I’ve ordered this. Has to be one of the most unknown greats in music today. Seen him a few times and never disappoints.


Hes got an excellent guest spot of the Humanist album (songwriter/producer Rob Marshall), along with Mark Lanegan, Dave Gahan, Mark Gardener (Ride) etc. Check out the album. Its excellent.


I ordered the pink vinyl version from Ron’s website a few weeks ago and I’m really looking forward to it.

I think Ron would appreciate the lack of response to this post, it would raise a smile I’m sure.

Here’s hoping he will be able to tour this in the UK as he had planned, always a joy to see/hear live, go see him if you can.

Any other guys that come to mind, if only to generate a few more comments on the ron post,seen a film on him on the telly a few years ago thought he was very good.


There was an entire summer in which every Sunday I listened to Ron Sexsmith’s self-titled CD and The Blue Nile’s ‘Peace At Last’ CD as I was reading the newspaper while sitting on a porch beside a creek in rural western Michigan. Some of the most tranquil memories of my life!

And today there are posts about both artists. Guess I’m set for this summer!
Thanks Paul!
