Canadian country artist Lisa Nicole is back with a new video for her track “Wait On Me”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Wait on Me” – written in Nashville by Nicole, Jason Thomas, and Dave Pahanish – is the debut single from her upcoming album, Where the Wild Hearts Beat, and her first collaboration with CCMA award-winning producer Jeff Johnson.
Nicole 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.”
“Wait on Me” was written in Nashville by the Castlegar, British Columbia singer when she moved to Nashville for the spring and summer of 2018 to add fuel to her creative fire.
The move connected Nicole 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 Nicole 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 Urban.
Following her extended stay in Nashville in 2018, 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.
As she puts the finishing touches on her album, Nicole is staying busy through the summer with her ongoing podcast, “Wild Hearts”, and her upcoming summer single, “Do Your Thang”.
