Album Notes
Dwayne Ford Biography

Dwayne Ford was born in Edmonton, Alberta on October 7th, 1949 to American parents. Dwayne has dual nationality and regards that distinction as his most valuable.
At the age of five, he began piano lessons, and has been a professional musician since the age of 16. Dwayne Ford is a talented and accomplished composer and musician who has written, performed and recorded with some of the music industry's biggest names including David Foster, the band ‘TOTO’, Donovan, and countless producers and musicians.
Dwayne has won awards from The American Song festival, The Tokyo Music Festival, and six awards from SOCAN. A founding member of the band Atkinson, Danko and Ford (which would become Bearfoot), Dwayne recorded five albums for CBS, producing the last one himself. (it is now a collector’s item thanks to the names appearing on the album). “Bearfoot” was nominated for a JUNO award, and shortly thereafter Dwayne arranged and co-produced a million selling record called “From New York to L.A.” for Canadian songstress Patsy Gallant.
From 1987 to June of 2001, Dwayne was living and performing in southern California. He then moved back to Edmonton, declared Alberta residency, and built a new recording facility with a view toward film scoring and music composition. He is currently writing songs for his next project.

Shimmering Soft Rock with a classic touch
With a relaxed yet soulful voice, perfectly suited to his original Adult Contemporary songs, Dwayne Ford’s new CD, “On the Other Side,” is a smooth blend of Soft Rock & pop influences delivered with fitting and understated polish. Befitting a music veteran with such an accomplished resume (he has worked with the likes of David Foster, Toto & Donovan, among others), the award-winning singer-songwriter’s gift for melody and crafting meaningful lyrics is front and center on this 8-song collection. “East Side Girls,” with its female chorus, has a classic jazzy sound reminiscent of Steely Dan, while title-track, “On the Other Side,” shimmers with an ethereal vibe that’s both grounded and other-worldly. CD-opener “Please Don’t Say You Care,” with caressing strings and engaging hook, plays to Ford’s strengths as a singer, while the final tune, “Who Did You Do To Us,” with its more insistent rhythm and gorgeous organ fills, simply leaves you wanting more. Mixed between arresting melodies from beginning to end, two instrumentals showcase a stellar studio band, as well as spotlighting Ford’s arranging prowess. An album that’s ultra radio-friendly – in a good way, Dwayne Ford’s “On the Other Side” CD is sure to please Adult Contemporary & Easy Listening listeners.
