Codie Prevost - All Kinds of Crazy, a Music Review

All Kinds of Crazy – Codie Prevost

Codie Prevost (pronounced PRE-vo) is an up and coming Canadian artist whose earnest style and strong vocals do credit to the music he has chosen to record. There is honesty to his voice and music that is uniquely Canadian, and he is on fire with his latest CD. It may well transition him from “up and coming” to HE’S HERE

All Kinds of Crazy is Codie Prevost’s fourth album. It’s an excellent follow-up to last year’s Get Loud which was a really fun album laden with both strong individual talent and the promise of future possibilities.

There are 8 tracks to All Kinds of Crazy, each one better than the one that came before. From the smooth and dreamy tones of “Someday” to the warm, enveloping hug that is “Melting into You” to the toe-tapping and lively notes of the title song “All Kinds of Crazy”, there is listening pleasure to be had for every country music fan as well as for those who are brand new to genre. “Someday” may well be his signature song, as “The Dance” is for Garth Brooks. 

Codie delivers an album that truly showcases his talent and love of country music. He writes and sings with ease and confidence, a surety born of his proclivity for this style of music. What this means to you and I is that this album is an offering that you will want to have in your CD player or iPod to listen to all the time. The only way it could possibly be better is to listen to it in his mother Veronica's bar in his hometown!

If you ever get the chance to see him live, don’t miss out! He is fun, personable, interactive, and exudes great energy. He will have you singing along with him and jumping up to dance, clap, and stomp your feet. A concert with Codie Prevost is one you won’t soon forget.  

In 2010 Codie won an award for Best Country Song from the Independent Music Awards and was also nominated for the Lieutenant Governor’s Arts Award. During a span from 2011 to 2013, Codie won awards at the Saskatchewan Country Music Association including Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. Codie was nominated for the Canadian Country Music Awards Rising Star in both 2011 and 2012.  

This past year has been a huge one for Codie. He has played concerts with the likes of fun group Florida Georgia Line, the most yummy Joe Nichols, and uber-talented Big and Rich, and even began a tour with fellow artist Stephen Maguire called “Imagine No Bullying.” During this tour Codie Prevost, Stephen, and the Canadian Red Cross went from school to school playing music and speaking to the masses in an attempt to bring bullying to an end.

He is a full-bodied beer in a sea of light beer offerings, or to keep in context with his latest CD, he’ll be your whiskey! He is a solid person and musician, who remains humble and true to his roots to this day.
