- In-person event
Born and raised in Canada’s Far North, Adrian Sutherland is a roots-rocker-with-heart from Attawapiskat First Nation. His melding of rock, roots, folk and blues draws inspiration from his life, the land, and his Cree culture, with songs that ripple far beyond stages. There’s no one quite like him, or music quite like his.
“Precious Diamonds,” Adrian’s second solo album, was produced in Nashville by Colin Linden, and mastered in New Jersey by Greg Calbi (release date 03.15.24). His debut solo album, “When The Magic Hits”, earned nominations at the 2022 JUNO Awards and 2023 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Adrian is a respected cultural leader and traditional knowledge keeper who is fluent in Omushkegowuk Cree. As one of the only professional musicians still living in his isolated First Nation and traditional territory… Adrian carries an authentic and insightful first-hand perspective on many issues, like contaminated water, food insecurity, and mental health.
At this time of reconciliation, Adrian is hopeful for Canadians to walk together in love and respect.
