From rocking Halifax’s Marquee Club to performing for the masses at Massey Hall or touring the country with his father, Joel Plaskett has forged a reputation as one of Canada’s most engaging performers and respected singer-songwriters.

Plaskett’s songs are a perennial part of the national playlist, a fixture on “best of” lists, and the soundtrack to the lives of faithful fans across the country and around the world. His accolades over a quarter century include a Juno, numerous East Coast Music, Canadian Folk and Music Nova Scotia awards, and two Polaris short list nominations.

Plaskett began his musical career in the early 1990s as a member of alt-rock favorites Thrush Hermit, recruiting lifelong fans as the band toured North America in a half-size school bus, setting up their signature neon ROCK & ROLL sign from show to show.

In the early 2000s, Plaskett started touring under his own name with his band, The Emergency (featuring Dave Marsh on drums since 1999, and for the last 14 years, Chris Pennell on bass). Backed by the Emergency and racking up a growing roster of anthemic singalongs, Plaskett worked his way up from small clubs to opening for Paul McCartney and the Tragically Hip and filling larger venues with his own devoted audience.

Plaskett is a versatile and ever-evolving artist, at turns delivering intimate and idiosyncratic singer-songwriter fare (In Need of Medical Attention, La De Da, The Park Avenue Sobriety Test); incendiary riff-rock (Down at the Khyber, Truthfully, Truthfully), left-leaning folk rock (Solidarity), as well as conceptual epics and off-kilter feats of musical stamina (Ashtray Rock, Three, Scrappy Happiness, 44).

Recorded to analog tape, Plaskett’s records reflect his attention to detail, his dedication to technique, musical history and craft, and a sincere and inimitable lyrical style that runs through his diverse and ever-expanding catalogue.

In addition to producing most of his own records since 1999, Plaskett has also set up shop behind the console at his New Scotland Yard studio in downtown Dartmouth, N.S. His work with artists like Jimmy Rankin, Two Hours Traffic, David Myles, Sarah Slean, Shotgun Jimmie, Dennis Ellsworth, Old Man Luedecke, Dave Marsh, Colleen Brown and longtime collaborator Mo Kenney has led to numerous awards for production and turned New Scotland Yard into a popular destination for artists looking to develop and document their sound.

In front of the studio is The New Scotland Yard Emporium, where Plaskett has partnered with Halifax mainstay Taz Records to bring a curated selection of records to his adopted hometown, providing a spot where music fans can congregate to grab a coffee or beer while they dig for records.

In a world increasingly connected—and disconnected — by digital mediums, Joel Plaskett prefers to make his connections the old-fashioned way, building community at his studio and shop, dedicating himself to the art and authenticity of songwriting and analog recording processes, and moving audiences with the electrifying, uplifting experience of live performance.

In all aspects of his work, Plaskett embraces both the communal and individual experiences music provides. The ways music and words combine to connect with the listener, turning a minute into a moment out of time, reminding us that we aren’t alone.

Includes Fees & Charges

Ron Sexsmith is a three time Juno award winning songwriter from Canada. He has written and recorded seventeen acclaimed albums of original songs beginning with his self titled debut in 1995 up to his most recent ‘The Vivian Line’ in 2023.

Ron has toured the world many times over performing in such prestigious venues as Massey Hall, Carnegie Hall and London’s Royal Albert Hall.

A child of melody, his music has been described as a hybrid of Canadian folk heroes such as Gordon Lightfoot and Leonard Cohen mingled with that of The Kinks, Beatles and other British invasion acts of his formative years.

His songs have been covered by many revered artists such as Rod Stewart, kd Lang, Emmylou Harris, Michael Buble, Feist and Elvis Costello to name only a few.

