Joel Plaskett Emergency are playing 5 shows at Toronto’s legendary Horseshoe Tavern in December to be part of their 65th anniversary celebration. The dates are Dec 12-16 with Sunday Dec 16 being an all-ages show. We are very excited for these shows and it will be an amazing way to wrap a busy year of touring. Tickets go on sale to the public on Oct. 4 at Ticketmaster, Rotate This, Soundscapes or the ’Shoe itself.
I just got home from a stellar tour of BC, AB and SK and Mo Kenney was opening all the shows. I produced her debut self-titled record, which was released last week. I’m really proud of the work we did on the record and she will be opening our upcoming Ontario dates. Here is a video link to the CBC session Mo and I did a couple weeks ago. She even does a version of my song, Somewhere Else which I like more when she sings it! You can also get the whole record on iTunes, here.
In other recording news, I’ve been busy wrapping a few projects and building a new studio. The last song I produced at the old Scotland Yard is a sweet, soulful duet by Molly Thomason and Carleton Stone. It’s being released tomorrow as a single and you can check it out, here.
The old Scotland Yard is no more and the New Scotland Yard is under construction. Below is a creepy photo of me cleaning up the dust in the new space.
Excited to get back to some more recording in the new year. Until then, on the road again…
