Jeffery Straker was born on a Saskatchewan grain farm with 2 TV channels and a party-line telephone. He graduated in a class of 9 and learned Cree as a second language in school as a kid.
He’s a prairie guy who ‘played ice hockey but really just wanted to spend more time playing the piano’.
Since those early days he's gone on to perform over 100 shows per year across Canada and around the world with 7 album releases to his credit. A clever lyricist with a rootsy storytelling style, his energetic piano-based song writing is a reminder of the power of the classic singer/songwriters accompanying themselves on the keyboard. Critics have drawn comparisons to Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson, Carole King & Billy Joel.
Straker's 2017 album “Dirt Road Confessional” debuted at #5 on the iTunes Canada singer-songwriter charts and saw him tour over 200 shows across Canada, Europe and Latin America – from the Netherlands to Nunavut – including a debut at Canada’s National Arts Centre. In recent years he’s licensed songs for film, TV and theatrical use and has performed his music in sold-out concerts with symphony orchestras. In 2019 he won a Western Canadian Music Award and 2020 saw him named 'Roots/Folk Artist of the Year' in the Saskatchewan Music Awards. “Ready to be Brave” is the latest single from his upcoming (May 2021) full-length album, with previously released singles from the recording including "Morning Light", “Light a Fire” and “One Foot on Main Street”.
