Dwayne Ferris
: Since I was a little boy watching my dad sing and yodel some good old Wilf Carter songs, I have had a love for music. Computers and widgets are not my thing and my passion is to write songs and sing them. The song Memories Of Dad took me an hour to write just after my dad’s funeral but I never sang it in public until very recently.  I like to sing my songs and hope they touch someone’s hearts, give them some comfort, bring back memories of happy days and just enjoy them.
