Producer Credits

Joel Plaskett has been producing his own award-winning records since 1999. He applied his producer skills to one of his favourite young band’s debut recording, Two Hours Traffic, and went on to produce another two records for the group, including their Polaris Music Prize short-listed Little Jabs. Since then, Joel has spent more and more time producing other artists, including David Myles’ award-winning album Turn Time Off, Sarah Slean’s Land off her critically-acclaimed Land & Sea release, an EP with Old Man Luedecke titled I Never Sang Before I Met You, newcomer Mo Kenney’s internationally acclaimed debut self-titled record, as well as her multiple award-winning sophomore release In My Dreams, and James Hill’s 2015 Juno Nominated CD/LP The Old Silo.
From 2009 to 2012, Joel produced and released a limited edition of 12, 7” vinyl single series featuring artists Peter Elkas, Ana Egge, Jeremy Fisher, Yellow Jacket Avenger, Tyler Messick, Matthew Grimson, Myles Deck & The Fuzz, Ben Gunning, and Shotgun Jimmie. In addition to his multiple award wins for his self-produced recordings, Joel won Producer of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards, 2014 and 2015 Music Nova Scotia Awards, and the 2015 and 2016 ECMAs.
