Ron Sexsmith has gained a well-earned reputation as one of Canada's premiere songwriters. The man has a way with words. His talent has gained him such fans as Feist, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, and Blue Rodeo amongst others. He has also won Juno Awards for this very talent. This, plus the fact that he crafts excellent pop songs has led to him quietly building quite a following worldwide.
Despite the fact that the critics have raved over each one of his ten releases his record sales have not matched their enthusiasm. This is due more to the fact that he is not The Jonas Brothers or Justin Timberlake and makes mature pop music for adults rather than big selling teenage oriented pop. He does keep steadily building a fanbase one convert at a time.
Most of his early material fell into the category of melancholic guitar/piano based pop music, but lately he has expanded his sound to include synthesizers and string sections to craft a more pure pop sound.
