Nora Jane Struthers calls her music "Classic Americana." The singer-songwriter's self-titled solo bow, to be issued June 22 on her own label, will be a revelation to roots music fans: overflowing with affecting, literate original compositions and featuring a complement of top Nashville players, it announces the debut of a major new talent.
Produced by Brent Truitt (Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, Dixie Chicks) at his East Nashville studio, Nora Jane Struthers features eleven elegantly crafted songs penned by Struthers, plus a rendition of the traditional "Say Darlin' Say." The numbers run the gamut from the stunning "Willie" (a reconsideration of the murder ballad, sung from the victim's point of view) and the novelistic "Evelyn" and "Greenbrier County" to "Cowgirl Yodel #3," a romping melding of Jimmie Rodgers and Western swing, and the timely "One Notch Tighter."
