First and foremost, I would like to dedicate this album to my family and friends. To my loving wife Anita, to my wonderful children and their families. And to my incredible friends. You have all been an important part of my musical family. Keep up the good work!
This album is also dedicated to my uncle Harry Sulley who inspired me to begin playing guitar in the first place. He was always more of a super big brother than an uncle for me. Harry was a member of NL's best Du-Wop group, The Four Jays. The Four Jays won a spot in a National competition and competed for Top Honors in Ottawa, where they won second place, losing to a group called The Staccatos. The Staccatos later became known as Les Emerson and the Five Man Electrical Band. Yay Harry!
I would also like to dedicate this album to an incredibly good friend of mine who left this world suddenly two years ago, Mr. Wayne Hynes. Wayne was born in NL and began playing drums at 13 years old. In the late 1990's, Wayne became better known as a Songwriter and spent most of his free time in his studio creating and recording his music, plus playing drums. Wayne and I had been friends since we were late teens and, like me, he lived in Nova Scotia for quite some time. While he was here, we spent a lot of musical time together. Fortunately, I was able to salvage some of that work for this recording. Wayne is featured playing drums on "Coupe DeVille" and "Canadian Boy"!
