Canadian singer-songwriter RON SEXSMITH is a lot like his mother country -- chronically and criminally underappreciated.
Now, it's certainly true: The guy ain't flashy. His melodies and arrangements tend to be simple and straightforward. Uncluttered. "Workmanlike," one might say. Others have said: "Earnest." "Melancholic." And PAUL McCARTNEY and ELVIS COSTELLO -- two guys who tend to know a thing or three about melodies and arrangements -- have said that Sexsmith is an exemplary tunesmith.
And that's plenty good enough for me.
