We are so honored that Champion was named in NPR’s Top 10 Underheard Albums of 2017.
“Struthers uses the sturdiness of her sound to take chances in her stories, and never more so than on this courageous album about the first year of her marriage to bandmate Joe Overton and their struggle to begin a family. The intimacy Struthers achieves in the album’s gently linear narrative — unfolding from the hope of young settled love through self-doubt, communication breakdown, loneliness and, ultimately, acceptance — is remarkable. She speaks of women’s truths rarely addressed in song without making any fuss at all about the courage doing so requires. “I’ve got grit,” she declares in one anthem that’s as powerful as anything Jason Isbell made this year.”
Thank you Ann Powers and NPR for your continued love and support.
