In case you missed it, singer Steven Page rode the rails into Kingston on Tuesday as part of a series of performances he played in VIA Rail stations across Ontario.
Page released Heal Thyself Pt. 1: Instinct on March 11 – an album described as a blend of modern pop melodies with infectious arrangements and deep lyrics.
Heal Thyself Pt. 1: Instinct features 12 new tracks including the lead single, Surprise Surprise. The song was recorded between Vancouver and Toronto and produced by Page, Craig Northey and his band, the Odds, who performed on most of the tracks.
Other songs were recorded with Page’s live band, The Original Six, with band mates Bryden, Jay and Jesse Baird, along with Kevin Fox and Karen Graves on strings.
Over his 25 year career, Page has become one of Canada’s most recognized artists, beginning with Barenaked Ladies – a group known wordwide for tunes like “If I had a Million Dollars” and the theme song for TV’s “Big Bang Theory” – to his solo career as a talented songwriter scoring plays, and as an adventurous TV host.
