A professional researcher with a PhD in Biology, Sutter works at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, where he is Curator of Human Ecology. He studies and teaches about issues ranging from climate change and prairie conservation, to the role of creativity in sustainability. Current projects include the development of several

EcoMuseums across Saskatchewan, and actively leading Songs4Nature. Sutter believes that creative pursuits can help people live more sustainably and feel more connected to nature. He says, “I feel a strong sense of freedom and humility when I spend time outdoors. I love watching and thinking about the things I see, and there’s a sense of peace, beauty and wonder that offers a welcome alternative to stress and worry.”


Pulled from a stack of songs that were written over the last three years, Sutter’s newest album “In Rivertime” has eight original folk-rock tunes recorded at SoulSound Recording Studio with producer Orion Paradis (The Dead South, Megan Nash, Library Voices).

The title of the album has two meanings: it refers both to the name of Sutter’s band and also to that wonderful sense of feeling refreshed and renewed when he gets to spend time near water. Sutter’s musical inspirations include John Lennon, Neil Young, Greg Keelor, and Sheryl Crow.

Based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Glenn Sutter frequently writes about nature, environmental issues, and the human condition. His love and appreciation of nature stems from his childhood growing up in the ‘70s in Souris, Manitoba, where he spent much of his time outdoors hanging around the banks of the Souris River. 

A lifelong musician from a musical family, Sutter first started tinkering with the piano at age four. Classically trained through Brandon University, he would go on to spend several years performing in blues bands and playing solo folk shows before taking a hiatus to focus on his career and raise a family. Sutter received his Bachelor’s and Masters of Science degrees from the University of Manitoba, and a PhD from the University of Regina.
