Three-time Juno award winner Ron Sexsmith releases his new album, The Last Rider today.  This, Ron’s thirteenth studio recording was co-produced at The Bathouse Studios in Kingston, Ontario by longtime drummer and collaborator Don Kerr and Sexsmith. The album is his first self-produced album and the first to include Ron’s touring band.  A fun-loving animated video for the single “Radio” was launched today.  Featuring likenesses of Ron and his bandmates, the clip was created by Ron’s guitarist Kevin Lacroix.



“At this point, it’s just second nature for me to write short, melodic songs that say everything I want to say,” says Sexsmith. “But having my band totally involved on this album maybe brought out more in the songs than on other recent albums. It felt special, anyway.”


In addition to album release, Ron and his band begin their 17-date Canadian tour today with a show at Meaford Hall in Meaford, Ontario.  Every concert ticket purchased for Ron Sexsmith’s The Last Rider tour will include a digital copy of his new album The Last Rider.  Immediately following the Canadian run Ron heads to the UK for 10 dates in England and Ireland.   See Canadian tour dates below.


Since making his major-label debut in 1995, Ron Sexsmith has become recognized worldwide as one of Canada’s most renowned songwriters.  He counts among his fans Elvis Costello, Elton John and Paul McCartney and has amassed no less than eight Juno Award nominations as Songwriter of the Year.
