Singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker performs over 100 shows per year across Canada. He has recorded for CBC radio’s “Canada Live”, had a music video chart in the top 10 on Much More Music Canada and has toured internationally as far as Ghana Africa and Peru. His tour stops range from intimate house concerts to club and theater shows and include recent sold-out concerts with the Regina Symphony and Saskatoon Symphony Orchestras. His latest career boost came from winning the prestigious Vina del Mar (Chile) song competition in February 2014 where he represented Canada.
Jeffery and his piano-folk-pop music are often compared to a mixture of early Elton John, Ben Folds, Sarah Slean, Billy Joel and Harry Chapin. Straker launches his new collection of songs in March 2015. The 12-song album “North Star Falling” was produced by Dean Drouillard (Royal Wood, Justin Rutledge) and weaves a new sound around Straker’s songwriter-piano-pop. Electric guitars, horns & strings as well as acoustic guitar and banjo help set the stage.
“Straker was simply spectacular… clearly one of the province’s best cultural exports”
