Joel Plaskett delivers another visual for his latest project 44, watch the live off the floor video for the album’s last song, “A Benefit 4 Dreamland.” Shot at his studio New Scotland Yard in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, the performance features guests: Rose Cousins, Ana Egge, Mo Kenney, Erin Costelo, Reeny Smith, Mahalia Smith, Micah Smith, Asa Brosius, Benn Ross, Chris Pennell, Ian McGettgan & Bob Hoag.


Recorded pre-pandemic while people could safely congregate in big groups, Joel reflects on the making of the song and session saying, “Just over a year ago I was on the home stretch of finishing 44. This is the recording of the project’s last song, “A Benefit 4 Dreamland,” filmed on Sunday, November 17, 2019. 

“It was an amazing experience recording this song live off the floor into a single microphone (Bob Hoag’s old RCA 44 that he brought up from Arizona for the occasion). So many great musicians and friends in the room as you’ll see when you watch.”
