Born in Virginia and raised in New Jersey, Nora Jane Struthers grew up
playing and singing bluegrass and country music with her banjo-playing
father. After a move to Nashville, Tennessee and a brief stint fronting
the band Bearfoot, in 2012 she formed her band the Party Line and started
taking her songs on the road, backed by her best friends and a sound that
blends infectious rock with her folk and country roots. Struthers’ voice
is pure and unaffected and she delivers her songs with powerful
vulnerability. She fronts the band on acoustic and electric guitar and The
Party Line is comprised of Joe Overton (banjo, fiddle and steel guitar),
Josh Vana (electric guitar and harp), Brian Miller (bass) and Drew Lawhorn
(drums).

Now, after two albums and hundreds of performances, the band is known as
much for their tight, high energy live show as for Struthers’ smart and
disarming lyrics. Their 2015 release “Wake” was welcomed with praise by
NPR’s Fresh Air, Rolling Stone Country, and Amy Poehler’s blog Smart Girls.

Notable Performances include Old Settlers, Kerrville, Milwaukee Summerfest,
Square Roots, Rhythm & Roots, Festy Experience, Winter Wondergrass, Ann
Arbor Folk, Suwannee Springfest, Red Wing Roots, Leaf Festival, Red Ants
Pants, Sweet Pea Festival, Oyster Ridge Festival, Red, White, and
Bluegrass.

On their new album “Champion” the band worked with acclaimed producer
Neilson Hubbard in Nashville, TN. “Champion” will release in 2017.
