Saskatchewan-born, but with strong ties to Toronto, Jeffery Straker has been working hard over the last few years to build a name for himself in the music industry. In 2009, he released his debut CD Step Right Up. Now, he’s back with his follow-up Under the Soles of My Shoes.

Fresh off a performance with Jully Black in Toronto at a Proud FM fundraiser and a showcase gig at Prairie Scene in Ottawa, Straker is doing a CD release at the Exchange tonight.

To close, here’s the video for the first single off Straker’s new album “Brand New Ocean”.
