Sarina Haggarty has been making music for as long as she can remember. As a young child she would regularly improvise songs while pretending to play guitar. At age four, she began learning cello on an old converted viola. From there, she branched out to piano and vocal lessons as well. At age 10, she taught herself guitar and has been refining her music ever since.
At the age of nine, Sarina suffered her first seizure on route to a performance. Following her second attack, doctors at the London Health Sciences Centre diagnosed her as having epilepsy. During the summer of 2016, Sarina underwent two invasive brain surgeries to help subside her seizures. Even while in the hospital, she was still playing music for the nurses on the floor and even had a visit from recording artists Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. She recorded a video of her performing between surgeries, which was posted to social media and has since received over 40k views. Despite the seizures, Sarina has never let that stop her from performing or making her own music.
In December 2017, she released her first album Compass, including the single “Obsessed,” to a sold out crowd at London Music Hall. Her 2015 EP Missing Pieces donated all proceeds back to brain research. She has extensive performance experience, including the Open A Legend Competition, Canada Day in Harris Park, singing the anthem for London Lightning, and opening a cocktail party for Chef Michael.
