“The Long Road Home” is the name of the new 8-track cd by Pleasant Valley native, Cory M. Coons, and the first single, “Long Road (Dead Man’s Dream)” has been released and is a hard-driving rocking track, promising much for the full album. The music was produced by veteran producer, Ron Nevison, (Heart, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, Survivor, Styx, Night Ranger), and the band backing Cory is tight and powerful.
Cory was nominated at the “Producer’s Choice Honours”, in the “Rock Artist Of The Year” category for 2015, and was the 2014 recipient of the Producer’s Choice Honour for “Studio Album Of The Year” for his E.P., “Share A Little Time”. Cory’s influences are a collection of various genres like Melodic Rock and Roots-Rock, blended with previous hints of Country-Rock, and all of these sounds come through his music. He is a respected Guitar teacher at Rock My House Music Centre in Kemptville.
The man has a growing track record (two puns for the price of one!), having opened and performed alongside such legendary Canadian artists as April Wine, Kim Mitchell, Glass Tiger, and David Wilcox.
The new release will be available at some select local locations, like Sandy Row Golf Course (South Mountain), Shelley’s Kitchen (Heckston) and Rock My House Music Centre (South Gower Park). And anyone who is interested in receiving a copy directly from Cory can email him at any time: [email protected] with your address details.
