Artesian on 13th


Jeffery Straker CD Release Concert

Join singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker as he launches his new studio recording "Dirt Road Confessional".

Jeffery grew up listening to country music on the farm where he grew up in rural Saskatchewan. At the same time he was studying and enjoying classical piano music – eventually playing full sonatas and concertos by composers like Beethoven and Grieg. And while doing that he was a sucker for a good pop song with a great hook, as well as the poetry and word-smithing of Joni Mitchell. Fast forward to this album. The singer-musician and road warrior (touring 100+ shows a year) has created a recording that sounds like his influences. Lyrically the album speaks to the tug between life on the road pursuing a dream of music and the longing for love. It takes the listener into the dusty corners, through it's dynamic yet cohesive range.

“My hope with the songs on the album is that while expressing what I want to express musically, that I’m providing listeners with a mix of catchy sing-able songs they can grab melodically, but also tunes that grab them lyrically and make them sit back and think”.

The Concert on Thursday, June 8th has SOLD OUT! But friends, Jeffery has added a 2nd show on FRIDAY, JUNE 9th and Tickets are on sale now! Still just $20 in Advance or $25 at the Door. See you there!
