NPR’s Music’s Ann Powers has today debuted Nora Jane Struthers’ & The Party Line’s first song, “The Same Road” off their to-be-released new album, Wake. Describing Nora Jane as creating “some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists“, Powers calls Nora Jane “a serious woman with a light heart“, and says “the sound of the Party Line has progressed to include propulsive electric guitar and drums, and Struthers’ sweet voice is showing an edge, the better to meet the challenge.” She says that “The Same Road,” “should make anyone excited to hear the whole thing.”
The song is also featured in Songs We Love carousel on the NPR Music homepage.
