Overcoming adversity has been part of Sarina Haggarty’s day-to-day for much of her life. So when a world-wide pandemic forced musicians to cancel gigs and stay home, Sarina did what she’s always done. She got down to work and collaborated with inspiration artists and producers. And rehearse. Then rewrite. Rehearse some more. Repeat.
No venue? No problem. Since the spring of 2020, Sarina has performed weekly to virtual audiences.
Familiar favourites and her latest singles were a welcome respite to music-loving fans around the world.
Between lockdowns, Sarina performed every live concert she could, and was especially happy to open for several CCMA events in London, Ontario.
As soon as she could, Sarina headed into the studio again where she’s recorded her latest songs with producers Moe Berg, Dan Brodbeck, Dylan Emmet, Alex Emrich, and Nick Fetchison.
Winner of the Slaight Communications Inc. MIA Artist Development Award and the FCLMA’s Fan Favourite, Sarina Haggarty works diligently at her craft and performance every single day. She grew up performing, so when she sang alongside Shawn Mendes and Make-A-Wish for 22,000 fans, it felt like coming home.
Sarina has shared the stage with Tim Hicks and Tyler Shaw, and she regularly uses her music to serve others in the community with her melodic stylings, thoughtfully crafted songs, and her wicked sense of humour.
Make-A-Wish, Bethany’s Hope, and London Health Sciences Centre are just a few of the charities Sarina supports with her music. A graduate of Fanshawe College’s Music Industry Arts Program, and with 2 EPs released, Sarina’s cross-over sound appeals to pop, indie, alternative and country audiences alike.
Her next album is scheduled for release in Summer 2022, and Sarina is more than ready to entertain live and in-person.
Sarina was a Make-A-Wish patient, and had the opportunity to perform an Original song at Quicken Loans Arena during a sold out Shawn Mendes concert in Cleveland. Her wish became an aspiration worldwide and as Make-A-Wish celebrated their 40th anniversary, a PSA was released with John Cena speaking and featured her angelic voice throughout the video recorded in LA.
Her music has gained attention from many in the music industry for her soulful songs that are beyond her years.
