Dean Ormsby Torrence (born March 10, 1940).

Surf City was the first surf song to become a national number-one hit. This, and many other surf songs mention a woodie which was a 1930s station wagon with wood trimmings which were all the rage in 1950s and early 60s California beach culture. Brian Wilson gave the unfinished song to Jan Berry who finished it, recorded it and watched it surf the wave to a number one which made Murry Wilson fume. Brian Wilson later told Teen Beat Magazine, "I was proud of the fact that another group had had a number 1 track with a song I had written ... But dad would hear none of it. ... He called Jan a 'record pirate'."

The band Thee Deuces was originally formed in 1964 in Almonte south-west of Ottawa as an instrumental group who performed for nearly a full year at Inter-Provincial Hotel in Hull, Quebec as the house band.
By the summer of 1967, the band decided to update their name - The Heart - and their sound by adding former Luke & The Apostles keyboardist Peter Jermyn. But Jermyn would leave again in 1968 to form The Modern Rock Quartet with former Esquires members Doug Orr and Robert Coulthart. The Heart then recruited Corbin and Arseneault from The Five D for one more single called "Yesterday Was a Dream" on RCA at Christmas that year. The act lasted only until the Spring of 1969.
Sir John A Records - Named after Canada's first Prime Minister, was a label that existed for less than 2 years. Formed to celebrate Canada's centennial year in 1967 by local Ottawa personality John Pozer and musician/artist Ron Greene - the label tapped into some of the Ottawa area's hottest up and coming bands. The records issued on the label were very limited pressings of 100 - 500 quantities.

From the Montreal and Ottawa area. Did a number of mostly folksong albums from the early 1960s till about the end of the decade. Had a following in various pockets of the USA and even did some recording down there. This song isn’t indicative of what they’re usually like on record – unfortunately.
