Ron Sexsmith

Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith will release his thirteenth studio album Carousel One on March 31, 2015. A critical success since his 1995 self-titled debut, Sexsmith has won the admiration of major league songwriters such as Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney along the way. His last album, Forever Endeavour, was borne of a health scare while its predecessor Long Player, Late Bloomer was borne of disillusionment. Carousel One, however, finds Sexsmith in surprising territory for a man often pegged as a downbeat balladeer: he’s actually contented.  He has a website, a Facebook page, a Twitter page and a Youtube page.
