All Kinds Of Crazy
I love to review indie artists. It’s like a box of chocolates - you never know what you are going to get. I lucked up and got a potential mover from indie to mainstream. He COULD be the next the big thing.
Codie Prevost is a multi-award winning & four time Canadian Country Music Association nominee that released his 4th studio album, “All Kinds of Crazy” in spring of this year. He also has co-penned the eight songs. Since then he has received dozens of rave reviews and mine is going to be one of them. I just want to touch on a few of them to give the consumer an insight on a wonderful and talent country artist from Canada.
Codie’s CD “All Kinds Of Crazy” holds a eight pack of meaty packed – country songs. The latest single, “Someday” is a tried and true blessing from the songwriter to the artist as he delivers it with heart and soul. The song tells of real life experiences through difficult times that there is a brighter day coming soon.
The first song out of the speakers is “I’ll Be Your Whiskey” sounds like it was written by an award winning songwriter, straight out the series Nashville. The lyrics tell of him comparing his love (as Whiskey) that can take the away bad and comfort you in your time of need. [One of my favorites from the songwriting side of things].
“Say My Name’ is a rocking song with a sprinkle of pop infusion. That’s ok because he brings the audience attention totally to the music. His power-yielding vocal strength and control is evident throughout the album. I would hope they consider this for an up tempo summer release. Another up tempo that is a hard – hitting very hooky words - that led you to believe that some under cover loving is just a glass away.
This song is for the ladies. “Last Night All Day” is a perfect dedication to the girl who has his mind all day and his body all night. What a visual. When a songwriter (He is co-writer) can write so you see a picture. He has done his job.
If Codie ever decides he rather be writing. Music Row would welcome him with open arms. Come on down! Visit him at www.codieprevost.com
The album creative team must recognize: Expertise Produced by Tom McKillip, and was recorded in Vancouver, BC. Good Spirit Records is the indie label for release.
