Ron Sexsmith - Retriever
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Ron Sexsmith - RetrieverCanadian divas get all the attention these days, but Ron Sexsmith is one of the best songwriters this country has ever produced. On his latest album, Sexsmith proves he’s more than just a tunesmith with a knack for pretty ballads. Featuring sweet vocals and upbeat tempos, songs like the driving “Wishing Wells” take a refreshing pop direction while the r&b-flavored “Whatever it Takes” finds Sexsmith channeling Stevie Wonder. But the best is the string-laden “Tomorrow in Her Eyes,” a song of breathtaking beauty.
