Our Lady Peace was formed in 1992 when singer Raine Maida met guitarist Mike Turner while studying at the University of Toronto. They joined forces with bassist Chris Eacrett and drummer Jeremy Taggart to record their debut album, Naveed, in 1995.
The post-grunge band toured Canada in support of the album, opening for acts such as Bush, Elastica, the Ramones and Alanis Morissette. Naveed was a multi-platinum seller in Canada, largely due to the band's diligent touring schedule and television appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "The Jon Stewart Show." Their single, "Starseed," made it to Billboard's Modern Rock chart.
OLP's 1997 follow-up album, Clumsy, was greeted with critical raves and was certified gold in the United States less than a year after its release. Their latest, Happiness...Is Not A Fish That You Can Catch, came out in 1999.
