Cory M Coons ~ Singer/Songwriter Special Guest On 10/29/2021
For the past 30 years, Ottawa-based singer-songwriter Cory M Coons has been performing and recording his signature blend of rootsy rock. His brand of melodic, guitar-driven music and often introspective lyrics have brought favorable comparisons to icons like Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and even Keith Urban. Coons has amassed over 170K Spotify streams, and he has racked up both a Top 20 iTunes Canada single and a #2 international iTunes single. This kind of popularity has also made the industry stand up and take notice: Coons has been nominated for multiple Josie Music Awards and the International Singer Songwriter Association Awards, and he’s won the prestigious Producer’s Choice Honors for his work with legendary rock producer, Ron Nevison (Heart, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, Survivor, Styx, Night Ranger.)
On October 1st, 2021, Cory M. Coons will release the latest chapter in his storied career. His single, “Freedom Road” (MTS Records) paints an accurate picture of the current situation at home and abroad, that has built up much frustration, anger, and confusion in the world. Coons wants his audience to realize that they should be brave and stand up for their beliefs. He believes that asking God for strength and finding common ground is our way to redemption.
“I feel the song talks about never taking freedom and the simple things in life for granted in these current difficult times we are faced with,” explains Cory. “It also covers the loss of innocence and asking God for healing from above on our journey of faith.”
“Freedom Road” was written by Cory M. Coons, and it features the talents of Marc D. Muir on guitars and Chris Golden (son of Oak Ridge Boys’ William Lee Golden) on drums and keys. Coons produced the track with Muir, who also mixed and mastered.
