Mini Bio (1)
Chantal Kreviazuk is a Canadian-born singer and songwriter from Winnipeg, Manitoba who began playing piano from ear at the age of three.
It wasn't though until 1994, while finding herself in Italy, Chantal was in a motorcycle accident and began thinking it was time to take her musical talents seriously. In 1996, she was finally signed to Sony Canada and her debut album, "Under These Rocks and Stones" was released. "Surrounded", "Wayne" and "Believer", all singles off the album, climbed the music charts and put Chantal on the map for all to see.
In 1998, Chantal recorded a cover of John Denver's, "Leaving on a Jetplane" for the Armageddon movie soundtrack, which went double platinum.
With her climbing success, Chantal released her sophomore album "Colour Moving and Still" in 1999 and the lead single, "Before You", a song about her then-fiance and now-husband, Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida, peaked within the top ten on the Much Music charts. Her other single that year, "Feels Like Home" was recorded for the Dawson's Creek soundtrack, as well as the film, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and has become one of her most iconic love tunes.
After tying the knot with Raine, Chantal concentrated on building and being there full-time for her family of three children, all boys. She returned to the music scene in 2002 with her third album, "What If It All Means Something" with the lead single "In This Life" receiving incredible airplay globally with an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and placing on the Adult Top 40, Album Heatseekers and Billboard music charts.
Since 2002, Chantal, now a two-time Juno Award winner for 'Best Pop Album' and 'Best Female Artist', released four other albums "Ghost Stories", "Since We Met: The Best of 1996-2006", "Plain Jane" and the 2012 live album, "In This Life".
Besides being in the spotlight, Chantal has written numerous hits for artists such as Kelly Clarkson (Walk Away), Drake (Over my Dead Body), Gwen Stefani (Rich Girl), Pit Bull & Christina Aguilera (Feel this Moment), along with other artists such as Avril Lavigne, Shakira, Josh Groban and Carrie Underwood. In 2014, Chantal's collaboration song with Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock, "Pay For It" was performed on Saturday Night Live, and her written song "Wasted Love" for NBC The Voice's Matt McAndrew hit #1 on iTunes.
For her charity work with 'War Child Canada' amongst other notable organizations, at the 2014 Juno Awards, Chantal, alongside her husband Raine Maida, won the prestigious "Allan Waters Humanitarian Award". MTV has coined Chantal and Raine "one of Canada's most influential cultural couples" and "Canadian royalty".
With 2015 here, Chantal has once again charted the music airwaves with her latest single, I Will Be, a song in partnership with Kids Help Phone that speaks to her desire to want to help those who feel alone and isolated.
