Codie Prevost has just signed a deal with Ceol Entertainment in Australia. Now whenever Prevost ventures to the land down under, Ceol will represent Prevost and his career. Prevost recently finished his first Australian tour, during which time he released his first Australian single “All Kinds of Crazy.” The song debuted at #14 on the most downloaded songs list in Australia, Ceol Entertainment is now working hard to get Prevost’s music to new country music fans in Australia and New Zealand and book his next Australian tour.
Ryan Anderson, of Anderson Productions set up Prevost’s first Australian tour, which put Prevost on the Southern map and got him introduced to the team at Ceol Entertainment. 15 shows in 18 days is a lot of work for anybody, but Prevost and his crew rocked them all, including the Toyota Main Stage at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
“I am thrilled to be working with Ceol Entertainment in Australia and New Zealand. It is an opportunity to spread my music to country music fans in a new part of the world and expand my career. From the moment I walked into Ceol’s office in Brisbane I was so impressed with the positivity and support shown by the whole team. I know working together we will achieve many goals!” Says Prevost.
Ceol is an entertainment company with global reach. They represent a large family of talented musicians, and they are excited to add Prevost to their roster. According to their website, “Recently we have extended our reach by opening a full time office in Melbourne and maintaining a presence in Nashville, USA. We have since created partnerships with International companies and artists allowing us now to provide opportunities on an International level for Australian artists in addition to international artist down under.
“We are looking forward to delivering Codie’s music and show down here. We never went out to sign a Canadian artist but from the first listen of his music and his live shows there was no question we wanted to work with him. His current album is one of the best balanced albums by an independent artist I’ve heard in a long time and its apparent live why Codie has won consecutive “Entertainer Of The Year” awards back home” said Ceol’s director Matt McCormick.
Jamie Santilli the company’s artist business manager said “Aussie fans have a natural attraction to Codie, he’s down to earth approachable and amazingly talented. I’m excited to have him on board”

Leap Of Faith Garners Huge Rewards For Prevost


By Alison Squires

What started out as an idea shared between former schoolmates ended in a tour of a lifetime and the beginning of a new relationship with fans on the other side of the world.

So it was for Saskatchewan’s country music sweetheart Codie Prevost and his industrious good friend Ryan Anderson, formerly of the Fosston area and now a resident of Australia, who took a leap of faith to participate in one of the world’s largest country music festivals in Australia.

In an interview last Tuesday with Prevost, reflecting on the experience from his home in Warman, he said he had just mentioned it to Anderson and it went from there. “I had talked to Ryan about it, suggesting that as he has his own company for DJing, maybe it was something we could try, and six, eight months later I was there (in Australia).” “It was a busy trip, but worthwhile,” said Prevost, who worked on building his fan base, releasing a song and gaining the experience of working with another company.

“The people there are awesome,” said Prevost. “There is such a country music following and if they really like you, they will follow you to the next show. By the end of the tour, it was like you were all family. It was incredible to see that kind of support.”

As for Anderson, the gamble of bringing Prevost across the ocean paid off. “Codie’s Australian debut went extremely well,” stated Anderson in an email to the News. “I have always been very proud of his achievements in his music career. I was excited and honoured the day Codie asked me to help him out with his idea of expanding his music across the world to Australia.”

Anderson managed to book Prevost for a whirlwind tour of 15 shows in 18 days, including the Toyota Country Music Festival held in Tamworth, Australia. “Seeing Codie Prevost and his Australian supporting band, Hurricane Fall, play on the main stage two times during the festival — that was a huge achievement for me!” According to Anderson, the 10-day Tamworth festival draws about 50,000 people and is touted as one of the world’s top 10 music festivals.

While he was there, Prevost released his first Australian radio single All Kinds of Crazy, said Anderson. “In its first week, it debuted in the top 20 most downloaded songs in Australia,” said Anderson of Australia’s initial reception to Prevost. “The single was also released in New Zealand and Europe and the music video was sent to CMC, which is the Country Music Television channel in Australia.”

“As an artist,” said Prevost, “it was incredible to see that kind of support. It was a little overwhelming, but they seem to really love music.”

