Rooting from the isolated community of Attawapiskat, in the far north of Canada, Midnight Shine have not only fought for tackling issues of their communities such as contaminated water, mouldy housing, addiction, suicide, but also won the hearts amongst non-native people in Canada with seven chart topping singles and hundreds of national media stories, making the roots/rock band not only an important actor in entertainment, but also an important link between social issues of the First Nations and non-indigenous population in Canada and worldwide.

Midnight Shine with Adrian Sutherland as the front person craft a musical soundscape that gives a glimpse into their remote landscape, they continue to push musical boundaries, setting examples on uniting strengths and boldly take new strides, while staying true to who they are and where they come from.

As an introduction to Europe, Midnight Shine is entering the stage with a story to tell on September 21th at Reeperbahn Festival, in Hamburg, Germany, showcasing their authentic selves, such as their unique spin on Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold”, mixing English with Cree, the native sounds and language, and their original song “Leather skin”, a love-protest song against the oppression that is daily faced.
