Raine Maida Steps into the Solo Spotlight

Published: 2006-12-19
Like Gwen Stefani, Emily Haines and Dallas Green before him Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida is breaking off from his mega successful band to release a solo album.

He's already dipped his toes into the solo waters, opening for his wife Chantal Kreviazuk on her current tour all by himself. He's also released an EP Love Hope Hero that he's been selling on the road and is also available on iTunes. You can hear a couple of the tunes "Earthless" and "Careful What You Wish For" on his official Myspace page.

The tunes have a more mellow sound than the rocking tunes Our Lady Peace usually doles out and have a more poetic, spoken word feel to them. According to Billboard, Maida is set to release a full length record at some point this spring.

He will continue to open for his wife on her upcoming Canadian tour in the new year.

Maida's band, Our Lady Peace, just released a record of their greatest hits, A Decade, in November.
