Lindi Ortega (born May 28, 1980) is a country singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario, who had lived in Nashville, Tennessee then married and moved to Western Canada in 2017. She spent nearly a decade as an independent artist in the Toronto music scene, releasing two albums and an EP in that time. She has been described as “Toronto’s best kept secret” and nicknamed “Indie Lindi.”

Ortega left Last Gang management and records in November 2017. She has since released Til The Goin’ Gets Gone EP and her full-length Liberty on her own label Shadowbox Music. In July 2014, Ortega was nominated for two Canadian Country Music Association Awards – Female Artist of the Year and Roots Artist of the Year.
