Singer/songwriter/pianist Straker has a theatrical cabaret-tinged vocal style that is neatly employed on his well-crafted and melodic material. Vagabond was produced and mixed by another ace songsmith Danny Michel, who also plays a wide range of instruments on the album. This, Straker's fifth, emerges as his strongest yet. This serious and serious- looking young man plays over 100 shows a year and he tours the country this October and November. For tour dates click here.
