Self-deprecating almost to a fault, Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith has been a critical success ever since his self-titled debut back in 1995, winning the admiration of major league songwriters such as Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney along the way. Headlining the Royal Albert Hall in 2013 his career was, he says “given a much needed kick in the pants which I didn't see coming. I thought those days were gone for me, but it definitely reawakened a dormant fan base, especially in the UK.”
2015’s album Carousel One finds Sexsmith in surprising territory for a man often pegged as a downbeat balladeer: he’s actually contented. It is a warm, deeply involving set of songs that showcases his great empathy and occasional sentimentality, but also his often-overlooked playfulness. Although the sound and feel are inspired by ‘70s albums from the likes of Phoebe Snow and Gerry Rafferty, it’s a record that sounds very fresh and modern.

"Pocklington was a surprise package. 200 people, full to capacity, and the knowledge that it could have sold out twice over gave me a good feeling. I cannot remember having more fun in a performance in my whole career. Laugh? I nearly bought the place a round... Two, maybe even three shows next time at that very special venue.
