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...

“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...

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


~ Tom Best, Interior News

What they say...

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


~ Joe Taylor, Blast! Toronto

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...

Mark Perry is one of Canada’s great bard’s, known and loved for his socially-narrative, good-humoured and thought-provoking songs. He sweeps you up in animated tales of Canadian characters and events, often paying homage to the creative resilience of rural townsfolk — the stuff that shows up when mills, mines and fisheries are shutting down, rivers are rising, and when buying the family car means trading “two cords of wood and 24 beer”. This popular songwriter is set to release his 13th album, ‘Northwest’, in late Fall of 2021. He is a storyteller of time & place, connecting us from coast to coast.

“New Jersey has Springsteen, New York has Billy Joel, northern BC has Mark Perry.” ~ Frank Peebles

Raven - song 1 from “Northwest “ last Christmas outside Canadian tire I watched customers coming out with shopping carts heaped full. As a fellow human I felt guilty and wasteful-I got home and this guy (or his cousin..?) was waiting - squawking/mocking me. Sure it’s a goofy thing - but if it gets 1 laugh out of you - worth it ! Besides every record needs a bird song eh ... See MoreSee Less
