Sexsmith Hitches For Last Rider Tour

Three-time Juno award winner Ron Sexsmith has today revealed details about his new album, The Last Rider.  Scheduled for release on Friday, April 21, 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 album to include Ron’s touring band.


“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 details, Ron has also today announced the dates for his upcoming Canadian tour. Every concert ticket purchased for Ron Sexsmith’s The Last Rider tour will include a digital copy of his new album The Last Rider.  Beginning today, fans who purchase concert tickets or pre-order The Last Rider from iTunes or on CD/LP from Ron’s Official Store prior to the album’s April 21 release, will receive five new songs instantly including the single “Radio”. See tour dates below.


Spotify users can Pre-Save The Last Rider and it will automatically be added to their Spotify collection upon release.


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.
