Our Lady Peace were formed in 1992. Vocalist Raine Maida met guitarist Mike Turner when they studied in the University of Toronto via a "musicians wanted" ad placed by Mike on local paper, Now Magazine. The two then formed a band called As If with Jim Newell playing drums and a friend of Mike Turner's, Paul Martin, playing bass.

They played a number of gigs in Oshawa, singing a mix of original and cover materials. Unfortunately, Paul departed and that matter made the band outing another "musicians wanted" ad for a replacement. They then accepted Chris Eacrett, a business student at Ryerson University, as their bass player.
