il talentuoso cantautore canadese torna con

The Last Rider”,

il nuovo album in uscita il 21 aprile 2017 per Cooking Vinyl/Edel



Ron Sexsmith torna con “The Last Rider”, il nuovo album in uscita il 21 aprile per Cooking Vinyl/Edel. 15 nuovi brani per il talentuoso cantautore canadese, che, con il nuovo disco, spazia da canzoni allegre e spiritose a melodie tristi, romantiche, sdolcinate e spirituali. A differenza dei precedenti lavori, “The Last Rider” è stato registrato ai Bathouse Studio (Lago di Ontario, Canada) da Sexsmith e dalla band che lo segue in tour da anni: Don Kerr (batteria), Jason Mercer (basso), Dave Matheson (tastiere) and Kevin Lacroix (chitarra). Prodotto da Ron and Don Kerr, amici e collaboratori sin dagli anni ottanta, “The Last Rider” è un album pieno di aspettative! 

 “I think my sound has always been a combination of the folk singers and British invasion artists I’ve always admired,” says Ron. “At this point, it’s just second nature for me to write short, melodic songs that say everything you want to say. 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.” – Ron Sexsmith
