Indigenizing the music industry
By Sara Aldred, Calgary Journal
On Cluster Stars, Sandra Sutter’s debut album, she explores her Indigenous heritage by telling the stories of others, and hopes the record will inspire Indigenous youth to pursue their own dreams as well.
As a Métis musician, Sutter performs songs related to past and current Indigenous issues to better understand her roots.
“I want to honour where I come from, that's where I feel connected,” says Sutter.
Adopted into a non-Indigenous family as a baby, Sutter has always felt different than her siblings.
