Ron Sexsmith / Brooke Waggoner

Event Date: 
Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 8:00pm

Ron Sexsmith is a singer-songwriter with insight into the human heart and a melodic purity that is unheard since the heyday of Paul McCartney. You’ll find him straight after the Sex Pistols in any self-respecting encyclopedia of modern music. He's created a body of work that very few recording artists, living or dead, can match for consistent sky-high quality. Sexsmith’s new album Forever Endeavor, is his 13th album. The songs show him at midlife reflecting on the passage of time. The New York Daily News says, “For nearly two decades, Sexsmith has served as pop’s most believable optimist. In his jewel-like folk-pop songs, he constantly brings us to the brink of despair only to assert, in just that awful moment, the unending endurance of possibility.” Sexsmith is two-time recipient of Canada’s prestigious Juno Awards.

Brooke Waggoner and Chad Howat (Paper Route) reunited to work on Waggoner’s latest LP entitled Originator. The two joined forces with Dan Brigham (Canon Blue), who brought the production to another level. After numerous cups of coffee, late nights spent exchanging notes and emails, and geeking out over Talk Talk records, Originator was recorded in an old-fashioned and traditional manner. With vintage gear and 2" tape, new friends and old friends somehow found their way into Waggoner’s music. The album has already gained a following with her recent single “Rumble,” which nearly generated 50,000 views on YouTube. In the midst of her upcoming release, Waggoner has been busy touring for Jack White’s Blunderbuss album.
