They came together by chance. They stayed together for a shot. When Adrian Sutherland from the isolated community of Attawapiskat was offered opening spot for Trooper in Timmins, he reeled in three other musicians from his remote James Bay region to form Midnight Shine.
Their intention was to make the most of a one-off performance. Eight years, three albums, six Top 10 IMC radio singles, and 200+ media stories later… you could say they have. Turning heads with a sound that seamlessly mixes roots, classic and modern rock with touches of Mushkegowuk Cree, Midnight Shine has been lighting up the music world with songs that share a glimpse of life in Canada’s far North. They continue to push musical boundaries and boldly take new strides, while staying true to who they are and where they come from. A must-hear band you’ll take a real shine to.
