“It’s just a little too hard to label Cory Cruise, and that suits him just fine. Be it country, pop, roots or adult contemporary, he knows what you really are is a music fan – a fan of good music and he’s not about to disappoint.” – Kevin Barber (Barbershop Podcast)
Cory Cruise recently released his much anticipated debut album, “1221”. This album has been created using the talents of world renowned musicians, producers & mixing engineers. The end result is an album that has its own unique sound and is still distinctly Cory Cruise. Cory is a 9 time Niagara Music Awards winner in categories that span the board including Male Vocalist of the Year & Country Artist of the Year. He has also received an Art’s & Culture Award for his musical contributions from the city of Welland.
Cory got his start after discovering his late father’s guitar, tucked away in a closet. Now Cory’s music is being heard all over the world. Through his support of our Canadian Forces & having written a song dedicated to our fallen called “Loving Memory”, he has proven his natural talent to connect emotionally. Cory’s eclectic musical influences have made him very diverse and gifted him with an ability to radiate in many genres. His passion for music is evident in the way he expresses each song. He uses his guitar as an extension of himself to captivate his audience with every performance.
Cory has shared the stage with notable artists including Steve Earle, Joe Grushecky, Tara Oram, Bowfire & The Trews and has showcased his talents in venues like the Scotiabank Theatre, the Meridian Centre, & the MetroToronto Convention Centre. Cory has also been a part of Festivals that include the Sound of Music Festival in Burlington, Launch Music Festival in Pennsylvania, KOI Music Festival in Kitchener & Canal Days in Port Colborne.
