Nearly a year ago, back in January 2010, I put up an article about Craig Moritz. A country singer from Canada who has some songs I really like. Here’s Craig’s article. And it was even before that I told you about Jason Rogers. Also from Canada, and also a really good singer/songwriter. You can that article here.
And now, it’s time for me to tell you about Codie Prevost. I’m not sure how I missed knowing Codie. But I know him now, and I have been listening to his music for the past hour or more.
Codie started playing music in 2005 in Saskatchewan Canada, with band members Codie Prevost, Allison Tymiak, Al Leblanc, Joey Landreth and Hal Schrenk. His Facebook page says he now resides in Nashville.
He has a lot of music on his Facebook page. You can also hear a few songs on this CMT.ca site. In fact, the five paragraphs that follow are directly from Codie’s biography on that CMT.ca site. So here you go – This is Codie Prevost. [Source]
Building on the momentum from his first two albums “The Road Ahead” (2005) and “Spin 6-PAK Vol. I” (2008), both which have been honored with accolades, Codie Prevost has just launched his highly-anticipated third album, “Get Loud”. An exciting change for Prevost this time around was having the opportunity to work with one of Canada’s top producers, Tom McKillip in Vancouver, who captured his unique style and sound. From the lead off single/video “Rolling Back To You” to the potential new wedding song “From Where I Stand”, this album is sure to have something for everyone. The hidden gem on “Get Loud” is “I’m Okay”, written for a friend who was having a hard time dealing with the loss of her brother.
With Main stage performances in 2009 at Dauphin Countryfest and Extreme Country Fever where he received a standing ovation, it is no surprise that he was hand picked by T.J. Greaney, publisher of Country Line Magazine, to perform at the highly acclaimed SxSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. He has also showcased his talents in Nashville during the CMA festival as part of the AristoMedia Global Artist Showcase.
Prevost consistently captivates his audiences, treating them to his upbeat and feel-good singles like “Next Weekend”, “Not Just The Beer Talkin’, “Spin”, and “Good Livin’” to sincere ballads including “Call Me When You Get There”, and the infamous tear jerker “I’m Okay.”
Gracing the stage with boundless energy and passion, and conveyed with a genuine and non-assuming presence, Codie Prevost has been a much sought-after act ever since he kick started his music career in 2005.
There’s the article– Now, how about a look at one from his YouTube channel.
Let me know what you guys think of Codie. I like him. Hope I get the chance to see him live sometime soon.
It is time for me to run. It’s almost Christmas! Can you believe it! One week away. I’m pretty much ready for Christmas. I do need to get out today and deliver a few gifts, and I just might go to the mall and buy more.
I will talk to you all real soon!
