Sarah Noni

Sarah Noni is a seasoned songwriter and multi-genre singer who has gathered a unique and set of tools from over 10 years in the Canadian music industry. She started out her career in 2004 with her debut release on Harry Manx’s west coast record label “Dogmycatrecords”.

On the road constantly during the year after this release, she put out her second record on the same label, with producer and good friend Corwin Fox, two years later. This album. “Daybreak mourning” earned her a nomination for “best songwriter” from the Canadian folk music awards in 2006.

The following year, she received a 2nd nomination for the same album from the Canadian folk music awards for “best solo artist”, and won the award this time. Shortly after this, Sarah decided to move her life to Toronto, parted with the label and quickly began recording her 3rd album with renowned bass player and producer Maury Lafoy. This album, “Mansion of Happiness” was released with great reception in 2008.

Eternally searching for new inspiration, and after a season of tours and festivals to promote the new release, Sarah accepted an invitation to showcase at Berlin’s popkomm festival. From that show she got offered a 2 month opening slot on tour with German songwriter Alin Coen. On that tour she met a company who wanted to help manage her career in Europe and so she decided to apply for a Visa and stay a while.

Although the stay in Europe was meant to be temporary, it turned into 5 years. During this time, Sarah performed many festivals, toured, and studied composition in Messina, Italy. She composed the score for a feature length film, as well as several documentaries. And she wrote many songs.

In 2014 she returned to Canada with her booking-agent-turned-husband and two-year-old daughter. Currently living on the west coast, she spent a couple years writing and performing with the pop due “Sky Parallel”, a collaboration with violinist Sara Fitzpatrick. She is currently recording and writing new material, with lots coming down the pipes in 2020, with or without lockdown.
