Multiple Juno Award winner Chantal Kreviazuk never considered a career in music until she began writing what would become her Platinum-selling debut album during recovery from a serious motorcycle accident in 1994. Under These Rocks and Stones was released to widespread acclaim in 1997, and Chantal has since become one of Canada’s most beloved Artists. With a string of distinguished albums and singles, Chantal’s drive to expand her artistry has led her to become a highly sought-after songwriter, having penned hits for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Drake, among many others.
While her professional achievements are significant, Chantal receives the greatest amount of joy at home where she raises her three sons – Rowan, Lucca, and Sal – with her husband, Raine Maida, frontman for Our Lady Peace. For Chantal, motherhood has breathed an authenticity into her life that inspires her to achieve new levels of self-discovery.
Having demonstrated an outstanding commitment to human rights causes – being avid supporters of War Child Canada among them – Chantal and Raine received the 2014 Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award for their longstanding dedication to the world community. In December 2014 the Governor General jointly appointed Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk to the Order of Canada.
