Our Lady Peace was formed in 1992 and had only played a dozen times or so live when they were signed to Sony Music. They soon recorded their album 'Naveed' in 1993 with producer Arnold Lanni (Frozen Ghost, Wild T. And The Spirit).

Two and a half years of touring with Bush, Elastica, and The Ramones followed at which time Robert Plant caught their single "Starseed" on the radio (a top-10 hit in both Canada and the United States) and asked the band to support them on a leg of the Plant & Page 'No Quarter Tour'.

In September 1995, following the 5 shows with the former Zeppelin stars and another round of gigs with Letters To Cleo/Sponge et al, bassist Coutts was brought into the band. Slots with Van Halen and as the personally invited opening act to Alanis Morissette where they finished up the last of their tour dates promoting 'Naveed'. After 350 shows and, according to their road manager, traveled about 230,000 miles, the album went multi-platinum in Canada and has sold 500,000 copies in North America.

The band also made various international television appearances (Conan O'Brien, The Jon Stewart Show) while sweeping the 1995 Casby Awards in all three categories.

1997's 'Clumsy' debuted on Canadian charts at #1 on the strength of the single/video "Superman's Dead". The video itself was nominated for several Muchmusic Canadian Music Video Awards.
