May 23rd, 2019                          Nora Jane Struthers

Nora Jane Struthers is "remarkable,” says Ann Powers of NPR Music, and writes music that is “as

powerful as anything Jason Isbell released this year.” The songs that last decades and weave themselves

into the fabric of listeners' lives are usually the ones in which an artist lays her soul bare for the world to

hear. Struthers' new album Champion, released at the close of 2017, is built on these kinds of songs.

Struthers wrote and recorded the album with her longtime road band the Party Line, and the chemistry

between her and the other players is palpable. Champion is the follow-up to 2015's Wake, and earned

Struthers acclaim from major outlets like NPR’s Fresh Air, Rolling Stone, and Vice/Noisey, who raved that

“Nora Jane Struthers and her band sound ready to take over Americana completely … bringing a fuller,

harder sound to the table.”

Special Guest: Grizzly Goat

 Grizzly Goat's music is as the band's name suggests, undomesticated. Grizzly's blend of folk-rock spans the entire breadth of the Americana genre; from soft and sincere campfire ballads to rocking electric harmonica solos on top of pounding drums and flailing banjo.

The band is hardworking and tireless. They’ve brought their rootsy compositions from coast to coast in their white passenger van. Whether at a festival or a small scale BBQ joint, Grizzly Goat's aim is to connect with their audience on an individual level, building a relationship with each listener.
