Ontario native Cory Marks has been making a name for himself with his country-rock style and now he’s taking his music and artistry up a notch with the August 27 release of Nashville Nights. This album is “a rock-tinged follow-up” to his Nashville Mornings EP released earlier this summer and zeros in on Marks’s energetic rock background with songs that speak about being true to yourself, living life to the fullest, falling in love, and what comes with those emotions. This collection has Marks showcasing his signature songwriting skills, which are rooted in the Nashville way of storytelling and backed by his coming-of-age experiences.
Marks celebrated the release of the EP, stating,
“This is a sequel to my last EP Nashville Mornings, except this time I show off my rock influences. I always want to make sure that I’m showcasing all artistic sides of me, and I’m happy that I found a new way to share both of these sides with fans with these two collections of songs. These tracks are meant to fill your Saturday nights with fun and rock ’n’ roll. Party on and see you out on the road!”

Horror-thriller film The Retaliators had its world premiere at Arrow Video FrightFest 2021 in London on August 30, in which Marks has an onscreen cameo and a song featured on the original soundtrack.
Marks said of the film,
“The Retaliators is a movie produced by my label (Better Noise) and features my label mates Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe, members of Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach. [I play] the role of ‘Jimmy’ the bartender at their club bar/hideout …I’m very thankful for the opportunity to be part of this film.”
Marks also has a new studio album in the works. With all of this combined, Marks is just beginning to make a significant mark in the music industry. This really is his time to shine!
Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
