Lisa Nicole brings Come Find Me tour home to Castlegar

Castlegar country singer Lisa Nicole is on the road touring her latest EP and she’s bringing her show home on Saturday, Oct. 1.

Castlegar country singer Lisa Nicole is on the road touring her latest EP and she’s bringing her show home on Saturday, Oct. 1.

Lisa Nicole released Come Find Me on iTunes and LisaNicoleMusic.com on Sept. 6, after she’d started touring in Cabri, Sask. on Aug. 29. Cabri is a town of about 400 people and Lisa Nicole played to a small crowd of 25, starting the tour with an intimate show.

“It’s one of my favourite places to play, because the first time I ever played there, they were so funny, they did a call and answer with these goat sounds,” she said.

The new EP features the single “Where Love Goes to Die,” which Lisa Nicole released on June 20 before releasing a music video for the song on July 15. So far, Lisa Nicole says fans have responded well to the new album.

“Some people are singing along and a lot of people I think can relate to them,” she said.

Lisa Nicole is on the road in a Ford Escape sponsored by a local dealer wrapped in Lisa Nicole decals that were also sponsored by a local business. The tour has included a number of TV and radio interviews, including one with Global News Morning in Halifax and one with Daytime Ottawa.

Lisa Nicole is excited to bring the tour back home to Castlegar. “I’m just really looking forward to sharing my new songs with my hometown and I really appreciate their support,” she said.

Fans of all ages will have a chance to meet with her during a meet and greet sound check party. “It’s basically just a chance for my fans and especially my under age fans, because it’s open to under age to come and meet me, say hi, take photos, get signed CDs. Kind of a better chance to chat with me.”

Both the meet and greet and the evening show will take place at the Element. The meet and greet is at 2 p.m. and doors for the show open at 8 p.m. Jason Thomas who’s been playing with Lisa Nicole for over 11 years and travelling with her on the Come Find Me tour will open the show at 9 p.m. Local musicians Tonnie Stewart, Terry Alton and Jim Fike will join Thomas and Lisa Nicole on stage for her set.

If a new EP and tour weren’t enough excitement for the young star, she also learned last Wednesday that she’s been nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year by the BC Country Music Association.

“It’s always an honour to be recognized for something I love to do and something I’m so passionate about,” said Lisa Nicole.
