After some solo work as well as time with a band called Thrush Hermit native Nova Scotian, Joel Plaskett, hooked up with a band called Emergency. That was back in 2001 and they have continued working together off and on since. His work with Emergency was Plaskett’s first real taste of commercial success. Over their 14 years together they have earned Juno nominations, Polaris Music Prize, East Coast Music Awards, and nominations for the Independent Music Awards. All in all they have released one DVD/EP, four full-length albums and a B-side/compilation collection.
Joel Plaskett is a musician with many different sides. With Emergency he has the opportunity to satisfy that guitar rock itch. It is a sound that has evolved from alt-country to classic rock and on to folk rock.
This tour has the catchy name of The Park Avenue Sobriety Test, which is also the name of Plaskett’s latest album.
