With his puppy dog eyes and barrel-aged voice, Canadian country singer Dean Brody joins an ever-growing number of artists putting Canada right smack in the middle of country music's map. A consummate performer, Brody's charming personality makes his live shows a friendly affair characterized by audience interaction and personal stories outlining the inspiration behind his songs. Brody made even the smallest venues feel like outsized arenas at his 2013 tour dates, firing up audiences with electrifying sets that are sure to satisfy more crowds in 2014.
Born and raised in British Columbia, Brody worked in a sawmill as a boy, honing his guitar chops in his spare time. In 2004, he moved to Nashville to pursue music, working as a songwriter for several years before releasing his debut single "Brothers" in 2008. His self-titled debut album would follow in 2009, garnering him attention with US country audiences and setting the stage for 2010 sophomore album Trail in Life, which earned him five nominations at the 2011 Canadian Country Music Awards. After selling out his first headlining tour in 2012, Brody returned to the studio to record 2013's Crop Circles, which scored him his first No. 1 hit with "Bounty."
