Steven Page Trio (formerly of Barenaked Ladies) - 11/5/19
at City Winery Philadelphia
For twenty years, Steven Page was the lead singer and songwriter with Barenaked Ladies, the Toronto-based band he formed in 1988 with Ed Robertson. Known for his dynamic, physically exuberant performances, his powerful tenor, quick wit, and an arsenal of songs that span the gamut between humor and pathos, Steven and the band toured the world, selling out venues ranging from Madison Square Garden to the Royal Albert Hall; sold nearly 15 million albums and won numerous Juno awards as well as two Grammy nominations, and two Gemini awards for their work on Canadian television. He left the band in 2008 to pursue a solo and theatrical career.
On October 19, 2010, Steven released his first proper solo album, “Page One”. Previous solo efforts include “A Singer Must Die” (2010), an album of songs recorded with the Art of Time Ensemble, made up of classical and jazz players and an album written and produced with Stephen Duffy, called “The Vanity Project” in 2005. He has also composed music for Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,”(2005) “Coriolanus,”(2006) and Ben Jonson’s “Bartholmew Fair” (2009) for Canada’s Stratford Shakespeare Festival. In 2007, he hosted his own national radio documentary series, “All The Rage” on Canada’s CBC Radio One.
