lindi ortega

Ortega’s guitar-playing chops and innate country music instincts put her in an elite group of artists; she has earned an unusually inclusive type of success with both indie cred and mainstream country recognition. From supporting Carrie Underwood on the CMA Awards to her opening slot on Chris Stapleton’s upcoming Canadian arena tour, Ortega is a sought-after and unique personality in Nashville’s music community and beyond.

"Brother can you hear me? They’ve been calling out your name…" Rugged, raspy and reserved, JJ Shiplett is a true artist. Unapologetically himself, the Alberta born singer-songwriter and performer is bold in range and musical creativity, with a passion and reverence for the art of music and performance that has captured the attention of music fans across the country. A troubadour whose songs resonate with emotional sincerity and an underdog's enduring hope, he pens anthemic songs that make you believe in something in this hard world, and others that convince you to soak it all in whiskey 'n' wine and just go dancin'. Shiplett’s music is all heart: convincing, compelling and resonant. He’s currently putting the finishing touches on his self-penned and produced debut album.
