In January 2015, Lisa released her first music video for her debut original single “Silly Boys Trucks Are For Girls”. This original song was the #1 downloaded song on Canadian Radio the day it was released in 2014, and Lisa’s first Radio release single that she personally wrote (She had 6 previous radio releases with her former band, BULLRUSH that had all seen success on the Canadian Media Base Charts). The video was filmed in Saskatoon by Five Stones Films, a Saskatchewan film company. She also had a Canada wide promotion for real Canadian girls to send her pictures of themselves with their trucks to be featured in her video. The video was showcased on all Lisa’s social media and to date has received thousands of views.
She released her 2nd original song to Canadian Country radio “Test Drive” in March 2015. Test Drive was the #5 top downloaded song on Canadian Country radio on the day of release nationwide. Test Drive was also released on iTunes. She is very happy and grateful for all the support of these first couple songs she has wrote and released to Canadian Radio.
