With roots coming from the Saugeen First Nation Reserve in Ontario, Inspirational Artist Stirling John is proud to call Alberta home. Residing just outside of Edmonton, Stirling John takes pride in working alongside the first nation communities across Canada, with a strong passion for helping Indigenous youth. In 2022, Stirling John invested much of his time and efforts into recording a new project digging deep into his soul and drawing on what he is most passionate about, other people and giving back to the community. In doing so, Stirling John found himself. The title track, “Where I’m Meant To Be” from the new album, is a bit of an awakening, a realization of what means the most.

Music has always been close to Stirling’s heart. However, after growing up singing in church with his mother and siblings, music began to take a backseat to life. After high school, Stirling John chose to become an RCMP officer and start a family. Over the next few years, Stirling’s path took several turns, eventually leading him back to a place of comfort and passion…Inspirational Country Music. Stirling John is committed to putting light on the topics that matter most to him, real-life people and events.

Drawing inspiration from artists such as Paul Brandt, The Newsboys, Chris Tomlin and Rascal Flatts, Stirling John’s introspective music carries his listeners down a path of emotion. Stirling spends time volunteering and helping develop music programs for Indigenous Students at underfunded schools. Through his passion for helping others, Stirling has the opportunity to become the first Ambassador to the Veterans Association Food Bank in Alberta. Stirling is now a four-time Country Music Alberta Nominee and, in November 2022, became the recipient of one of the Okimaw 7 teaching awards for honesty.
