Best Male Solo Artist

Gold Winner Joel Plaskett

Silver Winner Adam Baldwin

Bronze Winner Classified

“I’m so happy,” Joel Plaskett says of his three gold Best of wins this year. Although he does a lot of work on his own, the long-time local favourite is reluctant to take all the credit. “I’m really mindful of the fact that my band The Emergency has been a huge part of my records—a bunch of them—but also my ability to go out and deliver the songs live in a rock ’n’ roll context.” Maybe your favourite male solo artist really is a team player: Not only have bandmates Dave Marsh and Chris Pennell played a lot with him over the years, but currently Plaskett is working on a record with his father.
