Borealis recording artist Ron Hynes has created beautifully crafted signature songs for more than 35 years. With eight solo albums and numerous collaborative projects to his credit, Ron Hynes is a six-time East Coast Music Award winner, a Genie Award winner, a past JUNO, CCMA and Canadian Folk Music Award nominee and recipient of the SOCAN National Achievement Award for songwriting career success.


Ron�s latest release, Stealing Genius marks 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. Nominated for both Album of the Year and Solo Recording of the Year at the upcoming 2012 East Coast Music Awards, Stealing Genius was described by veteran music journalist/broadcaster Mike Regenstreif, as �the finest set of original songwriting to be released in Canada this year.� (Folk Roots/Folk Branches)

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 William 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 garnered Atlantic Film Festival awards for Documentary, Director and Audience Favorite.

Best known for his folk classic Sonny�s Dream, haunting chronicle Atlantic Blue, heart-wrenching requiem Godspeed and a string of country radio hits including Cryer�s Paradise, Man of a Thousand Songs, No Kathleen and Roy Orbison Came On, Ron�s songs have been recorded by artists world-wide including Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Christy Moore, Denny Doherty, Murray McLauchlan, John McDermott, The Cottars, Hayley Westenra, Kim Stockwood and many more.

�Ron Hynes is a grand voyeur in this rough, sweet life, a melody writer of the first order, a story teller, a philosopher, a poet and a kick-ass performer that makes my hair stand on end.� Donna Morrisey, author What They Wanted
