The who, what, where, why and how of the record are best explained by Ron himself: “The
Vivian Line is a rural route right near where we live in Stratford (Ontario). Whenever we have
to get out of the city we jump on The Vivian Line and it dumps us out onto the highway. I
wondered about the name when we first moved there and thought it was intriguing… it sort
of represents escaping from our old life in Toronto to this new phase we’re in. And it’s also
like a portal to my old life when I have to get back there.
I recorded it (The Vivian Line) with Brad Jones in Nashville. (Brad played bass on 3 of my
earlier records “Other Songs”, “Whereabouts” and “Blue Boy”) and it’s a very lush sounding
almost baroque pop record. (a distant cousin of “Whereabouts). The songs were mostly
inspired by this stage in life that I find myself in and trying to figure it all out.”
Ron Sexsmith is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer-songwriters. Born and bred in St
Catherine’s near Niagara Falls and currently resident in Stratford, Ontario, he has released 16
