Jeffery Straker tours over 100 shows across Canada, Europe and Latin America each year. He's recorded for CBC Radio's Canada Live, had a music video in the top 10 in Canada, and has had his music used in TV shows, commercials, movies and theatrical productions. His tour stops range from intimate house concerts to club & theatre shows and include recent sold-out performances of his songs with symphony orchestras. Critical comparisons have been made to the likes of Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joel, & Harry Chapin 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 album "Dirt Road Confessional" (May 2017) debuted at #5 on the iTunes Canada singer-songwriter charts, and received airplay on both CBC radio 1 and 2 as well as college and community radio across the country. In October of this year Jeffery performs with the full Saskatoon Symphony at TCU Place in Saskatoon, and November sees his debut at Canada’s National Arts Centre in Ottawa.
"Some of my favourite memories of Christmas-times growing up were having neighbours over to our farm house with instruments in hand, playing and singing songs until all hours of the morning. I hope to bring a bit of that wonderful musical spontaneity and variety to the show lounge stage with some talented special guests joining me in this show".
