Crazy Diamond, the beautifully insane duo that are here to rock the party while tugging at your suddenly-exposed heartstrings.

Biography

Crazy: Affected with madness, insane. Departing from proportion or moderation.
Diamond: From the ancient Greek word “adamas”, meaning invincible, one of the best-known and most sought-after gemstones.

That pretty much sums it up.

Crazy Diamond is the collaborative musical prowess of Southern Ontario Canada natives Regan Brennan and Connor Lovat-Fraser.

Connor Lovat-Fraser is the former lead vocalist for Juno nominated band “Boys Night Out” (Ferret Music USA) who, over a six-year period wrote and released five albums, toured worldwide and enjoyed frequent exposure on Much Music and MTV. Having been involved in a plethora of other musical projects, spanning over a decade of involvement in the diverse and booming Canadian music scene, Connor now lives in Hamilton, Ontario Canada where he is working not only on Crazy Diamond but producing and/or co-writing various projects ranging from hip hop to rock and roll.

Regan Brennan lives and breathes all things artistic. Over the years she’s played everything from pop to punk rock and, most recently, left audiences from Toronto to Los Angeles spellbound with her heart-wrenching-solo-acoustic-effort under the moniker “Miss Regan Brennan”. After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design she began to lay the foundations for her own high-end underwear line “Dance Party Unmentionables”.

Hailing from the deep-rooted punk rock background, Crazy Diamond takes the punk and hardcore ethos to combine simple beats, organic vocals and guitar to pump out brutally honest pop songs that speak of heartbreak, humiliation, confusion and confrontation.

"Just keep it honest," is the creed that drives Crazy Diamond, the beautifully insane duo that is here to rock the party while tugging at your suddenly exposed heartstrings.

Their debut self-titled EP, released in the autumn of 2009, was produced and engineered by Matt Davis. Matt joined the group as a full time member shortly after the EP’s release.

Lyrics

Mistakes and Misteps

Written By: Lovat-Fraser/Brennan

Keep this sandy shore. Take it, it's yours. I'll keep the floorboards. You'll pace back and forth. Your place is haunted by ghosts from the sea floor. We could be made of water. We wave goodbye as we break from mistakes that we made. We could be made of water. We wave goodbye as we break from mistakes that we made. These hands cracked and dried. My belly's empty; my pride left in low tide. All the times we tried are shattered like shells and scattered like coastlines. We could be made of water. We wave goodbye as we break from mistakes that we made. We could be made of water. We wave goodbye as we break from mistakes that we made. I'll acknowledge you, but I won't be sincere. Sincerely yours: Your sailor, my dear.

I Know

Written By: Lovat-Fraser/Brennan

I thought you had my back. You’ve always been a handful. You’ve always had your hands full. You’ve always been too careful. You’ve got work at nine in the morning. I just leave I’m not even working. A boy at work we’re talking and flirting. My morning girl’s for touching and kissing. We make plans and you're always sorry. I don’t show cause there’s nothing for me. Songs from the heart or cash for the pockets. I’ll break her heart and know that she loves me. I know. I’ve got you figured out. She’s got such pretty eyes. He’s looking for a way out. She’s always had my back. I (he) have such hot, hot hands. You’re not just a skirt, you’re a little black dress. (I know, I know, I know.) I’m tidy and sweet and your making messes. (I know, I know, I know.) I’m going to be brave, man up and behave. He’s wasting my time. I’ll make up a clean break. I know.
