about

North Star Falling is the new 2015 studio recording by Canadian singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker.
About the album, North Star Falling:
A navigational reference point in the night sky, the North Star has been looked to for ages as a guide. It’s a constant. It’s dependable. And it’s helped lead the journeys of everyone from early explorers to slaves escaping under cover of darkness. But what if it fell? We’d suddenly not have this beacon on our side, and our sky would look very different. We’d likely need to change course, and take a different route. We might end up at a different destination altogether and discover something new, or we may end up where we initially intended but just via a different route with different experiences along the way. Sometimes life does throw us a curveball and in that moment we either fall in defeat or rise to the occasion. Take a chance, push forward, and go about your journey in a different way and see where it might lead you. Be open to a new adventure in the wake of a “North Star Falling”.
