During 2017, Lisa reached the finals of the Salute Music UK competition and the Radio Clyde Jim Diamond Award. Lisa was also named “a woman of influence” by Paisley’s Provost.
2018’s highlights included Celtic Connections, a headline gig at King Tuts and showcases at Music for Youth in both Glasgow and Newcastle, and Dougie MacLean’s Perthshire Amber festival. It was the year Lisa began to spread her wings, invited by the American Scottish Foundation to perform at New York Tartan Week, singing at the ceremony in Bryant Park and to crowds on 6th Avenue. She also spent a few weeks visiting London in the summer, performing in the Gigs10 Busking competition and making it to the finals.
Lisa’s latest single was released in November 2018 and Celtic FM Presenter Ross MacFadyen gave it the following review:
"Over the past couple of years, Lisa Kowalski's performance and writing skills have developed to a level that her new song, "I Do" would not be out of place on a LeAnn Rimes album. I really hope mainstream radio takes notice."
