Michael Anthony Maida is a Canadian singer, best known as the front man of the rock band Our Lady Peace. He has stated that he "added Raine to his birth name as a personal statement on his pursuit of the arts." He has always written all of his band's lyrics and attributes his influences, including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and U2's Bono. Maida's voice has been infamously described as a mix between Geoff Tate and Billy Corgan by music critic Robert Christgau. He is married to Chantal Kreviazuk.
