The Junction, Cambridge, Nov 8
ON arriving at the show, my only knowledge of Ron Sexsmith was one particularly poppy and jangly track from a couple of years ago and many glowing recommendations.
So - would he redeem my faith in believing anything anyone says about music? Well, yes.
I will be listening to his beautiful and intricate songs for many years to come.
You may also want to watch:
He has a strong, but humble presence on stage and resembled Roy Orbison both physically and times vocally. There's an sense of sadness, of careful craftsmanship and simple honesty to his songs.
Gold In Them Hills stood out even among his magnificent collection of songs. And through God Loves Everyone the room was hushed reverentially in three minutes silence. Snow Angel from his new album Time Being brought the night to a perfectly delicate and melodic conclusion.
