| ||Juno Award winner and critically acclaimed Singer Songwriter Ron Sexsmith and John McDermott got together for the first time during the recording of the ‘Images At Christmas’ album in the fall of 2005. Ron had contributed the song “Maybe This Christmas” and things just took off from there. John approached Ron about possibly getting a list of songs he had written that he thought might be perfect for John … the results can be heard ‘On A Whim’. |
This recording, also co-produced by Ron & John, contains 12 penned Ron Sexsmith written in a sort of crooning style which perfectly fit John’s unique vocal trademark style. With stellar musicians including Brigham Phillips, Jason Fowler, Phil Dwyer and Mark Kelso to complement the lyrics, the results are memorable!

Ron received great press yesterday in the Montreal Daily newspaper...front page story and large picture in the Arts and Life section! Story is behind the cut. ON a more personal notes I was surprised to read him say ""Robert had a kid the same age as mine,..." I did not know he had a kid?!?!? I knew he lived with a woman but never knew he had a kid.

I know this sounds kinda lame, but as I reached down for my small bundle of Ron Sexsmith CDs, to remind me of which of his albums is probably the best - in order to attempt to advise sweetsangria81, I remembered that I've actually met the guy, and I'd forgotten about it. How bad's that? It must've been the heavy drinking that weekend!

I'm a new listener of Ron Sexsmith ... actually, I don't even have any of his albums! However, I saw him play with Sarah Slean at the beginning of the year and I was just blown away with his performance - he has such a beautiful voice!
Does anyone have any recommendations for a first time listener? Also, I was hoping (and feel free to yell at me if this is against the rules!) that someone could share an MP3 with me of 'Maybe This Christmas'? I've been making a mix CD for work and I think Ron would be quite appropriate!
Current Mood: sleepy

Hello all. I just joined this community and thought I'd say hi to everyone. My name's Joe and I'm originally from Chicago but going to school in Marquette, MI. I have to say I was quite surprised and pleased to find a community devoted to Ron, as he has become one of my favorite artists over the past few years. He's got to be one of the most talented songwriters I've ever heard.

|amyhatch2001||01:31 pm - Anyone going to the zoo Concert?|
Hey, I'm just wondering if anyone in this community is in the GTA/Ontario area and is going to the Ron Sexsmith concert at the zoo on Thursday?
I'm going with a friend of mine, she's not really into him, but didn't want me to go alone.. That was nice of her..
But I was wondering, if anyone is going, did you want to meet up somewhere before the show? That would be cool :)
