Koreen received a grant from RAWLCO Radio to produce her first self-titled CD in 2012. Her first kick at the can was an easy going classic rock/country-style album of her first originals combined with cover songs from luminaries such as Olivia Newton-John, ABBA, and Fleetwood Mac. Combining albums and singles, Koreen delivers an eclectic variety from the bubbly "Lucky" and soulful "Face to Face" to the jazzier "Playing My Emotions," and the edgier "Law of Attraction."
Koreen Perry is enjoying film success with her originals as well as radio exposure. Her songs "Lucky" and "Playing My Emotions" debut on the feature film "Gone By Dawn," directed by Shaun Donnelly.
Actress and singer, Koreen plays Sheryl Mullens, the principal supporting role, in a feature film currently in the works called "Breaking Spirits," again directed by Donnelly. It will feature three more of Perry's songs "See Through You," "You Don't Know Me," and "Dreams in a Bucket."
Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Koreen was surrounded by music, theatre, film and performance from an early age. As a growing vocalist, Koreen was part of Edmonton Musical Theatre and Coopers Studios before launching as a professional recording artist. Koreen's professional life has also seen her as a TV reporter, and she is currently a professional live closed captioner (stenographer), which gave her the opportunity to work in Australia for six months in 2005/2006.
Starting a new career at the mid-point of life is an adrenaline rush
for singer-songwriter Koreen Perry that's been a long time coming...
"When it's in your blood, it's in your blood," Perry responded when asked what prompted her to return to the stage.
"I started writing songs again. I didn't think I'd get into it seriously, but life has a way of surprising you."

2015, Song of the Year puts "Lucky," written by Koreen Perry and Jimmy Whiffen as a semi-finalist! http://songcontest.songoftheyear.com/koreenperry.htm
Song of the Year Contest
Koreen Perry’s heartfelt vocals are the star here. “Face to Face” is a perfect track for her to shine, with this ballad of depth and hope. The follow up, “Turning Point”, another tender ballad, meshes notes of adult contemporary, easy listening, and for good measure, a bit of country. The Ep is balanced nicely with the jazzy, pop- emo “Playing My Emotions” and the edgier, rocky “Law of Attraction”. Overall, a nicely crafted group of electric calling card singles.
