About the event

RON SEXSMITH

 

A three-time, Juno award winning singer songwriter, Ron Sexsmith is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer-songwriters.

Born in 1964, Ron was drawn to music from an early age by the melodic songs of the era, which he heard on the radio and by his mom’s record collection.

He has collaborated with the likes of Daniel Lanois, Mitchell Froom, Ane Brun, Tchad Blake, and Bob Rock.

His earliest musical heroes were Buddy Holly and Elton John.

Rons songwriting appears on albums from Rod Stewart, Michael Bublé, k.d. lang, Emmylou Harris and Feist.

His inimitable work has drawn praise from the likes of Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello and Chris Martin to name just a few. 

He has been awarded 3 Juno Awards, having been nominated 15 times including eight nods for Songwriter of the Year.

 

 

Rons New Album The Vivian Line is out Feb 17th, 2023

 

The Vivian Line is the 17th album entry in Ron Sexsmith’s compelling discography, one matched by very few contemporary singer/songwriters.

His catalogue has earned him immense peer respect and a loyal international following, and this new release (out on Warner Music Canada/Cooking Vinyl in February 2023) captures Ron at the top of his creative game.

These new songs all flowed from Sexsmith’s fertile musical and lyrical imagination in a short period of 2021 during covid.

“The songs came out of nowhere,” Ron explains. “I wasn’t really writing after the [2020] release of my previous album, Hermitage.

The older I get, the more I think ‘maybe this is it,’ but then I find myself with new ideas again and got excited.”
