Adam would like to dedicate this record to the loving memory of Joshua Dufrane. We miss you. Thank you Naomi for everything you have done for me and all your support. Thanks to the two biggest inspirations and supporters I could ever ask for, mom & dad, without you I could never have come this far, my sister Katelyn and my brother Christian, I love you both. Josh, for teaching me how to play an axe, Cale for teaching me how to play a left-handed axe, Nathan and Maryann A.K.A. Sister Mary Flan and, for all you’ve put up with and all you’ve done for me. From Norwood to Peterborough, to Stouffville to Markham to Toronto, there are so many friends of mine who have helped me get to where I am. Unfortunately, there is not enough room on this sleeve to name everyone, but you know who you are. Thank you so much. And to you, the one who bought this record and have bothered to read this far. Thanks.
Thanks to my mother, Carole, there’s no way I could’ve done it without you…I miss you. Thank you Janin, I owe everything to you. To my family, for keeping me sane in crazy times – Shawn, Cheryl, Tyler, Chantal, Alyssa, Darren, Doug, Janet, Rob, Richie, Joan, Gerry, Jason, Justin, thank you all! To Adam and Brad, my extended family. To my music teacher, Murray Carr for showing me where my passion lies. Mark Fletcher, you were a “big brother” to me. Thanks to Dallas Lehigh and his family, for putting up with hours of bad after-school jams, Trevor McNevan, for your encouragement, Dan B., Jason H., Don B., Jake M., Copsy, Toad and Corey, Jeff I. and anyone else I forgot (I’m pretty forgetful) …thank you! I’ve dedicated this to the memory of my parents and my brother, Darryl.
Rhonda for always being there for me. My parents: Lou & Karol who have believed in me 100% from day one. My brother Matt (‘the man with the riffs’) for always finding a way to make me laugh. Bob, Sue, Angela and Ashley for your support. Adz and Neil for bringing me into this crazy world of Rock ‘n’ Roll. K.J., Boone, Juice, Shona, Al and Paula for being my family next door. Jeremy Young and the G-Brown Boyz. All my Norwood Crew and Iggstockers for always supporting the cause…G-swell 4EVR. And thanks to Mo and The Cottage Life/Explore crew for their encouragement and wild parties.
I dedicate this album to my late Grandma Allan.
