Canadian singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker performs over 100 shows per year. He’s recorded for CBC radio’s ‘Canada Live’, and has toured internationally playing pianos in places such as Mexico, Chile and The Netherlands.
Performances range from house concerts to theatres and festivals, and collaborations with symphony orchestras while film, TV, and theatrical productions have also showcased his work.
Jeffery was the winner of the Vina Del Mar International Song Competition (Chile) in 2014 representing Canada where he earned a Latin American fan following performing to a live audience of 20,000 as well aTV audience of 150,000,000 viewers around the Spanish speaking world.
His 2017 album, Dirt Road Confessional, reached #5 on the iTunes Canada singer-songwriter chart and saw over 200 performances. The 12-song collection has been played on CBC Radio 1 and 2 and has been featured on several CBCmusic streams. Straker regularly draws comparisons to Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson as well as a young Billy Joel or Elton John, but his personal storytelling style stands out distinctly as his own.
That storytelling style is evident on the first single from his forthcoming 2020 album. “One Foot on Main Street” (Sept 2019) is a nod to the small town life he experienced growing up on the Canadian prairies. Evolving from his past folk-pop recordings, the song hints at the “roots” flavour the new album will present.
