Allison Tymiak was awarded All Star Band Fiddle; Charles Dumont took home the All Star Band Drum Award; Rich McFarlane stopped on stage and picked up the award for All Star Band Guitar, and Al Leblanc was awarded Manager of the Year; the first time Al was awarded this honor was in 2006 for Codie’s debut album, The Road Ahead.

Unique voice styling, stage presence and an ability

Codie Prevost is gifted. He has the fire of passion for music and the soul of a singer. He and his guitar could set the world alight with their tales of love and love lost to the passing of time. His style if similar to Keith Urban and Bryan Adams and there’s a sprinkle of Rob Thomas’s panache thrown in for good measure. But Codie is his own man and could easily steal the applause from even the most admired of his contemporaries. ‘Better Off Alone’ is clever, cryptic country music and you can almost smell the burning of the strings as Codie strums the guitar with the passion emanating from his musically inspired soul. Codie Prevost sings about his past, his present and his hopes for his future. His voice is superb and there’s fire in his belly. Codie wants to perform; he wants to show you what he can do and- most of all- he wants to entertain. Let him tell you the story of his life. Let him make you click your fingers and tap your feet. ‘The Road Ahead’ is refreshing, a breath of fresh air sweeping the dust from the music scene. You believe every word, you identify with Codie’s sentiment. Never before has the plight of the young male as he trundles through life been penned, phrased and expressed so elegantly.

The relationship between father and son is expressed to wonderful perfection on this album and one soon begins to wonder precisely where this Mr Codie Prevost has been hiding all these years. Is Mr Prevost yet another find that has gone under the radar of the music executives so busy signing Pop Princesses that they don’t recognise talent when it walks past them onward to fan worship, applause and adoration? To quote the Kaiser Chiefs out of context, when people get a hold of Codie’s new album “I predict a riot”. Country music with a dash of rock thrown in to spice things up. ‘The Road Ahead’ is a truly remarkable album that tells of a talent with much more to say. He means what he says and says what he means. He loves her and it’s not just the beer talking. She’s better off alone with him. In short, Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome onto the stage: Codie Prevost. - Musicshopper.info

CODIE PREVOST AMONG WINNERS OF THE 9TH ANNUAL INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS

(www.independentmusicawards.com)


Saskatchewan, Canada’s Codie Prevost is among a diverse group of independent artists named as Winners of the 9th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMA) headquartered out of Clifton, New Jersey, USA.. Prevost’s single “Spin” from his current album bearing the same title was named the winner in the Country Song of the Year category.



“Spin” written by Codie Prevost and OLE MUSIC PUBLISHING writer, Willie Mack, also garnered tremendous accolade at the 2009 Saskatchewan Country Music Association Awards when “Spin” won for Single of the Year, Song of the Year, as well as Album of the Year. In addition to the awards for single and album, Prevost was also honored with Fans Choice Entertainer of the Year, and Male Vocalist of the Year.

The winners in more than 50 album, song, music video and design categories selected from thousands of submissions from around the globe, were determined by a panel of 80 influential artists and industry pros including Shelby Lynne, Tom Waits, The Black Keys, Ricky Skaggs, Pete Wentz, Mark Hoppus, Aimee Mann, The Apples in Stereo, David Garrett, Suzanne Vega, Bettye LaVette, Judy Collins, Zooey Deschanel, M. Ward and Charlie Musselwhite.

“Spin” will be included in ‘Now Hear This’, the Independent Music Awards Winner CD compilation. Currently in production ‘Now Hear This’ will be serviced to thousands of college, public and commercial radio stations by radio promotion gurus The Planetary Group in early March.

On another Codie Prevost songwriting note, “Quicksand” also from Prevost’s current album SPIN, was recorded by Nashville based Grammy Award winning producer Randy Kohrs for Kohr’s current acoustic CD titled QUICKSAND which recently launched worldwide.

On Friday January 15th Randy debuted “Quicksand” from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry to a packed house including Emmy Lou Harris and Joe Diffie who were also on stage during that performance.

It was Ellen DeGeneres’ birthday on January 26th, and since she's in the middle of her Quest for World Domination, and it was Codie Prevost’s quest to prove “the six degrees of separation between people” theory is correct, Ellen’s loyal fans sent in some birthday greetings from all across the world.

Included on the front page of Ellen’s website is a special birthday song for Ellen, written and sung by Codie Prevost.
