Music In This Episode:
Artist: Midnight Shine
Track: “I Need Angels”
They came together by chance. They stayed together for a shot. When Adrian Sutherland from Attawapiskat was offered an opening spot for Trooper in Timmins, he reeled in some Northern Ontario musicians to form temporary band Midnight Shine. Their intention was to make the most of this one-off performance. Eight years, six radio singles, three albums, and 200+ media stories later… you could say they have. In addition to making contemporary music, Sutherland – who is fluent in Mushkegowuk Cree, his native language – is a traditional knowledge keeper of his people, sings pow wow, participates in spring and fall harvests, and is a genuine example of someone who lives authentically. He is a father, grandfather, hard-working husband, and cultural leader, proud of who he is, and his home in the North. He is an inspiration to people all over the James Bay, and a true role model who brings hope to people in places where they sometimes have a hard time finding hope.
