TVD Radar: The Podcast with Evan Toth, Episode 90: Ron Sexsmith

The destination is not always the most important place, sometimes it’s the journey that is most impactful. A life’s odyssey really makes us who we are: the roads we’ve traveled, the mistakes we’ve made, and the lessons that we have learned along the way shape and mold us, these passages give us more tools and experiences to simply be better people or at least better at whatever it is we do.

Ron Sexsmith knows this well. In fact, his latest record—coming your way in February 2023—is titled The Vivian Line. The title is taken from a Canadian road leading from one part of Sexsmith’s life to another. His past is full of excellent work and great success, he’s had Rod Stewart, Michael Buble, Feist, and many others perform his music, he’s won several Juno awards, and this newest album will be his 17th.

I’m grateful to have Sexsmith join me to discuss the beautiful songs he’s written for the new record, but we also talk about the unique experiences he’s had since coming onto the scene in the early ’90s, the producers who helped craft his albums along the way, and his loving admirers on Twitter.

But perhaps, most importantly, we capture a very gifted musician in a stage of transmigration. He is talented enough to appreciate the journey he’s been on—the many roads he’s traveled throughout his career—and look at it through a musical perspective and we’re lucky enough to have the opportunity to hear it. Hop in, Ron Sexsmith has the car gassed up and he’s ready to take us on a journey down The Vivian Line.
