My name is Kerri Ough (pronounced “oh”.) I grew up outside Port Hope, Ontario with my folks and three sisters. I lived there until I attended university in London, ON. For a decade I lived in Toronto, ON and loved every minute of it. There, I met my husband, formed my band, and lived in my first apartment alone. In 2013, I moved to St. John’s, Newfoundland and bought my first house. I love this new home city and I spend any free time exploring Newfoundland. I travel for business and for pleasure and take photos everywhere I go. I am 1/3 of the band The Good Lovelies. I love my bandmates like they are my siblings. We travel the world together. It is my dream job.
