Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line
Southgate House Revival, 111 E 6th St, Newport, KY
8pm doors, 8:30pm show, $10, Buy Tickets
Nora Jane Struthers will release ‘Wake’ on February 24, 2015, a powerful statement of her own rock-n-roll awakening. Backed by her band The Party Line, the “beguiling…guided by fire” (NPR’s Ann Powers) Struthers mixes pedal steel with robust guitar riffs and her own fearless voice. The 11 original songs on ‘Wake,’ which Struthers self-produced, evoke the realization that she can, as she says, “reconcile my love of both bluegrass and Pearl Jam,” and make sonic magic. NPR Music’s The Record premiered lead track “The Same Road,” praising its “propulsive direction” and saying the song “should make anyone excited to hear the whole [new album].” Listen here: http://shorefi.re/1t8mDhU
