In a world of workaday singer-songwriters mired in vacuous self-regard, news of a new Ron Sexsmith record can only gladden the heart of those who care about deftly poetic, gently affecting songs that perfectly distil the pitfalls of being human. Especially when that record pairs him again with the producer whom, for two decades, has framed his music in its most sympathetic surroundings.
A new Ron Sexsmith original song ‘She Does My Heart Good’ is now available as a free download from the Ron Sexsmith official website.The beautifully realised simple love song was one of the first to be written for Ron’s new Mitchell Froom produced album ‘Forever Endeavour’ which is released here in Ireland on February 1st 2013 via Cooking Vinyl.
Ron Sexsmith states: “It’s pretty much a straight-up love song about the wonderful effect another person can have on your mental state.”
Forever Endeavour is Ron Sexsmith’s 12th studio album and features another batch of deftly poetic, gently affecting songs that perfectly distil the pitfalls of being human. Ron Sexsmith comes from the land that gave the world Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot and Rufus Wainwright. He’s the definition of a ‘songwriters’ songwriter’ – Elton John once said that Ron Sexsmith has the voice of an angel, Chris Martin even duetted with him on ‘Gold In Them Hills’, Nick Hornby named a book after one of his songs, Bruce Springsteen used his version of the American classic ‘Comrade Fill No Glass For Me’ as warm-up music on tour, Elvis Costello loves his work and has toured with him on several occasions, and Bob Dylan has played his music on his celebrated Radio Hour show.
Many stars have also covered Ron Sexsmith songs including the likes of artists such as Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Elvis Costello and most recently Michael Bublé, whose multi-platinum album ‘Crazy Love’ features a duet with Ron on his song ‘Whatever It Takes’.
