    Lindi Ortega

    Singer-Songwriter

    There's a sign on the outskirts of town. A buzzard sits atop it, the grass brown and parched below. It's dusty, faded, chipped at the edges, graffiti filling the empty white spaces, a bullet hole or two visible in the large, black letters that read: Welcome to Faded Gloryville. Leave your dreams behind.

    In the eyes and imagination of acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega it's a place we've all been, we're all familiar with or will one day know all too well. Some visit. Some stay. Some escape. Some leave only to return again. And for Lindi, it was also the source of inspiration — in title and in spirit — for her stunning new collection of country-kissed songs that make up her fourth full-length release set to come out on new Last Gang Record imprint, The Grand Tour. It is an album that is filled with the sights and sounds and souls of those who've found themselves in Faded Gloryville, brought to its saloons, flophouses and cheap motels by drink, by debt, by vanity, heartbreak, failure, fear or misfortune.

    The Walcotts

    Music

    The Walcotts play genre-bending Americana music. 

     

    Armed with a large lineup, the Los Angeles-based band — whose membership includes two singers, a horn section, a fiddle player, a pedal steel guitarist, a pianist, and a rhythm section — take inspiration from more than a half century's worth of American traditions. The result is a sound that nods to the Band's folk-rock, Little Feat's swampy jazz, Bruce Springsteen's heartland anthems, and everything in between. It's broad, big-sounding music, with the Walcotts swelling their lineup to as many as nine members during their acclaimed live shows. 

     

    The name, of course, is a reference to The Band's "The W.S. Walcott Medicine Show," a 1970 tune that paid tribute to the traveling medicine shows of Levon Helm's youth. For a group that proudly wears its influences on its sleeve, though, the Walcotts aren't some revivalist band, stuck mimicking the retro sounds of an era that's long since past. Instead, they make roots music for a modern age, with songs that spin stories and melodies that take aim at the heart as well as the head. 

     

    Formed in 2012, The Walcotts began spreading their music through multiple TV and film placements, while also earning a well-deserved rep as one of the West Coast's best live bands. Opening dates with Honeyhoney, Steve Windwood, and Chris Isaak came first, followed by a West Coast tour with Chris Stapleton in 2015, mere days after Stapleton swept the CMA Awards. Live, the Walcotts bring the nuances of their recorded material to life, with every show building upward toward an explosion of horns, organ, guitar and dual vocals. 

     

    The Walcotts will continue building upward in 2016, when their full-length debut — featuring co-writes with John Alagia (Dave Matthews, John Mayer) and some co-production by Ross Hogarth (John Mellencamp, Melissa Etheridge) — is released.
