Originally comprising Raine Maida (Michael Raine Maida, 18 February 1970, Weston, Ontario, Canada; vocals/guitar), Mike Turner (b. 5 June 1963, Bradford, West Riding Of Yorkshire, England; guitar), Chris Eacrett (bass) and Jim Newell (drums), Our Lady Peace formed in Toronto, Canada, in 1992. The band took their unusual name from a 1943 poem by American poet Mark Van Doren. The unusual, eclectic nature of the bands music is as much a result of their varied experiences as their musical influences. Maida was a former criminology student at the University of Toronto, while English graduate Turner grew up in Bradford, England during the punk explosion. Eacrett was studying marketing at Ryerson University in Toronto when he made initial contact with founding members Maida and Turner, who then recruited the 17 year old Jeremy Taggart (b. 7 April 1975, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) to replace original drummer Newell.
