When he played this at the gig on Saturday I bawled my eyes out. Absolutely love this track. Brilliant in its simplicity the lyric is fantastic. At 76 years old this guy can still write with relevance and deliver with meaning. His harmonies even at this age are top drawer.
Loved his last few albums. A class act. Glad you enjoyed it Lawrie.
Ron Sexsmith had one notable hit with ‘Secret Heart’ and then seemingly disappeared from the media, but he kept on turning out albums of well-crafted tracks in his melodic style, and some of the greats of the industry were queuing up to work with him. I can definitely and often see echoes in his songwriting with early Elvis Costello and also Ray Davies. For me, a very underrated artist.
I love his voice!
Best fan-made video I’ve ever seen. Brilliant.
When you’ve heard a sticky, sticky, sticky, melody on the radio in the morning, and it follows you all day long…
Was just going to post this myself. You beat me to it.
