Steven Theodore Mazur (born December 21, 1977 in Port Huron, Michigan, U.S.) is the current lead guitarist in the Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace.
Mazur has two sisters and two stepsisters and grew up in Richmond, Michigan, attending Cardinal Mooney Catholic College Preparatory High School in Marine City. He graduated from Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music in 2000, opening the commencement ceremony by playing a solo acoustic guitar version of "Think About It," written by Herb Alpert, Will Calhoun, and Doug Wimbish.
Mazur replaced founding member Mike Turner as guitarist for Our Lady Peace during the recording of the band's fifth album, Gravity. The band sorted through thousands of audition tapes in search of a new guitar player, but in the end selected Mazur, who had been introduced to them through a mutual friend.
Before joining Our Lady Peace, he was in many different bands including Dragonfly, Butter Jackson, Ph (pronounced F), and Gabriel Mann's band. He played on the title track for the video game No One Lives Forever for the PlayStation 2. He also gave guitar lessons at Southern Thumb Music in Richmond and in Los Angeles.
Mazur attended his first Our Lady Peace concert as a fan on July 10, 2001 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. His first appearance on stage with the band was at the video shoot for "Somewhere Out There", followed by his first concert on stage with the band on May 15, 2002 at The Asylum in Dayton, Ohio.
