Singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker performs over 100 shows per year across Canada. He’s recorded for CBC radio’s ‘Canada Live’, had a music video chart in the top 10 on Much Music and has toured internationally playing pianos in places as far away as Mexico, Chile, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. On his new album, Dirt Road Confessional (May 2017), Straker continues to push the boundaries of what it means to be a piano balladeer. With themes both contemplative and joyous, the 12-song collection encapsulates the seasoned singer/songwriter’s experiences of playing shows around the world & launched at #5 on the iTunes singer songwriter charts in Canada. Straker regularly draws comparisons to Harry Nilsson, Kris Kristofferson as well as a young Billy Joel or Elton John but on Dirt Road Confessional his personal storytelling style stands out distinctly as his own. The album has been finding favour with both critics and fans alike.
Sara Kamin's powerful voice has been compared to incredible female artists like Jann Arden, Patty Griffin, Adele, India.Arie and Bessie Smith. A regular performer both in Canada and the UK, Kamin has shared the stage with Molly Johnson, Murray Mclaughlin, Jason Collett, Jill Barber, Jonatha Brooke, Ember Swift, Melissa Ferrick, Edie Carey, and Madison Violet. Her latest album, "The Music in Me," is her most honest, authentic recording to date. Joined by Oliver Pigott (guitar, background vocals) and Lyndell Montgomery (violin), Kamin has created an album of well-crafted, soulful folk-pop tunes exploring love, heartache and the human condition.
"Sara Kamin has a very natural way with a song and a voice that is lovely and pure." - Ron Sexsmith
