Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project
The Patsy Cline Project
For those of you who haven't heard I am in the midst of preparing for my next venture with "The Patsy Cline Project". I'm super excited about this for a number of reasons.
First off, I'm a HUGE Patsy Cline fan and I think she is one of country music's greatest ladies of all time with a voice like no other. Secondly, this will be a 'full circle' kind of project for me. I used to sing Patsy songs when I was just getting started because I didn't have songs of my own and now I'm coming back around to pay homage to this amazing artist by singing them again.
I'm planning to go in the studio to record a new album which will include several of the classics like 'Sweet Dreams', 'Walkin' After Midnight' and 'Crazy' but I'll also be including some that I'll write specifically for the project. I've already got one or two ready to go and I'm so loving the chance to create 'new' classic country music. Can't wait to share some of these with you!
There is also going to be a lot of touring coming up so stay tuned for updates on that! Here's a little sample of what's to come...
Pledge Music Goal Reached!!
(July 7/2015) I am so excited to announce that my pledge music goal has been reached!! I am so grateful and appreciative of everyone who made a pledge on this project! You are all truly amazing and I thankyou!!
But I also want to let you know but just because we have reached the goal it doesn't stop there. There is still a chance to join in with the making of this record. And the good news is that a portion of all proceeds that come in from this point on will go to operationsong.org
Operationsong.org is an organization that empowers veterans and active-duty military to tell their stories through the process of songwriting in creative and therapeutic settings. I have had the chance to go through this process with a very courageous woman veteran named Nastatia Mason and it was a truly amazing afternoon and healing for all involved. Music and songwriting can be such a magical thing!
So let's keep rockin' along everybody! There will be more fun updates for all pledgers right up until the release date of my album on Aug. 1st. If you haven't had a chance to join in yet go to pledgemusic.com/lisabrokop to find out how to pre-order your copy of the album and have access to a bunch of other exclusive offers.
Tracking Day Is Complete!!
(June 10, 2015) - Yesterday, June 9th, was perhaps one of the most amazing days I've experienced in quite a while! We were in the studio recording tracks for my new album, 'The Patsy Cline Project'. We tracked 10 songs total, 7 Patsy Cline classics and 3 original songs. It truly was a wonderful day! I so enjoyed singing those classic songs..feels like home to me. And the musicians were absolutely stellar! So so good!!
I want to thank everyone (my pledgers) for joining me on this journey so far on pledgemusic.com/lisabrokop . I so appreciate your support in making this record!
But there is still lots to do! We've got the foundation laid for the album so now we will add the lead vocals, bgs, extra instruments, etc...
For those of you who haven't had a chance to take a look you can go to pledgemusic.com/lisabrokop and find out how to join in. There will be a lot more fun updates and behind the scenes glimpses as I finish the album and of course there are plenty of exclusive items still available.
And The Winner Is...
(May 25, 2015) - I announced the winner of my Pledge Music gift give-away on Sunday and the winner was Gene Martin from Minneapolis, MN. Congratulations Gene!
Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has made a pledge so far...you are all appreciated. There is still tons of fun to come throughout the campaign so for those of you who would like to be a part of the process of making my new record you can go to Pledge Music and join in. I'm having a blast so far! Thanks!
Two Days Left
(May 22, 2015) - On Sunday, May 24th I'll be drawing a name from my pledgers...my amazing and wonderful pledgers...and that person will receive a gift from me. So that means that there is still time to join in friends! If you'd like to have a chance to be in the draw you can join my campaign at Pledge Music to get your name in the hat!
I'm in Surrey, BC this week with Ivy visiting family so I'll be doing the draw from here. This is gonna be fun! Thanks everybody!

(May 15, 2015) - Hello friends! My Pledge Music campaign is going great!! I am almost at 30% of my goal and I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you again to all who have made pledges for the project!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm so grateful for this support and I would like to do something special for all my Pledgers.
I am going to be putting all names of my list of pledgers into 'a hat' and on Sunday, May 24th I will draw one out and that person will receive a gift from me! So that means if you've already pledged...you are 'in the hat'. If you haven't yet you have until Sunday May 24th to be included. The cut off time will be 9:00am EST.
I'll be in my hometown on Sunday (Surrey, BC) so I'll be drawing the name from there. And I promise if my mom's name is picked then I'll get her a separate gift and pick another name! Ha!
