Born in Virginia, raised in New Jersey, Nora Jane Struthers grew up singing and playing traditional music with her dad, Alan Struthers. After earning her degree in English Education from New York University, she spent three years teaching high school English in Brooklyn, NY. During these years, Nora Jane and her dad began performing out in New York City and New Jersey, as a duo under the name Dirt Road Sweetheart. In August of 2008, Nora Jane made a career change and moved to Nashville, TN where she recorded her debut, self-titled, album, comprised of eleven original songs and one traditional song. The record, which features some of Nashville's A-List players (Stuart Duncan, Tim O'Brien, Bryan Sutton, Dennis Crouch, Shawn Lane, Scott Vestal, Rob Ickes, Jeff Taylor, John Catchings, Emily Miller, Brent Truitt, and Macon Gurley) was produced and recorded by industry stalwart Brent Truitt and was released independently in June 2010, staying in the top 40 of the Americana Radio Chart for 14 weeks. Two days before the release of her record, Nora Jane Struthers and her band, The Bootleggers, won the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition (previous winners include Nickel Creek, The Dixie Chicks & Bearfoot). In both 2009 and 2010 Nora Jane was a finalist in The Telluride Troubadour Competition and in 2009, she and the Bootleggers won the Neo-traditional Band Competition at the Appalachian String Band Gathering in Clifftop, WV where Nora Jane was also given the award for Best New Song. As of 2012, Nora Jane Struthers is working on her second album, to be released in 2013. Read more on Last.fm.
