One of Canada’s premier singer-songwriters, Ron Hynes has created beautifully crafted signature songs for more than 35 years. His fall 2010 release, Stealing Genius (Borealis/Universal) marks his eighth solo recording and his third project with award-winning producer, Paul Mills. Inspired by works from some of his favorite authors and poets (including Donna Morrisey, Des Walsh, Stan Dragland, Randall Maggs, Al Pittman and Michael Crummey), Ron Hynes has crafted a collection of remarkable songs that not only echo a life in Newfoundland and Labrador, but resonate with people everywhere.
The release of Stealing Genius came hot on the heels of the world premiere of The Man of a Thousand Songs, a feature-length documentary, of which Hynes is both subject and star. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Wm D MacGillivray and co-produced by Terry Greenlaw (Picture Plant) and Jordan Canning (Get Set Films), the film premiered to capacity crowds at the Toronto International Film Festival and subsequently garnered Atlantic Film Festival Awards for Documentary, Director and Audience Favorite. Best known for his folk classic Sonnys Dream, Ron Hynes’ songs have been recorded by artists world-wide including Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Christie Moore, Denny Doherty, Murray McLauchlan, John McDermott, Prairie Oyster, The Cottars, Hayley Westenra and many more.