“Sexsmith is a (Canadian) songwriter with a gift for an instantly seductive pop/folk/rock melody, a facile way with a lyrical narrative and the ability to produce really charming and sometimes deeply poignant turns-of-phrase” - THE CINCH REVIEW

“When Sexsmith sings, he rarely places a note squarely on the beat. He eases into it a little ahead of time, or hesitates and lets it drift in late like a wallflower trying to slip into a party unnoticed” - John Pareles THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Melody remains the convulsive life-giving heart.You lose that, a tune withers facedown. Ron Sexsmith understands this point better than most every singer/songwriter working today” - Jason Killingsworth PASTE

“Sexsmith has an incredible gift for pop melodies, and his voice is an unassuming croon that slides up and down to notes with graceful ease. He also just doesn't strum the guitar, he makes it sing. In short, he's an endangered species” - Marshall York SALON

Good Lovelies "We Will Never Be the Same" Tour

Good Lovelies "We Will Never Be the Same" Tour

24 11 8 Good Lovelies Poster 500B

$44.00 Per Person
Including fees & taxes

Reflecting on the richness of life, and the wide-ranging spectrum of emotions that surface from moment to moment is the spiritual focus of the latest, Juno-nominated album from one of Canada’s most accomplished and harmonious trios – Good Lovelies.

Musically, Juno nominated We Will Never Be the Same hearkens back to the band’s acoustic, rootsy beginnings 17 years ago. Lyrically, the songs created by the Juno Award-winning ensemble of Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore and Caroline Marie Brooks are as compelling as the dynamic and engaging vocal harmonies for which the group is known as they mine the complex feelings experienced by women who have come to ponder some of the big questions of life.

The resulting collection of songs strikes a tone of hopefulness, steadfastness, and perseverance, even when enduring moments of tribulation and even despair. Songs such as Young at Heart, Tip to Toe and Keep Moving bring to bear the sometimes-conflicting emotions encountered on each songwriter’s personal life journey but expressed in ways that have profound meaning for anyone listening to them.

It is an admirable and desirable addition to their widely acclaimed musical catalogue which already includes four full-length studio albums, two enchanting Christmas releases, three EPs, and a live album. We Will Never Be the Same was crafted during a time when the Good Lovelies could not tour, which has been a staple of their careers, bringing them to concert venues throughout Canada and the U.S. as well as to the stages around the globe from the U.K. and Europe to Australia.

Much of the writing for We Will Never Be the Same took place during a productive and illuminating retreat in rural Nova Scotia, working closely with the production team of Joshua Van Tassel and Christine Bougie (who also both performed on the album) resulting in one of the most collaborative albums in the band’s tenure.

The heaviness of some of the subject matter is more than overshadowed by the exquisite beauty of the compositions and the stellar, powerfully deep and resonant vocal performances that elevate not only the tone, but the hearts and spirits of the listener.

We Will Never Be the Same is both a return to a more elemental, acoustic-based musical platform reaching back to the early days of the Good Lovelies, as well as an immersive emotional experience crafted by three songwriters who bring their own real-life stories in all their dynamism and messy complexity to the fore.

It is a testament not only to their artistry, but also their humanity, and is an album that will continue to endear this beloved group to fans of all ages.

$42.00 Per Person
Including Fees & Taxes

Vancouver soul dynamo Dawn Pemberton has a deep musical foundation rooted in tradition. Dawn spent her formative years surrounded by a family of multi–instrumentalists and developed a true love of music as a young girl. In addition to regularly collaborating on the projects of her peers and having an educated background in jazz voice and piano, Dawn is a talented and passionate songwriter in her own right. A staple of the West Coast music scene, Dawn can be found tearing it up as a vocalist, arranger, and go-to for live performances and studio sessions.

Dawn is heavily influenced by rhythm. She is drawn to the percolating under current of soul–jazz and funk which is infused in everything that she does: "I’ve got a rhythmic stream running through me at all times. It’s all about the groove for me." On leadoff single ‘Deeper’ soulful grooves meet swirling organs, punchy horns, and tight drum breaks that pay homage to Dawn’s roots in gospel but update the sound with a feel all her own.
