After two sold out shows back to back at the Media Club last year, Joel Plaskett is back with his full band as Joel Plaskett Emergency.

For those of you discovering this artist later in the game… Joel Plaskett has been playing in bands and making records longer than most of his peers have been shaving. With over ten years’ experience as a professional musician, Joel has had ample opportunity to hone his chops and tour extensively in North America, while still being young enough to enjoy the simple thrill of it.

Plaskett strips down his material to its most sparse and naked, and adds introspection and intimacy to his expressive yet simple songs. The low-quality production gives his recordings a rough, rustic feel, which only adds to its allure. Laced with humor, yearning, regret, apathy, sarcasm, wit, and love, Plaskett's songs are courageous, confident and poignant.
