Nora Jane Struthers' latest record, "Wake", backed by her band The Party Line, mixes pedal steel with robust guitar riffs and Nora Jane's own fearless voice. The 11 original songs on Wake, which Nora Jane self-produced, evoke the realization that she can, as she says, "reconcile my love of both bluegrass and Pearl Jam" and make some sonic magic. "Wake" leaves behind wistful narratives in favor of Nora Jane's most personal, autobiographical songs yet.
“Nora Jane Struthers is guided by fire. Struthers has [come] up with some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists.” Ann Powers, NPR Music.
“Just as her intensely energetic live performances connect audiences to the intricate tales woven through her lyrics, the ever-widening scope of Nora Jane Struthers’ musicality means that placing a neat, easy label on the genre she best represents is virtually impossible.” [Wake] has an “evolved blend of roots and rock with plenty of fiddle and steel guitar, [where] Struthers’ lyrical vulnerability is matched by her growing confidence as a performer.” – Stephen L. Betts, Rolling Stone Country
