“Fans of Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton, take notice: Nora Jane Struthers embodies everything you could want in an Americana singer-songwriter.” — NPR Music “When you go to a carnival, you go into a sideshow tent, and on every stage you find a different person with a different story,”says Nora Jane Struthers.“That's why I'm trying to do with this album – craft vignettes, and in some cases more developed narratives, about imaginary people's lives.” Struthers' album 'Carnival,' which was issued on the singer-songwriter's own label on April 16, is an ambitious and literate follow-up to the Nashville performer's much-praised 2010 debut. Produced by Brent Truitt (Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, Dixie Chicks), who also helmed Struthers' self-titled bow, 'Carnival' comprises 14 fresh original compositions in her “Classic Americana” vein that richly show off her skills as a sensitive and intelligent tune-weaver and a warm and persuasive vocalist. Recorded at Truitt's East Nashville studio, the album marks the recording debut of Struthers' touring band, the Party Line (which takes its handle from one of the record's songs, about the early days of rural telephone calls). The gifted group of instrumentalists includes Struthers' longtime collaborator P. J. George (upright bass, harmony vocals, pedal steel guitar, accordion and banjo), Joe Overton (clawhammer banjo and harmony vocals), Aaron Jonah Lewis (fiddle, three-finger banjo, baritone fiddle, mandolin) and Drew Lawhorn (drums). Guests include producer Truitt on mandolin and singers Rachael Hester and Nick Woods. Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line support the album with heavy touring in theaters, clubs and festivals, including the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion. 'Carnival' caps three years of intense work by the 29 year-old that included recognition of her group as best band at Colorado's prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival, a stint as featured vocalist and songwriter in the Alaska-bred, Nashville-based band B
