Sexsmith's first album for the Ironwroks label (headed up by actor Keifer Sutherland and songwriter Jude Cole) is very accessible and warm, and is not as tempo-challenged as many of his previous efforts. Plus, several of the tunes - "Hands Of Time," "Never Give Up," "All In Good Time" - are downright catchy. Time Being is nearly perfectly constructed by long-time producer Mitchell Froom. The lyrical content seems to veer towards aging and the inherent wisdom that goes along with that inevitable process. Other standout tunes include "Snow Angel" and the McCartney-esque "Ship Of Fools."
Sexsmith plays XPN's "Free At Noon" concert this Friday January 12 at 12 Noon from World Cafe Live.
