Event Details

Royal Wood, a versatile musician excelling as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, has solidified his position as a genuine musical force. Following his recognition as “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continuously evolved, refining his musical prowess while maintaining a distinctive identity and exploring new sonic territories. With two albums debuting in the Top 30, numerous JUNO nominations, five Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and a chart-topping track on Hot AC radio, Wood’s achievements speak volumes. His music has also garnered attention through prominent sync placements on shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice.

Jeffery Straker, a singer-songwriter and pianist, was raised in a small farming town on the Canadian prairies, where he learned piano from his church organist mother and auctioneer father. Since then, he has embarked on a journey performing over 100 shows annually across Canada, Europe, and Latin America. Straker’s music offers a rootsy storytelling experience, weaving rich narratives that transport listeners to diverse settings, from the serene lakes of Canada’s North to the bustling main streets of prairie towns. With eight albums under his belt, critics have likened his work to the styles of Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson, and Jackson Browne. His performances have graced platforms ranging from BBC radio in the UK to symphony orchestra concerts and various festival and theatre stages.
