I'm sad to report that we had to say goodbye to our beloved dog Tracey yesterday. She was 14 years old and her time had come to leave us. Tracey arrived on Paul's doorstep 14 years ago (the mailman found her and brought her) as a tiny puppy. Paul was not particularly fond of the idea of having a dog at the time but soon enough this little ball of fur stole his heart and she's been his faithful companion ever since.

I'm so excited to be getting this new album out to all of you! I cant say often enough how much I LOVE this music and I so enjoy singing these classic songs! And please let me know on your order if you would like your copy autographed!

See you out there!!
Touring With The Patsy Cline Project
I did the very first live show with The Patsy Cline Project (Stouffville, ON) and it was so awesome! A little nerve wracking since it was the first one but so much fun and it is always a good feeling to get that first show under your belt..:) I've done a few others in the last 6 weeks or so and I'm happy to report that all went amazingly well and most of them were sold out! Such a great feeling! I'm really looking forward to the next tour in the spring that will take us from Manitoba, across the prairies to BC. Yay!!
New Tour Dates!
Pledge Music Goal Reached!!
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!!
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.
(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!
And here's a hint...part of the gift will be 'vintage Lisa Brokop'...that's all I'm telling you....

(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!
This'll be fun everybody! Please visit Pledge Music to get your name in the hat!
(May 6, 2015) - I am thrilled to announce the launch of a new album campaign on Pledge Music! Whoohoo! I'm so so excited about this! There have already been several people (Pledgers) who have decided to get on board and join me in the making of my new record that will pay homage to Patsy Cline...I am so grateful!
