Steven Page

A singer/songwriter with a warm tenor croon, vocalist Steven Page is best known as a founding member of the Canadian pop/rock group the Barenaked Ladies. Born in Ontario, Page took piano lessons as a child and sang in a youth choir. By his teens, he had struck up a songwriting partnership with schoolmate Ed Robertson that eventually led to the formation of adult alternative band the Barenaked Ladies. From 1992 to 2009, Page shared lead vocal duties with Robertson in the Barenaked Ladies, and wrote or co-wrote many songs on such albums as 1992's Gordon, 1996's Rock Spectacle, 1998's Stunt, 2000's Maroon, 2003's Everything to Everyone, and 2007's Barenaked Ladies Are Men. Page also appeared on the band's 2008 children's pop album Snacktime!, though also that same year, Page's much publicized arrest for cocaine possession led to the Barenaked Ladies canceling several tour dates. Although the charges were later reduced to misdemeanors, Page announced he was leaving the group in 2009. After parting ways with the band, Page kept himself busy with several projects, including writing and performing the music for the stage production Bartholomew Fair: A Comedy in the New World, which premiered at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in the summer of 2009. In 2010, Page released two albums: the covers album A Singer Must Die and the full-length original studio effort Page One.
