Ron (Ronald) Eldon Sexsmith Born, 8 January 1964 (age 54), St. Catharines, Ontario. (Vocals, guitar, piano) Ron has not had some of the huge commercial success (he may have liked) shared by many other Canadian artists, but I think he has made a decent living. He has received accolades from other musicians who appreciate his work including Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Chris Martin, Elton John, Ray Davies, Steve Earle, Bob Rock, and Sheryl Crow. At least 35 of his songs have been covered and I’ve enjoyed his music for some years now, though his melancholy sound I find is best in smaller doses. “ Secret Heart ” written by Ron Sexsmith (1995) and cover at least 10 times Rod Stewart (1998), Feist in 2004 and my favourite version of this song, Trevor Exeter with a great Youtube cover (2016) Ron Sexsmith (Feat. Chris Martin) “ Gold In Them Hills ” (2004), cover by Katie Melua in 2012 Tegan and Sara are identical twins born September 19, 1980,
