Album Review: Little Red Boots by Lindi Ortega

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Canadian country singer/songwriter Lindi Ortega makes a strong impression on her debut full-length CD, Little Red Boots, aided by producer Ron Lopata, who has created a neo-rockabilly sound to support her. That's apparent at the outset on "Little Lie," with its slapback upright bass courtesy of Dave Piltch and the ricky-tick drumming of Davide Direnzo, with guitar work courtesy of Kevin Breit. (Lopata himself plays keyboards.) The 1950s feel is appropriate to Ortega's songs, which are full of references to Elvis Presley ("I'm No Elvis Presley") and "Jimmy Dean" (that is, the died-young movie star James Dean, not the country singer and sausage king).
