It's a celebratory year for Cory M. Coons this year. Fresh from the success of his recent Ron Nevison-produced album release, "The Long Road Home," the celebrated Canadian singer-songwriter has released "Retrospective," a collection of previously recorded and re-released material that spans the award-winning artist's career from 1999-2010. "Retrospective" is available on cdbaby.
From that album, Coons has culled two single releases, "Crumbs" (a driving "Rootsy", Southern Rocker story about a working man trying to raise a family and keep food on the table in the deep south)and "Unanswered," (a 70's/80's AOR "Melodic Rock"-influenced mid-tempo ballad.) Both are being distributed through MTS Records on February 8, 2018. The tracks are available on iTunes, amazon, Spotify and all other major digital outlets, worldwide.
