Lindi Ortega checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lindimusic) on Saturday (November 1). The Canadian singer songwriter tells readers:
So I have been spending my days writing songs. I look to Bruce Springsteen as a mentor of sorts. I religiously watch his VH1 storytellers DVD and view it as a tutorial for songwriting 101. He is such a wonderful lyricist.
I’ve also been seeking inspiration from new music I’ve picked up (yes I still buy CDs).
Lately the Laura Marling CD is getting multiple spins. I did my best to fill in Laura Marling’s parts when I toured with Noah and The Whale. It compelled me to get her CD since I heard the reason she didn’t tour with Noah and The Whale this time around was because her own career was taking off. Congrats to her! She deserves it. Not only is she a supremely gifted singer and songwriter but she is absolutely beautiful.
The full post at MySpace has since been removed.
