JEFFERY STRAKER (BIO)
Singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker performs over 100 shows per year across Canada. He’s recorded for CBC radio’s ‘Canada Live’, had a music video chart in the top 10 on Much More Music and has toured internationally playing pianos in places as far away as Mexico, Chile and Peru. His folk-pop hooks and rootsy story-telling have been featured in Film, TV, and theatrical productions while he maintains a touring schedule in venues ranging from house concerts to theatres and festivals, including shows with symphony orchestras. Jeffery was the winner of the Vina Del Mar International Song Competition in Chile in 2014 representing Canada where he earned a Latin American fan following performing to the live audience of 20,000 music fans as well as the nightly TV audience of 150,000,000 viewers around the Spanish speaking world. Originally from small town Saskatchewan, the classically trained pianist was raised by a church organist mother and an auctioneer father. He swears he was born under the piano on the family farm.
On his new album, Dirt Road Confessional (May 2017), Straker continues to push the boundaries of what it means to be a piano balladeer. With themes both contemplative and joyous, the 12-song collection encapsulates the seasoned singer/songwriter’s experiences of playing over 200 shows around the world since the release of his previous album. The new recording launched at #5 on the iTunes singer songwriter charts. Straker regularly draws comparisons to Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson as well as a young Billy Joel or Elton John but on Dirt Road Confessional his personal storytelling style stands out distinctly as his own. The album has been finding favour with both critics and fans alike.

"traces of some of the best piano-based singer-songwriters of the past 40 years, couched in his inimitable and effervescent style of folk-alt/pop influences” Calgary Herald

“His lyrics are thought provoking and profound… Straker’s piano playing is superb.
