SARINA HAGGARTY AND CONNOR MORAND
Singer-songwriters Sarina Haggarty and Connor Morand have performed to sold out audiences at the Aeolian. Sharing the stage, sharing their stories, and sharing their individual hits, this collaboration promises to deliver pop, rock, folk and roots through the eyes of emerging musicians on the national scene. From current hits to back catalogue, Sarina and Connor will have you on your feet!
Sarina Haggarty is an inspirational figure for many. With the wide amount of support and fans, Sarina has performed in sold out venues in her hometown such as London Music Hall and Aeolian Hall. Successfully selling out London Ontario’s top venues, Sarina has released two EP’s in the past two years “Missing Pieces” in 2016 and her new EP “Compass” in 2018. Sarina’s music branches out into every genre possible. She has had encounters with artists such as Sarah Smith, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Lennon & Maisy, Kim Churchill, George Fox, Tyler Shaw, Shawn Mendes and Mark Schulman.
As 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 celebrates their 40th anniversary, a PSA was released and featured her soulful voice throughout the video.
Being involved with London Music Office, FCLMA, (Jack Richardson Music Awards – Winning Fan Favourite 2018), Western Fair, Bethany’s Hope Foundation, London Arts Council, London Celebrates Canada, Epilepsy Support SWO, LHSC, she always uses her music ability to raise money for various charities in any way possible. Sarina frequently gets interviewed on National Radio stations and has had many articles written on her journey. Radio stations such as Country 104, CFPL 980, 103.1 Fresh Fm, Fm 96.7, Jack Fm, CBC London, Easy 101 and CHYM 96.7. Starting local, she then ended up live on air with Niall Boland on Classic Hits 94-105FM in Dublin, Ireland. She has shared her journey with companies such as CTV, London Health Science Centre, CBC, CORUS and Rogers.
As an MIA graduate, Sarina recently released 2 singles produced by Moe Berg and engineered by Rob Nation called Want You so Bad and Meant to Be. Her music has gained attention from many in the music industry for her soulful songs that are beyond her years. She is looking forward to releasing her third EP in 2020, recorded in EMAC Recording Studios in London, Ontario.
In many ways, Connor Morand has broken his own barriers throughout his musical journey. Originally born in London, Ontario, Morand developed an appreciation for all musical genres very quickly. Beginning as a folk artist, he searched to find his own artistic identity while still maintaining his love of diversity.
Enter Morand’s 2017 release of ‘Everything Is Gold / Believe’, a double-single project showcasing his ability to transcend into the alternative pop realm. It was promoted with a stunning around-the-world music video for the lead singles, “Everything Is Gold”, spanning 60 locations and four continents over six months of filming. This caught the attention of multiple TV and radio networks across Canada, including MuchMusic, CBC, CTV and Global News.
While many suggest that Morand continue to ride on the success of that release, he is more interested in continual craft development, the mark of a true artist. His newest single, “94 Corolla”, is a hip-hop infused pop track that explores the idea of life’s biggest moments happening in familiar, average spaces. Its infectious melody and vibrant production make for an impressive introduction to his new era of music.
Morand continues to write and produce new music, and stands by his own unique form of artistry: uncompromising, experimental, and passionate. Create something with purpose, and people will listen.
