Listening to Glenn Sutter (‘sue-ter’), either solo or with his band Rivertime, is like catching up with an old friend. After getting bogged down with the stress and complexities of daily life, you suddenly feel a sense of contentment and are reminded of what’s truly important. With his uplifting brand of folk-rock, Sutter’s honest, smart, and emotional songs have been catching the attention of music lovers across Saskatchewan and beyond for almost a decade.
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 - a song about global issues called Weight of the World - brought national exposure when it became the Saskatchewan track on David Suzuki's Playlist for the Planet (CBC Radio3). This led to a 2010 live collaboration with Brett Dolter (B.D. Willoughby) called Seeds, and a 2011 solo release called Sweet Happiness, again produced by Taylor. Sutter has spent the last few years playing local shows, touring, and writing new songs. The result is a stunning third solo album. Released in 2015, Let the Dog Run is a folk-rock gem chock full of hope, optimism, and honesty, produced by Mark Schmidt.
