About Chad Kroeger

Songwriter, performer, producer, label executive, entrepreneur -- Chad Kroeger is truly a renaissance man in the world of rock and roll. Front man and primary songwriter for multi-platinum selling Canadian group Nickelback, Kroeger has led the band from a small town in Alberta to the very peak of international stardom with chart-topping instant classics such as "How You Remind Me" and "Someday", and millions of albums sold all over the world.

Kroeger's Midas touch has also extended to his endeavors outside of Nickelback. As a solo artist, Kroeger had success with "Hero", a song featured in the blockbuster movie Spiderman. He followed that success up with the smash hit "Why Don't You and I" found on Carlos Santana's album Shaman". He helped launch the career of the band Default by co-writing and producing their platinum debut "the fall out". As co-founder and co-owner of 604 Records, Kroeger has developed numerous artists including Theory of a Deadman, whose award winning debut LP he produced and co-wrote.

With the release of a new Nickelback record later this year, Kroeger and Nickelback are set to continue their success for many years to come.
