Attawapiskat-based songwriter draws on Cree culture for inspiration
The Canadian Indigenous music scene has witnessed a significant transformation from the peaceful folk melodies of the sixties to the powerful expressions of contemporary Indigenous artists across various genres in 2023.
And smack dead centre in this transformation is roots-rocker Adrian Sutherland, an Attawapiskat-based singer-songwriter who for my money provides a very interesting window into the evolution of this transformation by sharing his own personal stories and cultural experiences.
Adrian’s second album “Precious Diamonds” is set for release March 15, 2024.
The first single from that album, “Notawe” (Father) — pronounced Noh-TUH-wee — just recently reached number one on the Indigenous Canadian music charts.
