Sherri Harding, the soulful, bluesy rock star from Ottawa, Ontario, is thrilled to announce the release of her new single, “Lady Of The House” from her highly anticipated debut album, “A Million Pieces.”
A Million Pieces showcases Sherri’s extraordinary range of musical styles, featuring memorable and attention-grabbing rock tracks and soulful ballads, and the heartfelt song “Lady of the House” recently hit the airwaves and streaming platforms, beautifully captures Sherri’s deep emotional connection to her family and pays tribute to her strong female role models.
When discussing the creative process behind the album, Sherri reveals, “During the early days of the ‘A Million Pieces’ project, I had the pleasure of collaborating with Dick Cooper, renowned songwriter for The Cooper Brothers. We discussed various themes, and I shared stories about my sweet mother and paternal grandmother. Dick returned with the magnificent song ‘Lady of the House,’ and the moment I heard it, I was moved to tears. That’s when I knew we had something truly special.”
Cooper’s significant contribution to the album extends beyond his songwriting prowess. Recognizing Sherri’s immense talent, Cooper played a pivotal role in her musical journey by encouraging her to step into the spotlight. In 2016, Sherri had a breakthrough moment when she joined forces with her hometown heroes, The Cooper Brothers, to perform “The Dream Never Dies” alongside them on stage. This experience solidified her potential as a solo artist and laid the foundation for the creation of her debut album, “A Million Pieces.” Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Cooper crafted a collection of songs specifically tailored to Sherri’s unique style and heartfelt expression.
Sherri’s path to success has been paved with dedication and perseverance. Having paid her dues in the music industry, she spent years performing with various bands across numerous bars and clubs. From entertaining audiences at the Juke Joints in the Northwest Territories to captivating the Canadian Armed Forces in Bosnia, Dubai, and Italy, her unwavering commitment to her craft has earned her a well-travelled reputation. Even while juggling late-night gigs with her early-morning government job, Sherri’s passion for music has remained strong, propelling her toward this remarkable milestone in her career.
