A humorously dark fairy tale of witchcraft, bullying, revenge, and a mysterious bowler hat. Ron Sexsmith takes the visual way with words usually showcased in his award-winning music and brings it to this whimsical yet serious story about a boy who finds out what happens when you kill a dog that belongs to a witch.
Ron Sexsmith is an internationally acclaimed, Juno Award-winning recording artist. He spends most of his time writing songs, touring, and making records. Deer Life was mostly written on the road, during long drives and in dressing rooms and hotel rooms. Ron lives in Stratford, Ontario.
