ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When Canadian singer-songwriter Mark Perry heard about a fatal bus crash that killed 16 young hockey players and injured almost as many, he felt numb. The former up-and-coming hockey player and rural hockey coach went to his shed to deal. He wrote a song called “Cold Road”.

“Like so many Canadians, I was heartbroken,” says Perry. “Years ago I played hockey with similar teams. I played as a kid along with my four brothers. My son played hockey. I coached a lot of teens… Everything felt really close to home. We’re all grieving for those families.”

Perry’s rural northwest BC region is similar to much of Canada’s sparsely-populated landscape where sports teams need to travel far and wide, back and forth along often-icy highways, to get to their games.

“Cold Road” gets to the heart of why those kids got on the bus, and why they will continue to.

“I have played “Cold Road” LIVE in Calgary, Toronto and Montreal and the response has been a little emotional. Hockey is so much a part of our fabric here in Canada. People relate to following that dream… of making it to the NHL.”
