At 56, Canadas foremost well-heeled troubadour has made a most unlikely discovery: domestic bliss. All it took, it turns out, was leaving the city he loved.

Following 30 years as an emblem of Torontos west end, Ron Sexsmith reluctantly uprooted to the serene hamlet of Stratford, Ontario, and the melodic, playful, theatrically vivacious Hermitage came gushing out.

Almost immediately after arriving here I just felt this kind of enormous stress cloud evaporate and all these songs started coming, recalls Sexsmith. Id walk along the river every day into town and feel like Huckleberry Finn or something. It had a really great effect on my overall state of being.

This new zen can be heard from the first moments of Kinks-esque album opener, Spring of the Following Year, as the serene sound of birds situate the listener into Sexsmiths state of grace.
