Former Thrush Hermit kingpin and Haligonian alt-rock heartthrob, who presents songs from the Joel Plaskett Emergency's great new Truthfully Truthfully (MapleMusic) disc tonight (Thursday, November 20) and at a second all-ages performance Saturday afternoon (November 22) at Lee's Palace, and at an in-store gig at Soundscapes Saturday at noon.
JJ Cale , Okie "The only record I've ever listened to that made me seriously consider smoking copious amounts of weed. I've Got The Same Old Blues is possibly the heaviest song ever."
ZZ top , Tejas "Doesn't get as much attention as Tres Hombres or Eliminator, but they're at the height of their powers on this one. Snappie Kakkie sounds like the Meters in Texas."
the constantines, Shine A Light "Their show at the 2002 Halifax Pop Explosion was one of my favourites of the past few years, and the record lives up to it. Great songwriting, powerful dynamics and killer vocals.... What more do you need?"
