A musical self-starter whose story-driven lyrics are fused with a modern country sound, Lisa’s music and carefree stage presence have earned her warm admiration from fans. Hailing from Castlegar, her childhood was sprinkled with the sounds of Shania Twain, Martina McBride, and the Dixie Chicks, Lisa Nicole discovered her own love of singing at the age of 8. By 15, she was playing regular jam sessions at Kootenay-area bars, which required her to be escorted on and offstage due to her age.

In 2013, Lisa debuted with the EP, “It Got Ugly” and a showcase at the Canadian Country Music Awards. Industry recognition followed with 2014 BC Country Music Association Award nominations for the Ray McAuley Horizon Award and Music Video of the Year. She went to the Canadian mainstages of Sunfest, Rockin’ River Fest, The Calgary Stampede, and Sturgis North Music Fest, and capped off a banner year by winning the 2015 BCCMA/Music BC Artist Development Project, which included a Nashville songwriting trip and placement Canada’s Music Incubator 10-week Artist Entrepreneur Program.

Next came the “Come Find Me” EP in 2016, leading to a coast-to-coast Canadian tour, BCCMA nominations, and a once-in-a-lifetime impromptu on-stage performance with Keith Urban at a Nashville pop-up concert. Plus, back-to-back Canadian Music Week Showcases in 2017 and 2018. After performing as part of 2018 Canadian Country Music Week in Hamilton, she connected with CCMA award-winning producer Jeff Johnson to produce her first full-length album, 2021’s “Where Wild Hearts Beat”.

Lisa will be joined on stage tonight by Jason Thomas, Tonnie Stewart, Terry Alton, and Chris Rhodes on drums.
