Mark Perry is a Popular & Prolific Singer-Songwriter from Smithers, British Columbia.

What they say...

“Mark Perry had our audience captivated through the entire show. His heart shines through in his voice and his songs. Weeks afterwards people are still coming to me saying how much they loved it. Mark Perry’s performance is a ‘must-see’ and a ‘must-see again’.”

~ Bruce Champion, Terrace Concert Society

What they say...

“Mark writes the kinds of songs other writers wish they had written.”

 ~Shari Ulrich, Juno Award-winning musician & songwriter

What they say...

“The soundtrack for my life is taken from Mark Perry’s music. His song-writing, musical expression and stage presence emanates the very best, most magical qualities of life in a northern town. Perry’s music invites me in to sit by his fire and feel like a cherished neighbour for a while.”

~ Carolina DeRyk, Host, CBC Radio North

What they say...

“This singer/songwriter from Smithers is one of our finest, a guy whose songs are full of the telling little joys, frustrations and messy minutiae of real life. In a world of so much artifice, he’s one of the real things.”

~ J.P.M., The Province newspaper, Vancouver, BC

What they say...

“Geography may have shaped Perry’s character, but it hasn’t compromised his music’s universal appeal.”

~ Georgia Strait, Vancouver, BC

What they say...

“Offers a real slice of life, sans saccharin. I recommend it.”

~ Rogue Folk Review

Hey - In Whitehorse and loving the people and the Yukon. Getting set to start the long drive home. Very, very happy with the project so far. Tobin, Jordy and I just really connected. This is a warm record with a strong, and I mean STRONG Northwest feel. I love where I live and I really don't care if some people say it's "not a worldly enough record". The " Heiden" guitar in front of this piano is at the heart of this group of songs. It sounds and feels and plays amazing !!! We will be recording some colour- voices and instruments in Smithers, mid November.
The loose release date late February/early March 2018.
oh ya - one more thing - yahoooo !!!!!

In less than 24 hours..
Went to see Gwynne Dyer speak last night and really enjoyed his thoughts on the world, as it is, right now. He is brilliant and a treat to hear and see live.
This morning Grant, Lou Siguenza and I walked up Malkow lookout trail and as you can see from the pic it was colourful and outright awesome, beautiful hike. Got a phone call from my good friend RVZ at the top. Of course i answered - it's Rachelle !
Then I went to the hearings for missing and murdered women . This is an incredible, moving experience. What these families have dealt with is heart breaking. There has been no closure for them, maybe a little numbing. We have to do better in this country for First Nations people. We can, we must and we will.
Driving home I listened to Roy Forbes sing Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" Beautiful. 2 great Canadians. I am so proud and grateful to live here BUT we can do even better. We have to….overwhelmed right now.
