensate with my vocals and sing with poor technique, this got worse and worse and caused horrible anxiety and depression the likes of which I couldn’t even articulate how bad it made me feel. It got to the point where I didn’t even want to sing, where I was sheepish and embarrassed to sing. Where I had lost all confidence. I wanted to quit. I wanted to never sing again. Something deep inside, however, didn’t want to give up on myself. Some little tiny flicker kept alight, it was small and struggling to burn, but it was there and it told me to try anything, any last ditch effort I could. I started meetings with a vocal technician and I started seeing a therapist. At first it all seemed futile... I hated myself so deeply.. I felt like an utter and complete failure. I’m happy to report after much hard work on my mental health and my voice, things are improving and I feel much more positive. I feel like I can find my passion that went missing for quite a while there. I think it’s coming back. I just wanted to share this in case anyone else out there is thinking of giving up on themselves. Maybe give yourself one last shot. You might find that it’s worth it, and that you’re worth it, even if you think you hate yourself. You are worth fighting for! #bellcanadaletstalk

I'm so thankful for everyone who's supported me in this wacky idea, especially my producer Skylar Wilson and the best pianist a girl could ask for Robbie Crowell. http://presave.tweematic.com/libertypianosongbook
