Joel Plaskett Emergency

One of the most prominent figures in the Canadian music scene, Joel Plaskett Emergency have been blazing trails for nearly 20 years. The East Coast boys dropped by the studios to perform 'You're Mine' from their latest LP, 'Scrappy Happiness.' In case you missed it, we'll take care of that for you:

This Halifax trio, comprised of drummer Dave Marsh, Chris Pennell on bass and the namesake on lead vocals and guitar, are hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed solo album 'Three.' With their unique blend of East-coast preach and gritty riffs, the melodic rock on their latest album 'Scrappy Happiness' recalls their earlier records and proves to be yet another fine testament from one of Canada's great songwriters.
