With 5 albums to his credit, Regina folk-rocker Glenn Sutter (sue-ter) is known for his honest, intelligent songs about nature, love, and the human condition. Whether he’s playing solo or with his band Rivertime, his songs touch on shared joys and truths, until it feels like you’re catching up with an old friend. Informed by his background in science - he has a Phd in Biology - and a program he runs called Songs for Nature, he often writes about the storms that rumble through life, but he also shows us the sunrise and what it means to be resilient.
A lifelong, classically-trained musician, Sutter released his debut CD All You Need in 2008, produced by WCMA-winner David j Taylor. One of the tracks, Weight of the World, was selected as the Saskatchewan track on David Suzuki's Playlist for the Planet (CBC Radio3). Sutter followed this with Seeds, a 2010 live collaboration with Brett Dolter (Library Voices, B.D. Willoughby), a 2011 solo release called Sweet Happiness, also produced by Taylor, and a 2015 studio album called Let the Dog Run, produced by Mark Schmidt. His latest album, co-produced with Orion Paradis and released in 2019, is a collection of inspired folk-rock gems called In Rivertime.
