This album is dedicated to my family.  Especially Shirley, Dayna, Christopher and Mum and Dad.

 

 

These tracks have been written and recorded over the last thirty years.  I would like to thank the many musicians and many wonderful people who have helped me over my lifetime.  In particular, my dad Terry Ransome and my uncle Ray Chaston who were my earliest influences and inspirations, and my wife Shirley, Ross Donald, Alan McKay, Alex Lowe, Bill Sinclair, Ian Brown, James Fettes and Don Harvey.  They have all helped me to become all that I am.
