Lisa Nicole requests you “Wait On Me”
Canadian country artist Lisa Nicole is proud to introduce her new single “Wait On Me”. “Wait On Me”, written in Nashville by Lisa, Jason Thomas, and Dave Pahanish, is the debut single from her 2020 album “Where The Wild Hearts Beat” and also marks her first collaboration with CCMA award-winning producer Jeff Johnson. This is also the first single for the Canadian singer, originally from Castlegar, British Columbia, since she moved to Nashville for the spring and summer of 2018 to add fuel to her creative fire.
Lisa says, “There are moments in life that test the balance of our commitment between professional goals and personal relationships. While there is great pressure to choose one over the other, I don’t believe it has to be that way. Your heart can want and have both. “Wait On Me” is about making the bold choice to follow through on your dreams, but also build a future with someone you love anywhere and anytime, regardless of obstacles”. The move to Music City connected Lisa Nicole and her longtime guitar player Thomas with Nashville hitmaker Pahanish (Keith Urban, Toby Keith).
Her long-distance relationship with a Canadian partner back home proved to be the catalyst that inspired the trio to pen “Wait On Me”. The choice to uproot from the Kootenays to Nashville was greatly inspired by a transformative and serendipitous 2017 moment for Lisa Nicole, who was the winner of the 2015 Music BC/BC Country Music Association Artist Development Project, when she visited Nashville for a songwriting trip. Encouraged to see a pop-up concert by Keith Urban, she arrived with her 2016 EP in hand, only to end up on stage by night’s end to sing an impromptu duet of “We Were Us” with the superstar.
Following her extended stay in Nashville in 2018, Lisa Nicole returned to Canada with heaps of inspiration and a wealth of new material. Since then, she has joined forces with producer Jeff Johnson (Meghan Patrick, Chris Buck Band) to record her first full-length album, Where the Wild Hearts Beat – boasting a commercial country sound with an infusion of rock and pop. “Wait On Me” is the first gift from this collaboration.
