biographical info

Corwin Fox is a Canadian songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who has been hailed as “a shining light in Canadian roots music” by Doug Cox (artistic director, Vancouver Island Music Festival).  Known as much for his studio expertise as his live show, Corwin has toured extensively across Canada, the U.S. and Australia performing his songs on banjo, guitar and ukelele. He has played venues and festivals large and small, some by himself, some with his current bands,  Morlove or The Chimney Swallows, and some with such luminaries as Fred Penner, Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long, Alex Cuba, Kim Barlow and CR Avery.

Born in Halifax and raised in Ottawa, Corwin went to high school at Canterbury High, a school for the arts, where he studied theatre and learned to play bass and guitar. From 2000-2002 Corwin attended Fanshawe College (London, ON) to take the Music Industry Arts Recording Engineering program. While there, he won the award in 2001 for best song from EMI Music Publishing Canada with a song called “Doctor God”.  

Back on the west coast in 2006, Corwin was asked for the first time to produce a recording for another artist: Sarah Noni Metzner's "Daybreak Mourning" (Dog My Cat Records) with which she won Best Solo Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2007). Since then, he has produced over thirty albums for other artists and worked in the studio on over 100 albums in various capacities as well as composing music for theatre and documentary soundtracks. Of his solo music, Corwin has released two full-length albums, Compassionate Relay (2002), Dream Water Rain Music (2004) and four e.p.'s: Tiger (2005), He Remembers What I Forgot (2007), Cloud Seating (2009) and Minutiae (2011).

Corwin continues to write, record and tour, although the bulk of his time is now gladly spent in his Cumberland, BC studio and hanging out with his kids.
