Growing up in Eastern Ontario (South of Ottawa), Canada, Cory M. Coons has been passionate about music since his early teen years, and began learning Guitar and Bass which led him to crafting his own melodies and musical ideas while still in High School, and shortly after would continue 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 currently as a Solo Recording Artist and Songwriter, Cory has just released a brand new melodic rock Cd/Album "The Long Road Home", in early 2018. It has been produced once again by Multi-Platinum Veteran Music Producer Ron Nevison, (Heart, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, Survivor, Styx, Night Ranger), along with additional tracking/overdubs, and driving force on guitar on this new record, guitarist/engineer Marc D. Muir. Cory was named Best Rock Songwriter for “Long Road (Dead Man’s Dream)” and Best Americana Artist for “Once Too Many, Twice Not Enough” at the 2018 "Radio Music Awards" on The Indie Music Channel, as well as a "World Songwriting Awards" "Finalist" in 2019 for the single "Would You Stay".
