What they say...

“Another brilliant example of Mark Perry’s ability to weave a great story that has humor, social commentary, commercial observations and the perils of the failure to find balance. It’s the little added observations in Perry’s songs that make his contributions so important and significant. ”
~ Bruce Swan, WPKN / WRFR Review

What they say...

“New Jersey has Springsteen, New York has Billy Joel, northern B.C. has Mark Perry. These are the storytellers of their times and places.”


~ Frank Peebles / Prince George Citizen

What they say...

“Mark Perry had our audience captivated through the entire show. His heart shines through in his voice and his songs. Mark Perry’s performance is a ‘must-see’ and a ‘must-see again’.”   ~ Bruce Champion, Terrace Concert Society

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, Vancouver, BC

What they say...

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

What they say...

“Geography may have shaped Perry’s character, but it hasn’t compromised his music’s universal appeal.”   ~ The Georgia Straight, Vancouver, BC

“Mark is a northern phenomenon. His stories are universal and captivating, delivered with a down-home sense of humour that makes you feel like you’re swapping tales with your favourite cousin. As a bonus, Mark’s music is irresistibly danceable and he is surrounded by some of Canada’s finest musicians. A survey taken at the 2023 Midsummer Festival in Smithers showed that Mark was an audience favourite.” ~ Marian Rose, Midsummer Music Festival

What they say...

“Mark’s storytelling was truly heartfelt, honest and filled with humour and humility.”


~ Joe Taylor, Blast! Toronto

What they say...

“It was an entirely entertaining evening that was over too soon.”


~ Tom Best, Interior News

A Mark Perry concert is like a Canadian roadtrip...

He takes us into rural Canada, the spirit of its people, the power of its landscapes and the impacts of some unique historic events. He is one of northern Canada’s great bard’s, known and loved for his relatable songwriting, intra-song banter and down home performance style. Hearts are filled and toes are tapping as he connects us with the power of BC’s mountains and rivers, the passion of Saskatchewan kids chasing their hockey dreams, the grit and spunk of a young northern dad who buys the family car for “two cords of wood and 24 beer”, and the folks in Canada’s boomtowns who unite to endure when mother nature or failing resource industries threaten to defeat them. He draws us in to reflect and to laugh at ourselves, connecting us from coast to coast.

“New Jersey has Springsteen, New York has Billy Joel, northern BC has Mark Perry. These are the storytellers of their times and places.”~ Frank Peebles, Prince George Citizen
