Best Canadian Solo Male

Joel Plaskett

“I really am flattered to be given these honours again this year,” says Plaskett, writing from Melbourne, Australia, after midnight. “I feel very fortunate to have the support of the community back home and I don’t want to take it for granted. The Maritimes sure celebrate their own. Lucky me!” We expect to see Mr. Humble all over the poll next year, too, when his much-anticipated concept record Ashtray Rock drops on April 17. He adds, “These awards may be for the solo artist Joel Plaskett, but I don’t feel like a solo artist most of the time and I want to share this attention with the Emergency: Dave Marsh and Chris Pennell. Anyone who has seen the band knows how much they have to do with the shows and the tunes.”

1st runner-up: Final Fantasy, 2nd runner-up: Matt Mays
