TORONTO, ON - FEBRUARY 12, 2019 - The day finally came. Following a decade of revisiting, reflecting, and reworking, the nine tracks comprising One Day Soon, the debut solo collection from the Good Lovelies’ Kerri Ough, are ready to be shared – and she’s finally ready to share them. Due out on March 8, 2019, the new album includes lead single “How Is This Going To End”. Watch and share the new video here. This March, Ough, along with multi-instrumentalist  Ben Whiteley (The Weather Station, Julia Jacklin, Basia Bulat), will join Royal Wood in support of his East Coast tour. Ough will celebrate the release of the album at Toronto’s Burdock on March 21st with many special guests.

The last couple of years have been pretty good to her, after all. She’s a successful musician, accomplished artist, talented writer, and gifted photographer. She knows who she is and, more importantly, who she wants to be. But that’s a far cry from where she was when songs from One Day Soon first started flowing from her. “They really bring me back to a different time and place,” Ough admits. “I had just ended one relationship and started considering a new one. I was working a day job and hitting open mics by night, never really sleeping and really just trying to figure out life.”

Ough co-produced the album with producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist Adam King(Ria Mae, Good Lovelies, Jill Barber).  Anchored by an airy, intimate take on pop-tinged folk, the album is ripe with compelling foils – sometimes somber, sometimes sweet; sometimes wistful, others whimsical. The subject matter is inherently innocent while the arrangements and production boast the sheen of experience. It’s a breakup record at its core, but one stitched together with threads of hope.

The title track opens the album and perfectly sets the stage for what’s to come with its simple-but-sticky melody and a playful energy that belies the weightier themes. Ough’s fellow Lovelies, Caroline Brooks and Sue Passmore, lend their voices to “How Is This Going to End,” which benefits from their established synergy without distracting from the album’s sonic character. Other contributors and collaborators include Paul Matthew (bass), Christine Bougie (guitars and lap steel), Karen Ellis (vocals), and Drew Jurecka (strings).

One Day Soon represents both new and old – the closing of one chapter of her creative life and the beginning of another. The songs stem from the past, though in finally seeing the light of day, also represent a future filled with opportunity. “Ever since I was 11, I knew that I wanted to do this – to connect with people through music,” Ough enthuses. “I’ve had the opportunity to do that with the Good Lovelies for over 10 years, and now, I get to expand on that with something of my own. I know I still have lots of music in me, and I’m ready and excited to share even more of it.”
