Ron Sexsmith: Sweet Love Songs

Ron Sexsmith
Ron Sexsmith

A Toronto-based singer-songwriter with an international following and an arsenal of sweet love songs, Ron Sexsmith has seen his songs covered by everyone from Mary Black to Rod Stewart to Nick Lowe. Though far from a household name, Sexsmith has won over a laundry list of massively famous musicians, including Paul McCartney, Elton John, Elvis Costello, Steve Earle (who produced his 2001 album Blue Boy), Sheryl Crow, Bono, John Prine, Radiohead, and Coldplay's Chris Martin (who lends vocals to the Sexsmith song "Gold in Them Hills").

Armed with a passion to keep writing better songs, Sexsmith just released a fine new album titled Time Being. The disc's producer, Mitchell Froom, has worked with Elvis Costello, Crowded House, Suzanne Vega, McCartney and more, while playing a pivotal role in Sexsmith's career, producing three of his early albums.
