|Our Lady Peace Frontman Goes Solo|
Developed over the last year during the late evening hours in his private studio, the album delivers a deeply personal picture of the man as an artist in the 21st century.

His talented wife Chantal Kreviazuk plays piano and lends her unique vocals to several of the albums tracks. Victor Indrizzo (Beck, Gnarls Barkley) started the drum sessions with Raine back in the summer of 2006.
