NPR Music posts a video of our theme song, Party Line, off of our upcoming release Carnival!  This video was filmed in Toronto by our good friends at Folk Alley: Linda Fahey, Jeff Oehler, Susan Bibeau, and Jon Nungesser.  Here’s what they say about the new album:

by Kim Ruehl

It’s no surprise that Brent Truitt was the producer on tap for Nora Jane Struthers’ new second album, Carnival. Truitt is best known for his work with Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton — three artists whose music, if you could melt it down and mix it all together, might come out sounding like Struthers and her backup band, The Party Line.

Here, in the tune after which she named the group, Struthers sings an old-timey country song about an old-timey country tradition, in a voice as sweet as honeysuckle. Fiddle lines from the gifted Aaron Jonah Lewis and duet vocals by banjo player Joe Overton round out the foot-tapping, spirited interplay. This is real country music — nothing but a handful of strings and vocals, brought home by way of Struthers’ innate charm.

  • Recorded at Folk Alliance International in Toronto, Ontario
  • Producers: Linda Fahey & Beehive Productions
  • Audio: Jeff Oehler
