Hemingway Corner was formed in 1992 by two established singer-songwriters, David Martin and Johnny Douglas. They had hits on the Canadian pop charts with "Man on a Mission" and "Love, Love, Love", and received a Juno Award nomination for "Best New Group" in 1996. Eventually, Johnny formed another group. While working on a Neil Young tribute album, the Skydiggers introduced David to Scott Dibble (from the Toronto band Watertown) and Mark Sterling from Edmonton. They would record their own cover song on the tribute album, "Tell Me Why" as a newly revamped Hemingway Corner. With some material already written by Scott and Mark, the band released a follow-up album, Under the Big Sky in 1995. Three more singles hit the charts including "Big Sky", "Tell Me Why" and "Watch Over You" before the band dissolved in late 1996. David, Mark and Scott have now released a new Hemingway Corner CD entitled "Speed Of Life" featuring the new single "Think Of Love". David Martin joins me on the show to talk about the CD and share some songs from it.
