Dane Bowers (born 29 November 1979) is an English R&B singer, songwriter, DJ and record producer. He was a part of R&B boyband Another Level between 1997 and 2000 when he performed on seven Top 10 singles. He then went on to perform solo projects, working with Truesteppers and Victoria Beckham and has made TV appearances on Celebrity Big Brother and Celebrity Come Dine With Me.
Dane Leon Bowers was born on 29 November 1979 in Sutton, London, England.
Early music career
When he was fifteen years old - after leaving Trinity School of John Whitgift, Shirley Park - he enrolled at Croydon-based performing arts college, The BRIT School. After leaving, Bowers joined British boy-band Another Level, where he performed as a part of the group for 3 years between 1997 and 2000 with fellow members Mark Baron, Wayne Williams and Bobak Kianoush.
Another Level gained seven Top 10 singles in two years in the United Kingdom, including 1998's UK Number one "Freak Me"; and a platinum selling, self-titled debut album. Their follow-up album, Nexus, released in 1999 achieved a gold selling status and was followed by a Brit Award Nomination for Best British Newcomer  in 1999.
After the group split in 2000, Bowers wrote and fronted two UK Top 10 hits, for the UK garage act Truesteppers in 2000; "Buggin'" and "Out Of Your Mind". "Buggin'" reached number 6 in the UK charts in April 2000. The latter featured the first solo recording of Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham. "Out Of Your Mind" reached number two, as it was beaten to the number one spot by Spiller featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor with "Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)" in August 2000.
In 2001, two solo singles released under the moniker of 'Dane', "Shut Up And Forget About It" (allegedly written about his relationship with Jordan) and "Another Lover", both stalled at number nine on the UK Singles Chart; and an album, 'Facing The Crowd' remained unreleased.
In 2010, Bowers returned to making music and signed with independent record label, Conehead UK to record a pop album, with the first single, 'All She Needs', written by Jamie Scott to be released in July 2010.
In 2004, Bowers wrote and starred in a sitcom pilot called Bow to the Bowers. It was a satirical look at the music industry, casting Bowers as an egotistical, vain version of himself. It also starred former Steps member Lee Latchford-Evans and ex-Brother Beyond star Nathan Moore, though it never made it to mainstream TV.
Bowers appeared in the follow-up TV show to Totally Scott-Lee, called Totally Boyband, in which five boyband members from past groups were modelled into a new singing act called Upper Street. The group featured him alongside Lee Latchford-Evans of Steps, Jimmy Constable of 911, New Kids on the Block's Danny Wood, and S Club's Bradley McIntosh. The series commenced on MTV in the UK in September 2006, but their first single charted at #35 and the group subsequently disbanded.
In 2009, Bowers appeared in an episode of Celebrity Come Dine With Me alongside Bobby Davro, Laila Morse, and Dani Behr,  where he served langoustines, beef tenderloin, and bread and butter pudding. Bowers' theme for the evening was 'funky, cool and fashionable'
The current series of Channel 5's, Big Brother's Bit on the Side, features Bowers making intermittent appearances as a panelist.
Dane Bowers regularly plays DJ sets at established nightclubs and clubbing brands in the UK including Gatecrasher, Sintillate and has performed many sets for the Luminar brand in various parts of the UK.
Dane has also played many DJ sets abroad in Marbella and Tenerife, including the famous Eden and Es Paradis nightclubs, based in Ibiza. Dane also made a PA at the Radio 1 Big Weekend in Ayia Napa at 'The Abyss Club' for 'Twice as Nice' in Ayia Napa in 2001 alongside DJ Luck & MC Neat.
Before joining Another Level, Bowers was engaged to his childhood sweetheart Danielle Morgan. Bowers has a son Kai (born late 1997 / early 1998, Sutton, London) by ex-girlfriend Emma-Jane North.  From 1998 to 2000, Bowers was in a relationship with model Katie Price. A sex tape of them later was uploaded to the Internet.
In 2007, Bowers married his agent Chrissy Johnston in Las Vegas; they separated in May 2009.
