Ron Sexsmith / Brooke Waggoner
Ron Sexsmith is a singer-songwriter with insight into the human heart and a melodic purity that is unheard since the heyday of Paul McCartney. You’ll find him straight after the Sex Pistols in any self-respecting encyclopedia of modern music. He's created a body of work that very few recording artists, living or dead, can match for consistent sky-high quality. Sexsmith’s new album Forever Endeavor, is his 13th album. The songs show him at midlife reflecting on the passage of time. The New York Daily News says, “For nearly two decades, Sexsmith has served as pop’s most believable optimist. In his jewel-like folk-pop songs, he constantly brings us to the brink of despair only to assert, in just that awful moment, the unending endurance of possibility.” Sexsmith is two-time recipient of Canada’s prestigious Juno Awards.
