Dean Brody's newest album 'Crop Circles' was released on November 5.

Country star Dean Brody’s newest album Crop Circles was released on November 5. This is the fourth album for the 38-year-old Jaffray raised country music star. Brody won male artist of the year in 2012 and 2013 at the Canadian Country Music Association awards.

Known for his story telling and emotional song lyrics, Crop Circles’ first single Bounty is in true Western fashion; Brody’s voice as alluring as the tale he sings.

While Brody is busy launching his new album and getting ready for his cross-country tour starting in January, he has another project on the go.

Leilah’s Song is one song you won’t find on Brody’s newest album.

Brody and his wife Iris started The Dean Brody Foundation in 2010 to help in the rescue and prevention of young girls exploited in child prostitution and human trafficking in Brazil and around the world. Years ago, he promised himself that if he were to become successful, he would use his profile as an artist to do something to help others – specifically, young children at risk of human trafficking and child prostitution. The Foundation’s mandate is to provide a place of safety and refuge where girls can receive counseling, rehabilitation, hope, healing, and when possible – justice.

Brody’s fans have been engaged by his talent to reflect on emotional life circumstances in writing; Brody has brought that to the Foundation. Brody wrote Leilah’s Song after his trip to Brazil in January 2011 where he spoke with child prostitutes, including Leilah. His protective lyrics paint the picture of a heartbreakingly true story of a delicate little girl, Leilah, working as a child prostitute on the infamous highway BR 116 in Brazil.

“With a young daughter of my own, I tried to be tough but when I got back to my hotel room, I broke down and cried like a baby, ” said Brody.

“I still think about Leilah all the time I find myself looking at the clock at night and wondering where she’s at, (she’s only a time zone away), and then I think about my daughter Molly and how she’s safe in her bed and how she will get to be a kid and grow up and do what little girls should be doing. And that really is what this project is all about. Giving girls a chance to be girls.”

Brody’s songwriting talent is what makes him one of the best country musicians currently in Canada. Add his beautiful voice with an acoustic guitar and he draws out emotions so the rest of us are moved to grab our dance partners or fall apart in tears. How he manages to keep singing those words without falling apart is a talent in itself.

Brody will be taking his Crop Circles and Tractor Beams tour across the country in January. He will be playing concerts in Calgary, Lethbridge and Cranbrook in mid February.
