Our Lady Peace

Formed in 1992 by frontman Raine Maida and guitarist Mike Turner, Our Lady Peace (OLP) quickly became a Canadian music powerhouse withthe release of 1994's Naveed. Following in the footsteps of grunge, OLP immediately earned comparisons to Stone Temple Pilots and even LedZeppelin, due to their angst and raw sound.

Led by Maida’s unique vocals, almost in the same vein of Billy Corgan, OLP’s sophomore effort, Clumsy, debuted in 1997 and went on to reachplatinum status in the U.S. Singles such as “Clumsy” and “Superman’s Dead” helped lift the band into the mainstre ...read more

Formed in 1992 by frontman Raine Maida and guitarist Mike Turner, Our Lady Peace (OLP) quickly became a Canadian music powerhouse withthe release of 1994's Naveed. Following in the footsteps of grunge, OLP immediately earned comparisons to Stone Temple Pilots and even LedZeppelin, due to their angst and raw sound.

Led by Maida’s unique vocals, almost in the same vein of Billy Corgan, OLP’s sophomore effort, Clumsy, debuted in 1997 and went on to reachplatinum status in the U.S. Singles such as “Clumsy” and “Superman’s Dead” helped lift the band into the mainstream in the States with amore alternative sound. Also with Clumsy came a change at bass, with Duncan Coutts (who was intended to be the band’s first bassist)replacing Chris Eacrett.

In 1999, Our Lady Peace released Happiness… Is Not A Fish You Can Catch, more of a classic rocker than their first two albums. PerhapsOLP’s most critically acclaimed album, Spiritual Machines, came in 2000. Often called "a poor man’s OK Computer," Spiritual Machines was aconcept album loosely based on author Ray Kurzweil’s book, "The Age of Spiritual Machines." As acclaimed as the album may have been, itssales were the worst the band had experienced to that point, and OLP made two major changes.

Before their 2002 comeback album, Gravity, founding member Turner left due to creative differences and was replaced by Steve Mazur. Alsoout was longtime producer Arnold Lanni, and in was Bob Rock. With these two moves came a major change in sound, as OLP turned moreradio-friendly, off the success of their biggest hit, “Somewhere Out There.” Most notably, Maida’s falsetto was virtually nowhere to be seen onGravity, as opposed to the previous four albums, where it was a staple. The album would go gold in the US, and OLP would continue workingwith Bob Rock for their 2005 album, Healthy in Paranoid Times. « hide
