About the Artists

Cory Marks

This year’s Countryfest at Sutton Bay Park is shaping up to be the greatest one ever, with the confirmation that Canadian platinum and U.S. gold selling artist Cory Marks will headline the festival on Saturday night, July 27.

Marks, a North Bay native, who cites Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Bryan Adams, Ozzy Osbourne, and Rush as early musical influences, grew up with a passion for ice hockey, flying and playing the drums like his hero, Rush’s Neil Peart, began performing music live at a local bar on a dare while attending the Royal Military College, where he was studying to become a fighter pilot.​

In November 2019, Marks released his first single on Better Noise, “Outlaws & Outsiders”, featuring Ivan Moody, Travis Tritt, and Mick Mars, which debuted at #1 on iTunes in Canada as well as #1 on the Billboard Rock Digital Songs and Hard Rock Digital Songs charts and #7 on the Country Digital Songs charts. The song would later peak inside the top 10 on US Mainstream Rock radio, top 5 on German rock radio, and peaked at #12 on Canada Rock radio. It was also certified Gold by Music Canada.

In June 2020, Marks released “Drive”, and announced it as the second single to country radio off his second album, Who I Am, which was released on August 7, 2020 through Better Noise Music. In October 2020, “Blame It on the Double” was released as the second single to rock radio in Germany and the United Kingdom. Marks also released his first Christmas single “Jingle My Bells”, a cover of a song by The Tractors, that month. In April 2021, Marks released a new version of “Blame It on the Double” featuring Tyler Connolly of Theory of a Deadman and Jason Hook.

On June 18, 2021, Marks released the extended play Nashville Mornings. It included a cover of Blaze Foley’s “If I Could Only Fly”, as well as a “Country Mix” of “Blame It on the Double” featuring Tyler Connolly, which was sent to Canadian country radio. He followed that up with the extended play Nashville Nights on August 20, 2021, which included a new track “In Me I Trust”, the solo version of “Outlaws & Outsiders”, and live versions of “Drive” and “Blame It on the Double”.

In November 2022, Marks released the extended play I Rise, which included the singles “Burn It Up” and “Flying”.
