Sam Corbett is a founding member and the drummer of the JUNO Award-winning and platinum-selling band The Sheepdogs, and a cancer survivor. He just released his debut solo album NUTANA on April 7 featuring 10 original songs and two captivating covers) he wrote while stepping away from the band to undergo cancer treatment, one month before his first daughter was born. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, the saying goes. In the case of Corbett, the cancer that didn’t kill him made him both stronger and vastly more creative as a songwriter, lyricist, and musician.
