Info for Hard Sail
Hard Sail is Chantal's sixth studio album, and first since the release of Plain Jane in October of 2009. For the past six years, Chantal Kreviazuk took a break from her role as one of Canada’s foremost singer-songwriters. Instead, she was busy penning hits for the likes of Drake and Carrie Underwood—all while raising her three sons and getting lost in the joys of motherhood that she says bring new authenticity into her life.
“I was writing all the time, but I didn't feel the need to return to my solo career unless it was a departure and reflected my growth as a human being,” says Chantal. “And I wanted to stay close to the nest. My young children needed me and there is only so much leasing space for love. Now they are busy in their lives and I am compelled to sing more and connect more with my audience once again. It's been a very organic process!”
Chantal – the three-time Juno Award winner – has spent the last few years focused on raising her three sons with husband Raine Maida, as well as her other musical passion, crafting songs. Most recently, Chantal has written for Drake (“Over My Dead Body”), Pitbull (“Feel This Moment”) and Kendrick Lamar (“Pay For It”) –which she performed with the rapper on Saturday Night Live last season. She has also penned tracks for Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, Josh Groban and Carrie Underwood.
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.
Chantal and Raine became members of the Order of Canada, recognizing their efforts to raise awareness and support for numerous causes, including human and animal rights, mental health, education and the environment. Chantal has been an ambassador to War Child for 16 years and one of the organization’s founding artists. She is also a proud supporter of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Polar Bears International , First Nations People, Sick Kids Hospital and Children’s Hospital Foundation in Winnipeg. Last year, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Winnipeg, her alma mater.

Born in Winnipeg, Canada in 1973, Chantal Kreviazuk can remember having had the yearning to create music long before she actually could. As a young child, Chantal would sit and observe her brothers beating away at the keys of the family's piano, and this mixture of curiosity and observation resulted in what Chantal calls "hand-eye-ear coordination." Simply put, Chantal could play the piano from the moment she touched it - without any formal training. This natural interest led Chantal's parents to enroll her in classical music training, and it was here that - for several years - Chantal learnt an appreciation and wider scope for music that would ultimatey benefit her own artistic endeavours.
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 Stonse 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.
