has spent countless days on the road touring behind 2012’s Cigarettes and Truckstops, but the wait for the Nashville-by-way-of-Toronto artist’s next release is almost over. Ortega’s latest effort, Tin Star, was produced by Dave Cobb (Shooter Jennings, Secret Sisters) and is set for release next week.
“It’s always my goal to raise the bar with each record I put out. I have witnessed so much talent living in Nashville that has inspired me to push myself even further,” says Ortega. “I like to work with different musicians and producers to change the feel of every release. I don’t want to risk making the same record over and over. Working with a new group brings a new spirit and new ideas to the music.”
Tin Star is set for release on Oct. 8 via Last Gang Records.
