Biography

On September 16, 2008 Peak Records/Concord Music Group released Wayne Brady’s debut album, the appropriately titled - A Long Time Coming. The Emmy Award winner is the consummate entertainer, whose talent truly knows no boundaries. As a stage, screen and live performer Brady is unparalleled.

But now, he turns his attention to his first love: music. The 12-track R’n’B collection features Brady’s own compositions standing side by side with his loving, inspired reinventions of such classics as Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” The Beatles’ “Can’T Buy Me Love” and Stevie Wonder’s “All I Do.”

Brady’s career began as one of the improvisational theater performers in the British version of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, along with Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and host Clive Anderson, to which he became a regular on the American version, hosted by Drew Carey. In 2003, Brady won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety, Musical or Comedy Series for his work on the show, the only person to win the award for a television series, as opposed to a special, since Dana Carvey in 1993.

He went on to star in his own ABC variety show in 2001 called The Wayne Brady Show, which failed, and a daytime talk show of the same name in 2002, which lasted two seasons and won four Daytime Emmy Awards, two of which went to Brady for Outstanding Talk Show Host. Brady also guest-starred on The Drew Carey Show in 1999 and 2000 to take part in Drew Live and Drew Live II. On the show, Brady played several games taken from Whose Line Is It Anyway? for the two episodes with other characters.

    the album was well received critically, but it never really got noticed. was just poorly promoted, needs to release another album and have another shot at it, because the stuff off his first album is good!

    I love his voice. I'm glad that he sings, but too bad it's not popular! He deserves more love!

    sound so weird listening to his songs 'cause i've been watching whose line so much and all he sings there are comedy songs.

    Haven't enjoyed any of his shows since Whose Line, but I've always wanted him to cut a record. Definitely want to hear it.
