Cory Marks Releases “Better Off”

“Better Off,” the second single from Better Noise Music Nashville artist, Cory Marks, is a rocking, countrified reflection on love not-quite-lost. The relatable break-up ballad is about bittersweet moment of parting ways with a toxic person in your life for your own happiness, even though it’s hard to let them go.  The video for “Better Off” is a walk through a town filled with memories of that previously-special someone.  “I had a great time on set while making this video.  Blake (director Blake Judd) did a great job showing love and loss while not being too obvious about but still capturing great moments in and out of the relationship,” explains Cory.

Full of autobiographical storytelling, guitar-driven anthems, drinking songs, and breakup ballads, Cory Marks’ songs are rooted in the influence of his hometown, where he grew up surrounded by the salt-of-the-earth residents of North Bay, Ontario. It was there where he began playing drums at ten years old. Whenever he wasn’t banging along to songs by Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, and Rush, he was listening to his parents’ country records, developing a deep appreciation for outlaws like Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. Those two genres — classic country and amped-up rock — would eventually join forces in Marks’ own music, earning him a string of gigs with heavyweights like Toby Keith and Brantley Gilbert along the way.

Marks will be touring with Canadian Country star, Gord Bamford throughout Canada on #REDNEK Music Fest from Spring to Summer 2020.
