Jeffrey Straker at Lorenzo's Cafe
AUG 12th, SAT ~ JEFFREY STRAKER ~
Singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker performs 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 Chile. His tour stops range from intimate house concerts to club and theatre shows and include recent sold-out concerts with several Canadian symphony orchestras, performing his own songs. 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”.
“Dramatic and melodic, Straker is a throw-back to days when a piano and sincerity ruled…echoes of 60’s & 70’s pop. Choruses soar, piano accents are always impeccable” (Album: North Star Falling)
