Natalie’s welcomes Nora Jane Struthers and Korby Lenker, who are on a brief tour together to promote the recent video they did together for Nora Jane’s song “Let’s Just Have Supper”.
Born in Virginia and raised in New Jersey, Nora Jane Struthers grew up playing and singing bluegrass and country music with her banjo-playing father. After a move to Nashville, Tennessee and a brief stint fronting the band Bearfoot, in 2012 she formed her band the Party Line and started taking her songs on the road, backed by her best friends and a sound that blends infectious rock with her folk and country roots. Struthers’ voice is pure and unaffected and she delivers her songs with powerful vulnerability.
Korby’s deliberate approach to music is the mainstay of a career now tipping into its third decade. Along the way there have been numerous songwriting awards (including first place wins at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriters Showcase) and festival appearances, (Sasquatch, Bumbershoot). Lenker has also shared the stage with such luminaries as Willie Nelson, Ray Lamontagne, Nickel Creek, Chris Isaak, to name a few.
