The Swedish-Canadian singer/songwriter, who calls Whitehorse home, performs at Mansfield’s Cabaret on Nov. 2.

MacDougall has won two Western Canadian Music Awards for Roots Solo Recording of the Year. On the day she plays Oshawa, MacDougall’s fourth studio album, All The Hours I Have Left To Tell You Anything, will be released.

“It conjures up themes of identity, death, breaking down of relationships, birth and the ghosts we carry throughout,” states a press release. “MacDougall’s writing deftly captures the urgency of life and surrendering to its immediacy. Epic while remaining intimate, lush while staying stark, and melancholy while still managing to celebrate, the record is undoubtedly influenced by MacDougall’s Swedish roots and the vast and dark beauty of the North.”

“All The Hours I Have Left To Tell You Anything builds and evolves from MacDougall’s unique sound, adding dance rhythms, atmospheric guitars and synths to augment her haunting vocals and poetic lyrics. She called on some of her favourite musical friends to join her on the record including Anna Ruddick (Bry Webb) on bass, and Loel Campbell (Wintersleep) on drums.”
