The album ‘We All Get Lighter’ coming on March 26, 2013.


I started a band named in 1992 named Our Lady Peace.
Name taken from a Mark Van Doren World War 2 poem.
We signed to Columbia Records, sold millions, did all the late night talk shows and shared the stage with everyone from The Ramones to Willie Nelson to The Deftones and Neil Young.
I enjoy producing music. The stuff I’m most proud of you’ve probably never heard of. Men Women and Children, People in Planes. Billy the Kid, Dearly Beloved.
I am a singer.
I am a songwriter.
I am not an entertainer, although I can be entertaining. Alcohol.
I never knew how much I truly loved music until I bought The Unforgettable Fire.
I write and record music because it is the evidence of life.
I have yet to wrap my head around the distinction between pretentious and earnest.
I’m either hopelessly misunderstood or an idiot.
I am a Monday morning activist.
I’ve filmed Documentaries in Iraq and Darfur and work closely with various charities.
I drive a hybrid vehicle, shop with cloth grocery bags, buy mostly organic local foods but yet feel as though I’m living a cliché.
I dislike Yoga.
Love Bruce Lee and the UFC.
I know some real activists.
They humble me.
I feel as though I am a witness and the armed robbery is life happening right before my very eyes.
I don’t want to be the guy in the 7-11 hiding behind the candy bar aisle.
