When Doug Ferony sings, his warm voice, high musicianship,  enthusiasm, and sincerity make the music he performs infectious and  joyful, even when he is interpreting a touching ballad. It is always  obvious that he loves timeless standards and has the voice and phrasing  to make them sound fresh and relevant. While he makes no secret of his  love for the singing of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin and  Bobby Darin, he does not feel compelled to merely copy his predecessors  and instead displays a sound of his own within the tradition of  first-class singing.


His career has included a variety of accomplishments. "When I was very  young," remembers Doug, "my parents played Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams,  Tony Bennett and Dean Martin records around the house, in addition to  Rosemary Clooney and Ella Fitzgerald. I remember being very impressed by  Frank Sinatra at an early age."


Inspired by Buddy Rich growing up, Doug started playing the drums. However by the time he was in high  school, he knew that he wanted to pursue a career in singing.


In 1985, Doug Ferony moved to Los Angeles where he studied voice with  Howard Austin, and started gigging. He also went to acting school and  began working in films. Through the years he has appeared in many major  motion pictures including Back To School, GoodFellas, Spiderman II, and The Brave One in addition to such television series as Law & Order and The Sopranos. But singing before audiences has been his main love.  Doug spent much of the 1990s in New York and fondly remembers performing  three nights a week with a trio at the World Trade Center during  1995-96, singing regularly at the Supper Club with his big band, and  with a piano duo at Tavern On The Green. Doug currently performs all  over the country including at supper clubs, casinos, racetracks, cruises  and concerts, and he recently worked a show at the Paramount Center for  the Arts with veteran singer Al Martino. Some of Doug's performances  include the Westchester Country Club, Empire City/Yonkers Raceway, the  C-Note Jazz Club, The Arthur Ashe US Open, and on the Las Vegas Strip at  the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino.


Doug has many popular recordings such as "I'm In Love With A Girl" (title track featured in the film, MR. VINCENT), "This One's For You,"  "Time After Time," "It's Christmas," "I Ain't Got You," and "America's Greatest  Songs." 


"LOVERS is intimate and thoughtful," says Doug. "I wanted this to  be a nice easy-listening candle-lit romantic CD. I've recorded a lot of  uptempo swing in the past so this is a change of pace. What I enjoy most about standards and swing is that I can understand  and relate to the lyrics. I pride myself in doing justice to lyrics and I try to bring a lot of passion and fun to the music." 


"Doug Ferony  succeeds on all levels throughout LOVERS, making the classic songs and  vintage lyrics sound as if they were written specifically for him to  communicate to today's listeners."
