"Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project"
For those of you who haven't heard I am in the midst of preparing for my next venture with "Lisa Brokop: 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 musics 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 and 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...
(August 25, 2014) - New tour dates in September!
Well...the summer is winding down here in Tennessee, even though it's still ridiculously hot and my little girl went off to kindergarten last week! Ahhhh! I can't believe it! Off she went in her khaki skirt and collared shirt and big girl back pack...so amazing! Quite an adjustment around here...more for mom and dad than for Ivy I think :)
But with the end of summer comes beginning of fall tour dates (I love fall). And I have 3 new dates coming up the first week of September. Sept 3 in Chilliwack, BC, Sept 4 in Cranbrook, BC, and Sept 5 in Spruce Grove, AB. I'm really looking forward to these shows and I'm calling this mini tour a celebration of 20 years in the biz! It will be me and 2 musicians, some old songs some new and a few in between! An intimate setting that will focus on the songs and their words and the stories that go with them.
If you want more info on how to get tickets to these please check out the Shows section of the website. Can't wait to see you on the road!
