“Slow Climb’s musical personality doesn’t stop at a single premise…there’s much to be said for Struthers’ individual decisions regarding aspects like arrangement, pace, and harmonic progression…every element works together.” 

– American Songwriter

I am so thrilled that Rolling Stone is debuting ‘Nice To Be Back Home’ today. It’s the song that kicks off my new album Bright Lights, Long Drives, First Words and it’s also the very first song we’re releasing out into the world.

I wrote the song about balancing life on the road and life at home but I think most people can relate. Even at the end of the most wonderful vacation, it’s nice to come back home. Hopefully, your everyday life is the actual dream. I chose it to kick off the record because it evokes the feeling I want to be associated with. When you come to my shows, I hope you leave feeling uplifted, connected, happy. And when you turn on my record, I want you to get your Nora Jane fix right away.

Check it out and let me know what you think. I hope you love it, and that it makes you feel at home.

Today I am excited to announce that I am releasing a new studio album in February and you can come be a part of it on Kickstarter.  The title is Bright Lights, Long Drives, First Words … because I like to keep it short and catchy!

This is my 9th studio album and as an independent artist, though the record is finished, my work is just beginning.  It takes a lot of hard work, and money to put this record into the hands of people who can help it get heard by a wider audience.  My community has always been my record label … YOU ARE THE RECORD LABEL.

When you back this album on Kickstarter you can choose from a passel of different reward levels and EVERYONE who backs it gets their name in the liner notes…as a part of the artwork.  I’ve got a vision for it and it’s gonna be SWEET.

Our goal is to raise $40,000 in 33 days.  Come check out the Kickstarter page, find a reward that is exciting to you, and become a part of the record.  And friends, you’re always so good at helping me spread the word about upcoming shows and new music with your community…I know I can count on you to spread this campaign around to your music-loving friends, family, colleagues, pets, etc…
