Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases the talented, singer/songwriter, Ron Sexsmith, with his song, “Tell Me Again,” from his album, Blue Boy.  This album was released in 2001; he’s made seven albums since, with the latest being, Long Player Late Bloomers.  Songs from those albums will be featured in future articles on The Troubadour’s Road.

The Canadian musician is quoted as saying, ““A lot of my friends go to therapy, but my family is reserved and I can’t imagine telling all my troubles to some stranger. I’m lucky that I have the outlet of songwriting. Though in songs you sometimes tiptoe around things so as not to hurt people’s feelings, writing songs is very therapeutic for me. I would vote for songwriting over therapy!”

His ‘therapy’ produces some incredible work, and he’s an artist to continue to follow as he makes his way down the troubadour’s road.

These words find there place in his song, “Tell Me Again,”

“Please tell me again, I was somewhere else
Lost, walking in the rain looking for myself
For somehow I find myself missing
Please tell me again
Blue flowers on the hill where’s my valentine
I’m leaning on the sill waiting for a sign
And if I promise to listen
Please tell me again

Please tell me again, I’ve forgotten all
The wind told us when you and I were small
For there must be something missing
Please tell me again
Tell me again, tell me again …”

For updates, tour dates, and other news click on his website, you can get his music here, and follow him on his Facebook Page.  Sexsmith has tour dates in Ontario through October.  The US awaits his next tour here.    Until the next time you’ll be able to see him, or until the next time you’ll be able to listen to him, here is Ron Sexsmith, with his song, “Tell Me Again,” enjoy,
