Listening to Glenn Sutter (‘sue-ter’), either solo or with his band Rivertime, is like catching up with an old friend. As he ties in on piano or guitar, you feel a sense of contentment and are reminded about what’s truly important. Since his 2008 debut, Sutter’s honest, smart, and emotional songs have been hitting home and attracting the attention of music lovers across Canada and beyond.
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, called Weight of the World, was selected as the Saskatchewan track on David Suzuki's Playlist for the Planet (CBC Radio3). Sutter followed this with a 2010 live collaboration with Brett Dolter (B.D. Willoughby) called Seeds, and a 2011 solo release called Sweet Happiness, again produced by Taylor. For the last few years, Sutter has been playing local shows and touring for his 2015 studio album Let the Dog Run, a folk-rock gem chock full of hope, optimism, and honesty, produced by Mark Schmidt.
