Dane Bowers 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 True steppers and Victoria Beckham and has made TV appearances on Celebrity Big Brother and the celebrity version of Come Dine With Me.

After leaving the BRIT School, Bowers joined British boy-band Another Level, where he performed as a part of the group for three 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 gold-selling status, and was followed by a Brit Award nomination for Best British Newcomer in 1999. Another Level also performed as the supporting act on the European leg of Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope World Tour in 1998. After the group split in 2000, Bowers wrote and fronted two UK Top 10 hits, for the UK garage act True steppers in 2000; "Buggin'" and "Out of Your Mind". "Buggin'" reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart 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. Bowers began television presenting in 2002, co-hosting Popstars: The Rivals "Extra" show with the former Pop Idol contestant, Hayley Evetts.

In 2004, Bowers wrote and starred in a TV 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.