Prevost said there are still a lot of CD stores in Australia, whereas here in Canada the stores are disappearing because downloading music online is becoming the norm. Having never been to Australia, his fans surprised him. Anderson recalled a time when he and Codie were walking down a street in Tamworth. “This fan came up to Codie and said ‘Excuse me, are you Codie Prevost? I have been listening to your music for years!” While Codie was signing his autograph, the fan said, “I’m sorry, but I am just a little starstruck.” Said Anderson, “Australia loved this small town showman.

His new fans are patiently awaiting his return here again.”
The whole experience has the two friends planning for an encore visit as soon as August. As a relative newlywed and brand new father, Prevost hopes to take the family along for possibly his third visit next January. As for taking the big leap, Prevost was pretty positive over the results.

“You just don’t really know what’s out there until you get out and see,” he said. Wise words for such a young man.

Codie Prevost Gets “All Kinds Of Crazy” With The Southern Hemisphere And Europe

CANADIAN country artist CODIE PREVOST, unleashes his high energy single “ALL KINDS OF CRAZY” on radio across Australia, New Zealand, and Europe today. The video that already boasts more than 300,000 views online will also be sent to CMC (Country Music Channel) Australia, FREE TV Australia, Foxtel Australia and other music video stations.

The party song will have country fans up and dancing from the first listen. The music video features Prevost first as a park ranger who gets kidnapped by “bigfoot’s” and is forced to teach them to play music, Prevost then gives them a shot by taking them to the city and putting them on the big stage. With the fun party vibe that both the track and clip have, it’s sure to be a hit with country fans.

Prevost is currently in Tamworth, New South Wales Australia for his first Tamworth Country Music Festival. This country music lovers’ festival lasts for 10 days, and is counted among the ten music festivals in the world and is the largest music festival for any genre in the Southern Hemisphere. Tamworth is the second biggest country music festival in the world after the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. In his first few days in Tamworth, Prevost has already played to new audiences who are lapping up his style of Canadian country music.

Prevost says, “It’s been an incredible experience performing in Australia. The people are so kind and make you feel right at home. The weather is beautiful everyday and people are always out to have a good time. I feel very fortunate to be able to perform music to the country music fans here!”

The visit to Australia, coinciding with the single and album release Down Under, has been so successful that Prevost is already planning his return in six to eight months –the long trip from one side of the world to the other is no match for his determination to make new fans around the globe.

Hey everyone,

Well it’s hard to believe that September’s already here. This year has flown by so fast.

Codie Prevost Abducted by Bigfoot!



For Immediate Release: Good Spirit Records

Codie Prevost was abducted by an army of large hairy beasts and forced to play songs in the wilderness. At least that is what happened in his shiny new “All Kinds of Crazy” music video.

“This was one of the most memorable video shoots I have ever been on,” exclaimed Prevost. “I ordered the costumes from the USA about a week before filming and had them shipped to my house. Thankfully they arrived on time and were the perfect size for the band.”

Early in the video, Prevost can be seen happily traipsing through the woods dressed as a park ranger working for “Sask Watch”. In an early scene Bigfoot can be seen scuttling across an opening behind him.

“It was filmed at my cabin I built near my hometown. We were hoping to do something outside the lines and a little crazy, and I feel we achieved that with the “All Kinds of Crazy” video” explained Prevost.

Prevost searches for Bigfoot through the window of his cabin. It was at that point where he was stealthily abducted.

“Funny thing is no one had any problems with dressing up like Bigfoot, and we had a lot of laughs” said Prevost. “The makeup took about an hour and a half for each person.”

After the kidnapper’s real intentions are exposed, Prevost ends up playing a concert with the band of Bigfoot.

The video was Directed by Liam Richards of Electric Umbrella and edited by Matt Smith of Sica Films. The band of Bigfoot in the video is Prevost’s real band including Al Leblanc on the bass, Todd Peters shredding on the lead guitar, and Hal Schrenk keeping the beat on drums.

Prevost gives special thanks to the owner of Outlaws Country Rock Bar, Dan Flemming; first cameraman, Derek Mortensen; makeup artist, Chelsea Kapiniak; wardrobe artist, Keeley Kapiniak; set manager, Brock Andrews; camera, Alan Yuen; and logo designer, Bryan Larson.
