A Wayward Word's Worth

Joel Addicted to Writing

Filed under: Uncategorized — kylelawrence @ 3:56 am

Joel Plaskett said he relished in reaping the rewards of his headlining spots at this year’s Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival “” the prestige, the spastic crowds, the chance to rub shoulders with national legends and local up-and-comers alike. But the singer-songwriter said he’d almost rather focus on sewing the seeds for new songs, despite releasing a triple solo album earlier this year.

“My mind won’t let me go to sleep at night until I exhaust it, which usually means I write,” he said the day after his Harvest set with his band, The Emergency. “I guess I’m a bit of a workaholic.”

That addiction may be a blessing to his fans, but he said it will by no means lead to another album any time soon.
