Often compared to a mixture of early Elton John, Billy Joel, and Harry Chapin, singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker and his piano-folk-pop music perform 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 Ghana. His tour stops range from intimate house concerts to club and theatre shows and include recent sold-out concerts with Canadian symphony orchestras in Saskatoon, Regina and Sudbury.

The review following his orchestral debut read: "Straker was simply spectacular; clearly one of the province's best cultural exports". 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".

A huge career boost came from winning the prestigious Vina del Mar (Chile) song competition where he represented Canada. Performing live to a festival crowd of 20,000 people and to a TV audience of 100,000,000 viewers across the Spanish speaking world he quickly gained a considerable fan-following.

Matt Patershuk is no stranger to lumberjack plaid and his delicate outlaw country tunes of the common man carry with them a wholesome, nostalgic vision of rural Alberta. Life experience as a small-town desk jockey for a bridge construction company and former forester, gave him ample fodder for his debut album "Outside the Lights of Town", produced in Vancouver by Steve Dawson. Matt crafts archetypal characters of classic country and western songs then adapts them to a Northern Canadian landscape. They are well-imagined tales: an aging small-town hero, an oilfield widow, a barroom brawl over love gone astray, the toll of living in a one-industry town and a farmer with his own take on the divine. Effortlessly playing gentle blues or steel guitar with a subtle twang, Matt has a charm and vigor that sets him apart.
