Mike Haggith drops into Sev’s Cellar for another chat, a year or so after his visit to promote his sterling album If Ever Comes The Day. This time he’s there to launch his sparkling new record, Bridges.
Mike Haggith is an original alternative/indie recording and performing artist, residing in the small northern mining town of Thompson, Manitoba. In the past, Haggith has called the Ontario cities of Sault Ste Marie and Windsor home. At thirty years old, Haggith is best-known for his distinctive musical delivery, complimented by heavily introspective lyrics. Writing largely from personal experience as a therapeutic outlet, his discography has traced the ups and downs of relationships, life events, and the hardships of living remotely. An avid writer, producer, and advocate for increased mental health support in Canada’s remote northern and First Nations regions, the music of Haggith and his affiliated groups has reached the radio, television, and cinema.
A classically trained musician with a penchant for the punk music. Sev has played in numerous bands, on keyboards, drums and voice. Tulpa, with John Bottomley, holds a special place and so do the rock punkers, Throbbin’ Hoods. Sneaking up on 40 years of experience in a variety of mediums, Sev Micron engineers Muzicare Productions and has produced a good number of indie artists. Songwriting is another of Sev’s many and considerable talents.
And it wouldn’t be right to not mention that Sev loves animals, dogs especially (hi Bella), and that cooking is a forte! Peace and love are big fans, too.
