Former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page is headed to the U.K. for the first time in ten years.
With one of pop’s most instantly recognisable voices Steven Page is famous for fronting the Barenaked Ladies. Their track ‘One Week‘ propelled them into the spotlight back in 1998.
But since leaving the band in 2009 Page has diverted his musical talents in other directions. He’s composed six theatrical scores for Canada’s Stratford Festival, including 2016’s production of Macbeth, collaborated and toured with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time ensemble and journeyed across North America as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater
Continuing to write his own material Page returns to U.K. shores with tour dates throughout October and November. The tour will find Steven return in trio form with long-term musical mates Craig Northey and Kevin Fox on guitar and cello.
His most recent release ‘Heal Thyself, Pt 1: Instinct‘ arrived in 2016, this video is taken from that album.
Describing his musical inspiration Page says: “I’ve always had a sense of wonder about that era of Sixties and Seventies music, and probably always will,”. “I remember getting Paul McCartney’s second solo album for my 11th birthday, and there’s a picture in it of him standing in front of his 16-track machine in his home studio, with his kid tugging at him. I think from the moment I saw that photo, while listening to this strange album he’d made at his house, I decided I wanted to do the same thing.”
The tour begins on October 22nd in Leeds with some dates already selling out. For more information visit the UK tour micro site.
