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. Choosing to return to his independent songwriting work, Douglas left the band the following year and would start another band called Beat Prophets. While working on a Neil Young tribute album, Borrowed Tunes, the Skydiggers introduced Martin 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 Dibble and Sterling, 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" (featured on an episode of Party of Five), before the band dissolved in late 1996. Read more on Last.fm.
