Nora Jane Struthers and the Party Line
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.
On their new album "Champion" the band worked with acclaimed producer Neilson Hubbard in Nashville, TN.
"Champion" will release Fall 2017.

By & By brings their "impressive vocals, smooth-as-honey string playing, and arms-wide-open stage energy" (DC Music Download) to bluegrass from Bill Monroe to Nickel Creek, and a catalog of original songs that reflect on the band's surroundings, pulling from the fast-paced, dynamic, and engaged culture of Washington, D.C. Their music has roots that dig through the traditions of bluegrass, folk, Americana, and rock 'n' roll, to create a sound uniquely theirs.
