Canada strikes again. Joel Plaskett, recording variously solo projects or with his band Joel Plaskett Emergency, is something of an undiscovered gem to UK audiences. Back home he has a string of awards to his name and is acclaimed as one of their finest songwriters. His eclectic blend of styles, as showcased on most recent release ‘Three‘, has given him a broad appeal and there’s plenty to please anybody with an ear for a good tune.
‘Three‘, as the name hints at, is a triple disc effort. In the UK a single CD summary entitled ‘Three To One‘ is available, which serves as a perfect introduction to Joel’s work.
