Adam Gontier is a rock singer and songwriter whose career spans multiple number 1 hits, Billboard music awards, and major placement by franchises such as WWE. As original frontman for Three Days Grace, it’s safe to say that Adam Gontier’s voice defined an era. Leading songs like “Never Too Late” and “Animal I Have Become” to record-smashing success, Adam wrote some of the most recognizable hard rock songs of the 2000s. In the process, he also brought mental health into the rock arena.

His impact didn’t stop with Three Days Grace. With his current band Saint Asonia, Adam Gontier continues to pen essential hard rock songs — most recently with Introvert and Extrovert, dual EPs that are combined into one full-length release. On this episode of Trevor Talks, Adam shares about how those two sets of songs tell a story that begins in quarantine and resolves on the other side. He also shares about why it matters to keep fighting stigma around mental health, and how music has been his lifelong outlet through his own journey through addiction into sobriety.

The conversation is a full circle moment for podcast host Trevor, who had his own interest in rock shaped by Three Days Grace’s music — as did thousands of other aspiring musicians and creatives. This is a truly unforgettable glimpse into the story and the mind of a rock legend.
