Women’s Resources of Kawartha Lakes presents: Dean Brody — March 14, 2020 – 7:30 p.m. – Academy Theatre Lindsay Annual Marquee Event Fundraiser It is Women’s Resources 10th Anniversary Year for the Marquee Event and we are thrilled to be bringing our first Country Artist to the Academy Theatre – and what a Country Artist we have! Dean Brody — recipient of 16 Canadian Country Music Awards , 2 Juno Awards and a number of other prestigious awards. His songwriting skills and his deep, pure vocal style has ultimately rocketed him to “country music superstar” status. Brody has certainly worked hard for this status. After a 2 year contract in Nashville, he came back to Canada, still hoping for the break he needed to move forward in the music industry. It came in the form of a call from Matt Rovey (now long-time producer and friend) and a record deal! Since then his platinum career includes 3 top ten hits and 6 albums, all wildly popular. Brody’s innate ability to tell stories with genuine feeling, as is demonstrated with the authentic “Dirt Road Scholar” and “Undone”, is what keeps him on top. “Bring Down the House”, considered a risk. reached gold after 8 weeks and earned the CMT title and award for number one selling digital Canadian country single of all-time and is certified Double Platinum. A humanitarian, Dean Brody created the Dean Brody Foundation to rescue and prevent young girls being exploited in child prostitution and human trafficking in Brazil and around the world. This aligns so well with the work Women’s Resources does with victims of human trafficking – many seeking safety and support at Victoria’s Shelter. His upcoming acoustic show at The Academy Theatre will be compelling and intimate, showcasing Brody’s depth as a songwriter and his ability to bring storytelling to the forefront of country music. Women’s Resources of Kawartha Lakes is a charitable organization providing programs and services throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes and surrounding area to ensure that abused women and their children can get the help they need to lead lives free of abuse and violence.
