“Coons’ voice is wonderful…timeless!” – Indie Pulse Music
2019 has seen Cory M. Coons at the top of his game. Produced by multi-platinum veteran Ron Nevison (Heart, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, Survivor, Styx, Night Ranger), Cory’s album “The Long Road Home” has spawned no less than three radio airplay chart hits: “Would You Stay,” “Long Road (Dead Man’s Dream)” and “Once Too Many, Twice Not Enough.” The critically-acclaimed outing also garnered Coons two Radio Music Awards and a nomination at the Ottawa Sound Music Awards. If that wasn’t enough, Coons also released his first career retrospective album, aptly titled, “Retrospective.” That album contained another radio hit, “Crumbs,” which has also received more than 18,000 streams on Spotify. In fact, Cory’s music has been streamed more than 34,000 times on the leading streaming service.
Now, the prolific melodic roots rocker returns with his fourth single from “The Long Road Home:” “Break The Fall” (MTS Records). Coons says, “Break The Fall’ is a romantic tale of heartbreak & loss, with hints in the story of one that got away…And the power of one’s words bringing a belief in truth and change.”
