Lindi Ortega

Here is who to listen for this week on World Cafe with host Talia Schlanger: 

Monday, May 14th – Caroline Rose 
 

Caroline Rose's new album is a dramatic departure from the alt-country sound of her first two albums. On Loner, her razor-sharp wit and smart lyrics tackle subjects like single motherhood to fighting the patriarchy. We'll discuss that, her sonic evolution, and ambitions as a producer.   

Tuesday, May 15th – Lindi Ortega 
 

It’s a family affair this week in eTown, as mother-and-son folk duo Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear pull up a couple of stools and share their intimate and soulful brand of acoustic music for the listening audience. Also with us is Canadian-born / Nashville-based singer/songwriter Lindi Ortega. After extensive touring as a backup singer for The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, Lindi decided to step to front of the stage, where quickly her music has already been nominated for two Juno Awards and two Canadian Country Music Awards.
