Steven Page’s distinctive and powerful voice is among the most instantly recognizable in popular music. A member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with former bandmates, Barenaked Ladies, Steven Page reunited with the band he co-founded for their induction at the 2018 JUNO Awards – a night capped off by an exhilarating two song performance.
Steven’s fifth solo album, DISCIPLINE: HEAL THYSELF, PT. II, was released in 2018, followed by tours of the UK, Ireland and the U.S. with bandmates Craig Northey (Odds) and Kevin Fox. In 2019, Steven toured Canada from coast to coast starting in the east with a successful run alongside Symphony New Brunswick. In May, the trio hit the road again, moving west, performing in venues from Quebec to British Colombia. The Discipline Tour concluded in autumn 2019, with an extensive tour of the U.S. Northwest, Southeast, Northeast and Texas from September through November. The Steven Page Trio – Live in Concert DVD was filmed during the Cross-Canada tour and has been airing on American Public Television stations across the U.S.
Since becoming a solo artist, Steven Page has carved out a diversified niche for himself that extends beyond recording and performing through an extensive array of projects in music, film, theatre and television. He has composed six Stratford Festival scores, has collaborated and toured North America with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time Ensemble and performs with his rock star pals as a member of the Trans-Canada Highwaymen. Steven journeyed across Canada and the U.S. as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater, became a Chopped Canada Champion and appeared as a judge on Iron Chef Canada in their 2019/20 season.
2020 was set to be one of the most exciting years yet. The Stratford Festival’s production of Here’s What It Takes, a musical co-written by Steven Page and playwright Daniel MacIvor, was set to debut in June. Classical crossover concerts across Canada, including two nights with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in May, were postponed due to Covid-19. Steven was able to rebound, despite the uncertainty, by live streaming weekly ticketed shows via Zoom. Since late April, Steven’s LIVE FROM HOME performances have consistently sold out and have not only allowed him to connect with his audience but have also created a community where fans can connect with each as well.
Still the dynamic stage presence he’s always been, Steven Page is the consummate entertainer, performing music from both his solo career and his BNL years.

“The artist has to ‘keep pushing through’, and it isn’t easy, but Mr. Page has the talent to make that effort worthwhile.”
“[Steven Page] sings with heartfelt verve in this highly entertaining show”
“Song after song, Page demonstrates superb songwriting and amazing pop sensibilities, supported by strong arrangements and production. This album is for everyone: BNL fans, Steven Page fans, pop music fans. Music for the masses delivered by that unmistakable tenor voice. You need to hear this.”
“With breathtaking range and remarkable cohesion, Steven Page nudges the genre and the rest of us in this way to be more active, ambitious, and engaged. Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II is a masterwork.”
“It would take a game-changing, incredibly strong record to help Page shake the baggage of his former band. But this record [Discipline] is it.”
