Jeffery Straker @Charslanding
Sat, Apr 21st, 8-10pm, Concert Jeffery Straker Singer-Songwriter-Pianist Folk-Roots-Pop
Honest story songs combined with striking piano/vocal abilities.
Echoes of Kris Kristofferson/Billy Joel/Harry Chapin.
Top 10 on iTunes Canada singer-songwriter chart.
Originally from small town Saskatchewan, the classically trained pianist was raised by a church organist mother and auctioneer father. He swears he was born under the piano on the family farm. All this might explain his incredible ability to share songs with audiences. Jeffery is a musical descendant of Beethoven through teacher-student lineage (see his website for the full story). He was a student of the Royal Conservatory of Music and received his licentiate diploma in piano performance from Trinity College, London when he was just 19. Jeffery has showcased at major events including Canadian Music Week, NXNE, the Western Canadian Music Awards, & JunoFest as well as countless festivals. Hes licensed songs for TV, film and theatrical use and has appeared on television several times.
Strakers CD has 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
This great work belongs on the shelf beside the finer recordings of Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, & Elton John
