The extraordinary singing talent of Adam Brand is beyond question, as evidenced by the numerous awards and trophies he has won. But the most valuable trophy for Brand to date is one that he won not by singing.

Brand signed up for our 2009 Dancing with the Stars reality show. The show, which has won the Television Industry's Logie Award, was launched in 2004 and averaged 2 million viewers a week.

After making it to the 2009 finals of the show, Adam and his partner Jade Hatcher defeated the show favorites Matthew White and Ash-Leigh Hunter. The latter were given a perfect 30 score by the show's judges, but the overwhelming public vote for Adam and Jade determined the outcome. Adam, who candidly admits that he did not expect to win, danced on behalf of the Children's Cancer Institute of Australia. His choice of a charity was inspired by his sister's son, Harry, who succumbed to the disease when he was two and a half years old. As if winning the show's trophy was not enough, Adam went for an ever bigger one and married Jade on May 31st 2010.

Adam, born Adam Alberto Bruno, in Perth, on January 27, 1970, is the son of a travelling salesman. He started playing drums when he was 10 before moving to Sydney in 1977. There, influenced by artists such as Garth Brooks, Bruce Springsteen and Kris Kristofferson, he released his first album which shot up to No. 44 on the ARIA charts earning a Platinum certification. In 1999, Brand was nominated in five States at the Country Music Festival in Tamworth and won three CMAA awards for Song of the Year, New Talent of the Year and Video Track of the Year. In the same year, he won the Johnny O'Keefe Encouragement Award at the Mo Awards.

In 2000, Adam received another Golden Guitar and in 2001 three more for Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year. He also received another Mo Award for Male Country Performer of the Year. In the meantime, Brand continued to add to his list of hit albums with either Gold or Platinum certifications. His highest-charting solo album to date “Blame It On Eve”, released in 2008, climbed to No. 1 of the Australian country charts and No. 10 on the national charts. This was followed the next year by “Hell of a Ride” which climbed to No. 2 on the country charts and No. 19 on the National Album charts.

After winning Dancing with the Stars in 2009, Adam visited Nashville for the first time. He signed up with the Sony Music label Arista for his first single “Ready for Love”.

With his singing success, Adam Brand has certainly much to dance about. He is touring currently with his "THE BRAND WAGON TOUR" - The Brandwagon Tour will sell out fast so get in early to see one of Australia's favourite sons tear up the stage.
