Lisa Brokop is looking forward to playing the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Wednesday night.

She’s bringing her country ballads and stunning voice to share with the fortunate people of Chilliwack.

“I’m a proud Canadian, no doubt about that, and I always love coming back to the Fraser Valley. Of course I get to see my family and the crowd is always full of familiar faces. I never know what blast from the past is gonna appear when I’m close to home, and I can’t wait to play at the HUB International Theatre for the first time!”

Brokop’s journey has taken her from Surrey, to down south in Nashville, Tennessee, but on September 3, this beloved Canadian daughter of country music is bringing back her soothing voice and rustic charm to the Lower Mainland.

This trip will be an exciting opportunity to catch one of Canada’s most enduring country singers on her home turf as she celebrates an incredible 20 years in the biz.

Brokop’s relationship with country has been one of enduring love. From performing on stage with her family at seven, to landing her first record deal at 19, and releasing hit albums ‘Every Little Girls Dream’, and self-titled ‘Lisa Brokop’, the singer has lived and breathed the country music genre.

Brokop has earned her reputation as a fantastic performer, talented song-writer, and a charismatic personality who loves to connect with her fans through the honesty of her music.

It’s part of what has led to such a long and rewarding career.

“Country fans are the most loyal fans in the world!” she says. “I’m celebrating 20 years of touring throughout Canada/US this year, and really much of that celebration is directed towards the fans. Year after year they keep coming back and supporting me, and I’m so grateful for that! If it weren’t for the fans I wouldn’t be celebrating this milestone!”

Of course this isn’t the first milestone Brokop has made over that amazing 20 year career. From the Canadian-Certified Gold Award for ‘Every Little Girl’s Dream’, to her Top 10 hit ‘Better off Broken’, and her regular recognition by the Canadian Country Music Awards, including two nods for Best Independent Song of the year and three consecutive trophies for Independent Artist of the Year, Brokop has made her mark on the country music scene time and time again. Not ready to sit back and admire her achievements just yet though, Brokop is marking her 20 year anniversary with her brand new eighth album, and the powerhouse debut single ‘Let it Burn’ that is set to sweep Canadian country airwaves this fall! The inspiration for her music has changed a little since she was a 19 year old, but those simple country-girl impulses still fills Brokop’s sound and creativity, as she reveals.

“I’m inspired by many things, but it seems the things that really fill me up these days are the simple ones. My little girl is turning five, and seeing the world through her eyes is pretty cool! Her imagination is so colourful, and very inspiring.”

So kick back, Chilliwack, and be charmed by the wonderful music of Lisa Brokop.
