âIâve always been a singer… always.â says Wayne Brady, who has been known widely for his appearances on comedic shows such as âWhose Line Is It Anywayâ and âThe Chappelle Show,â but this fall Brady officially moves over to music with âA Long Time Comingââ his debut album. Bradyâs 12 track R&B collection features his own compositions inspired reinventions of such classics as Sam Cookeâs âA Change is Gonna Come,â The Beatlesâ âCanât Buy Me Loveâ and Stevie Wonderâs âAll I Do.â âI always thought that Wayne Brady was an amazingly talented performer with an incredible voice,â says Andi Howard, president of Peak Records. âWhen asked by his producers if I would be interested in signing him as an artist to Peak my response was an emphatic, yes. Not only did he deliver a fabulous album, but an album that is extremely heartfelt and exceeded all expectations. It was indeed âA Long Time Coming.ââ Brady linked with The Heavyweights, the superstar production team composed of Jack Kugell, Jamie Jones and Jason Pennock, to write and record the album. The Heavyweightsâ productions have sold more than 28 million albums and include work with such superstars as Jim Brickman, Martina McBride and Destinyâs Child. First single, âOrdinary,â is a mid-tempo burner that pays tribute to the glorious simplicity found in every day life and love. Penned by the Heavyweights, Sarah Nagourney and Welford B. Walton II, the song is enhanced by Bradyâs nuanced, soulful delivery. Wayne Bradyâs âA Long Time Comingâ hits stores and online retailers September 16th.
