Growing up in Eastern Ontario (South of Ottawa), Canada, Cory M. Coons has been passionate about music since his early teen years, and he began learning guitar and bass, which led him to crafting his own melodies and musical ideas, while still in High School. Shortly after, he would begin travelling and performing in a variety of cover bands throughout the mid-to-late 90's, in both Ontario and the Southeastern United States.
Now, Cory has just released a brand new melodic rock Cd/Album "The Long Road Home", in early 2018. It has been produced by Multi-Gold & Platinum veteran music producer, Ron Nevison, (Heart, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, Survivor, Styx, Night Ranger.) Additional tracking/overdubs, and driving force on guitar on the new record is guitarist/engineer Marc D. Muir.
Cory was nominated at the "Producer's Choice Honors", (formerly Los Angeles Music Awards), in the "Rock Artist Of The Year" category for 2015. He was the the 2014 recipient of the Producer's Choice Honor for "Studio Album Of The Year," for his Independent E.p "Share A Little Time". Additional nominations also included "Male Singer/Songwriter" and "Record Of The Year". Cory's influences are a collection of various genres like melodic rock and roots-rock, blended with hints of country-rock.
Cory is a respected freelance guitar instructor in the local St. Lawrence Seaway Valley and at Rock My House Music Centre in Kemptville, ON. Cory has opened and performed alongside such treasured national Canadian artists like April Wine, Kim Mitchell, Glass Tiger and David Wilcox.
