Steven Page, the former lead singer for the band Bare Naked Ladies, will tell you that the themes explored in his latest album Page One are those of love, loss, and new beginnings. These are universally felt, and no less so for Page. Page One marks his first solo release since leaving Bare Naked Ladies, the highly-successful band he co-founded, wrote and performed with for more than 20 years.

Page One is new—yet vintage—Steven Page. For the album Page assembled a stellar crew beginning with co-writing the songs with Stephen Duffy and Craig Northey (The Odds). The album is co-produced by Page and John Fields; the two playing most instruments, along with guests Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello); Esthero; Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket); Kevin Fox; Prince’s NPG brass section, The Hornheads; Bryden, Jesse and Jay Baird (Feist); and the late Will Owsley in one of his last recordings.

Page’s first solo sailing was 2005’s The Vanity Project, co-written with Stephen Duffy. Earlier this year, he released A Singer Must Die, a collaboration with the Toronto chamber music group Art of Time Ensemble. He has also scored three plays for the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in the last five years. Over his ten-album career with Bare Naked Ladies, Steven Page has been blessed with myriad international awards and nominations while in the process selling over 12 million albums. Page One is not only his most recent work, it is the most distilled expression of Steven Page.
