About Steven Page & Art of Time Ensemble
Steven Page, a founder and former lead of the iconic band Barenaked Ladies, joins Toronto’s highly inventive Art of Time Ensemble in an evening of seminal songs by Randy Newman, Radiohead, Elvis Costello, Barenaked Ladies, Leonard Cohen, Page himself, and others. These gems are reimagined and reinvented by some of the greatest minds in classical, pop, and jazz, and delivered by a defining voice in contemporary rock. SONGBOOK is chamber music for the modern era.
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. From 1992 to 2009, Page shared lead vocal duties with Robertson in the Barenaked Ladies. Page also appeared on the band’s 2008 children’s pop album Snacktime!
After parting ways with the band in 2009, 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. Following that, he released A Different Sort of Solitude in 2012.
