Steven Page

Iconic Musician

Steven Page is a natural in front of a crowd. Having shot to international fame as the co-founder of The Barenaked Ladies, Page now boasts an impressive solo career, where he continues to showcase his creative genius. A witty, endearing, and searingly honest speaker, Page continues to earn his rightful place in our national conversation.

Page spent over two decades with The Barenaked Ladies, writing and co-writing hit songs such as “The Old Apartment,” “If I Had $1000000,” and “Brian Wilson,” among dozens of others. Along the way, the band earned accolades from all over the world, sold millions of albums, received two Billboard Awards, and six Juno Awards.  In 2018, the band, along with Page, were Inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the JUNO Awards Hall of Fame.

As an independent artist, Page has released three solo albums, The Vanity Project, Page One, and Heal Thyself Pt. 1: Instinct.

Page has also collaborated on two albums and has tour with Toronto’s eclectic Art of Time Ensemble; has written six theatrical scores for the Stratford Festival; and is currently working on a musical with Governor General’s Award winner playwright Daniel McIvor.

In addition, Page has also spoken at TEDx Toronto, and traveled North America as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater.


Promoting Mental Health Everywhere

Steven Page speaks passionately on a twofold approach to promoting mental health as a society: increasing awareness and decreasing stigma.

“We sustain this stigma ourselves,” he says. By not talking about our mental health issues, and thinking them a source of shame, we dissuade people from reaching out and seeking help.

“Sadness, grief, those are all things we all deal with,” Page says. “The healthy brain processes it and learns to cope with it and overcome it. Sometimes the sick brain gets stuck in it.”

In his compelling talk, Page reminds us that anyone (even our favourite musicians) can suffer from mental illness, and that everyone has a role to play in ending the stigma.

An intelligent, honest and witty speaker, Page also performs during his presentation, treating the audience to songs he has written throughout his career that speak to the topic.
