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...

“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...

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

What they say...

“Offers a real slice of life, sans saccharin. I recommend it.”   ~ Rogue Folk Reviews

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

A dozen albums strong, Mark Perry is deeply loved in regions across Canada for his good-humoured, thought-provoking performances and socially-narrative songs. He is a storyteller of time & place, sweeping you up in emotional and animated tales of sinking ferries, springtime floods, NHL dreams… or buying a car for “two cords of wood and 24 beer”. “New Jersey has Springsteen, New York has Billy Joel, northern BC has Mark Perry,” salutes music reviewer Frank Peebles. Towns dying, towns being born, small planes going down… from Halifax to Haida Gwaii, this Canadian singer-songwriter draws us in and connects us from coast to coast.

Made a little video. Any guesses as to which song ? New recording is closing in on being finished...but I keep writing more songs..darn, sort of. It's really quite Northwest Canadiana, which I'm really happy with ! It's got some darker, introspective moments, but it has hope and Fun too ! Is it worldly ? But of course ! We humans have so much in common it's crazy ! ...We are getting calls about gigs again, but everything is different.. we are dwelling on a release date and ways to tour to promote record. That'll be us on the roof of your favourite liquor store with a container below, for bills and loose change !

Watched " Social Dilemma" and it has me a little jumpy over Facebook...omg WE ARE USERS ! Use responsibly I guess..
peace mp

Jerry Jeff Walker is gone. He helped a lot of us through some interesting times. From a New York folk kinda guy, writing"Mr Bojangles" to a Cowboyish fun approach to songwriting, I took him with me in many formats, records ,cd's, cassettes and yes, even 8 track. Still have "Woman in Texas" and his buddy, Guy Clark's song,"boats to build" on my phone. We used to have too many beer and sing along with " Pissin' in the Wind"some nights.
(impressive eh)
I think Sammy Davis jr, Dylan and yes,even Whitney Houston, covered Mr. Bojangles. Any JJW memories anyone ?

Look at these !! Just got these beautiful size14's, and in the rain and mud... my feet are warm and dry! ..I am tickled. You don't even have to fold these rubber boots down to be cool > anybody remember folding down the black and orange baby's to be fashionable ? or was that just an Alfred avenue thing ? We are starting to Winterize around here now. Hope it's not too late.
I keep being inspired -writing songs..darn, I've got to stop, get to work. The grasshopper story is haunting me..Drain and roll up your hoses eh ! put some things away !! it's coming........
