If you're catching a train Sunday morning at Ottawa's Via Rail station, you might just run into a Canadian music icon before you board.

"They're running me out of town at that point!" veteran singer-songwriter Steven Page joked to In Town and Out host Giacomo Panico earlier today.

Actually, the former Barenaked Ladies frontman is touring his most recent solo album, Heal Thyself Pt 1: Instinct.

It's a record filled with the catchy hooks and soul-searching lyrics Page has come to be known for.

"My thing kind of has always been to write bright-sounding pop songs with darker lyrics," Page said on Saturday.

"It's always interesting to see how people respond to it."

Page will be playing at the train station at 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, with another performance the next day at Kingston's Via Rail station.

Listen to his wide-ranging In Town And Out interview, which touches upon his relationship with his former bandmates, his mental-health challenges and a few other pressing topics.
