Corbin Murdoch began writing songs while engaged in Environmental Studies at York University in 2003 and dreaming of the greener pastures of his native Vancouver. The Nautical Miles (Tim Tweedale: dobros, pedal-steel, trumpet; Simon Rotheisler: electric bass; Lucas Schuller: drums, percussion) were recruited during his visits home.

The band’s first full-length record, 'Tell Me Again How This Place Got Its Name' was released in 2005, to wide acclaim, with many critics remarking on the quality of the writing and lush, intricate arrangements. The album was named one of the top ten albums of 2007 by Edmonton’s VUE Weekly. The group’s latest and third album, Wartime Lovesong, was released in 2009, again to critical acclaim.

Corbin and the band have toured across the country, showcased at Canadian Country Music Week and The Western Canadian Music Awards, and Corbin has toured solo in the UK, Sweden, Denmark and Poland.

His baritone voice has been compared to those of Stan Rogers, Bruce Springsteen a young Ian Tyson and Johnny Cash “Corbin's fine baritone vocals, along with his great song writing add to the mix to create a memorable folk/roots/alt-country experience.”
