~ Person


Joel Plaskett (born April 18, 1975) is a Canadian rock musician originally from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. He first rose to prominence as a member of Halifax alternative rock band Thrush Hermit in the 1990s, transforming himself through the first decade of the 21st century from an admired regional musician to a "nationally adored" icon. Plaskett is comfortable playing in an eclectic array of genres, from blues and folk to hard rock, country, and pop.

Plaskett is based in Dartmouth, and his songwriting frequently contains allusions to his home city. With his band The Emergency, he has toured throughout North America and Europe with such performers as The Tragically Hip, Sloan and Kathleen Edwards.
