Midnight Shine

Posted by Shane Macaulay on 2017/03/22


Midnight Shine’s new single Sister Love is an upbeat ballad that’s sure to touch your soul. It holds special meaning for Midnight Shine’s frontman Adrian Sutherland: “It’s about trying to free yourself from the burdens and struggles we sometimes have to carry. Some of us get stuck in a hard place, and when we do, it would be nice to go back to those days when life was more simple. In our thoughts we can go there, and be in that good place again, even just for a brief moment. That’s what the song means to me.” Also special to Adrian is the fact he co-wrote Sister Love with his own sister Iris: “The idea was inspired by a poem my sister wrote. We made some changes to the lyrics to make it fit into a song structure, I came up with the melody, and we put it all together. That’s how Sister Love came to be.” 


Not many bands play their very first show opening for legendary Canadian rockers like Trooper. Then again, not many bands are quite like Midnight Shine. The Northern Ontario foursome is turning heads with a sound that seamlessly mixes roots, classic and modern rock. Anchored by the melodic vocals and eloquent lyrics of singer/songwriter Adrian Sutherland from Attawapiskat, their music is not only radio-friendly, but also explores Cree culture, tradition and life in the North with depth and meaning. They’re a ‘must-hear’ band you’ll take a real shine to. “One foot in the past, one in the here and now…”
