Randall Prescott played in his father’s band at the Lafontaine Hotel Golden Rail. He then joined the Wayne Rostad Band, followed by the popular Prescott Brothers. In 1984 Randall joined The Family Brown. Tracey, Barry & Randall later released two CD’s with Sony Canada as Prescott-Brown. Tracey also released two solo CDs.
Randall was voted CCMA Country Music Producer of the Year an unprecedented 10 times in a row. He was also nominated for a Grammy Award for work with Robbie Robertson. Juno’s and three Instrumentalist of the Year awards are also among his list of achievements.
