Nathan Wiley is a musician and singer from Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada. His music is generally a blend of modern rock and blues. Wiley started out as a guitarist in a handful of local independent projects, including The Plan, Space Opera and Evil Agents. He was also a member of The Tubetracks during a brief period when he lived in British Columbia. His unique guitar style always contributed to the sound of the groups he worked with, most notably his adept skill at surf music, being heavily influenced by Dick Dale, among others.

During his involvement in these groups, he didn't do any vocal work, with the exception of a few songs from Space Opera, which mostly consisted of talking or yelling, but no actual singing. In 2002, he released his first solo project, Bottom Dollar. Not only was it his first solo effort, but it was a fully professionally produced CD, as opposed to the low-tech cassettes produced by all of his previous projects. While the surf influence wasn't evident, his talents as a singer and songwriter were startling, after so many years of being known as primarily a lead guitarist rather than a frontman. Some media reviews drew a comparison to Tom Waits, but most fans seem to agree that, while some of the lyrics are similar to Waits' style, a closer comparison in lyric style would be Bob Dylan. Bottom Dollar gained much critical acclaim, winning awards from the East Coast Music Association and SOCAN, and getting repeated airplay on CBC Radio.

The video for the lead single "Bottom Dollar Baby" was played in rotation on the Canadian muic station MuchMoreMusic, and remained in their Top 40 for several weeks, even gaining spots higher than such hitmakers as Celine Dion and Cher. The album was released through the indie-friendly group Sonic, and was eventually picked up for distribution by Warner Bros. Records. The follow-up High Low was released in 2004, also gaining similar awards and acclaim. Read more on Last.fm.
