    GET INTO THE MUSIC! Often compared to an early Elton John, Billy Joel, Sarah Slean and Harry Chapin, singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker and his piano-folk-pop music perform 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 Peru, Mexico and Ghana. His tour stops range from intimate house concerts to club and theatre shows and include recent sold-out concerts with Canadian symphony orchestras in Saskatoon, Regina and Sudbury. The review following his orchestral debut read: “Straker was simply spectacular…clearly one of the province’s best cultural exports”. Canadian Musician Magazine has said, “Very much an artist to watch” while the Chicago Free Press has written, “Rufus Wainwright, as well as k.d. lang are among the Canadians making essential and beautiful music. Add the name Jeffery Straker to that list”. His latest career boost came from winning the prestigious Vina del Mar (Chile) song competition in February 2014 where he represented Canada. Performing live to a festival crowd of 20,000 people and to a TV audience of 100,000,000 viewers across the Spanish speaking world he quickly gained a fan following putting him in demand for performances in Latin America original song: BIRCHBACK CANOE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAdrh6-vJlo cover song: LANDSLIDE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oi6y92wk9Y0 Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/1676896555926591/
