Lisa Nicole returns to the Kootenays before cross-Canada tour

The country-rock star is busy with a music video and many tour stops this summer

Country-rock singer Lisa Nicole has five shows scheduled in the Kootenays near the end of July

Country-rock sensation Lisa Nicole is one busy lady; not only is she in the midst of planning to film a music video but she’s also touring across Canada over the summer and will be making stops in the Kootenays.

The music video is set for filming on August 18 at a western movie set in Langley and she’s putting the word out for anyone who may want a role.

“I’m filming a music video for my latest single, ‘It Got Ugly’. It will be going to country radio in August,” said Nicole. “If anyone wants to help out, western cowgirls, cowboys and outlaws are welcome. I will also be doing an Indiegogo [crowd funding] campaign to raise some funds for the release.”

In September, she is off to Edmonton for a showcase at the Canadian Country Music Association before embarking on a tour that will take her across the country with longtime fellow artist, Jason Thomas (who is from Trail).

“We will be on the road for over five weeks; all the way to Nova Scotia,” she said. “I love it and wouldn’t trade what I do for anything.”

Nicole’s exhausting tour lineup will also see her rocking the big stage at Rockin’ River Musicfest in Mission, B.C. August 17.

“I’ll be on the main stage, the same stage Brad Paisley is headlining. It’s going to pretty cool,” she said.

Nicole will also be doing no less than five gigs locally in July:

– Wednesday, July 24: Music in the Park, 7 p.m. at Kinnaird Park in Castlegar

– Friday, July 26: Marketfest, 6:15 p.m. in Nelson and 9 p.m. at the Lions Head Pub in Robson

– Saturday, July 27: Kootenay Festival at 3:30 p.m. adjacent to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre and The Kootenay Gallery of Art on Heritage Way; then she’s off to Trail at 9 p.m. at the Arlington Bar and Grill.

“I know I have a pretty good following in Castlegar,” said Nicole. “I really appreciate the support of my home town.”
