Nora Jane Struthers brings her power trio to Cape May to present a catalog of music that NPR has described as “some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists.” Don’t be fooled by the “quietly” part, though: the trio is just as adept at rocking the house with a powerfully electric anthem as they are at soothing your soul with a contemplative ballad, and they often draw on their bluegrass roots to add texture to the music.


The gorgeous vocal harmonies between Nora Jane and her husband, multi-instrumentalist Joe Overton, highlight deeply personal and insightful lyrics that weave themselves into the fabric of listeners’ lives – songs about finding the poetry in the everyday, life’s little miracles, and how our struggles make our successes all the more precious. Meanwhile, drummer Drew Lawhorn keeps the beat whether Struthers is joyfully leading the audience in a dance party or laying her soul bare for the world to hear. The trio’s performance is full to the brim with stellar musicianship, unexpected arrangements that blur the line between folk, roots, and rock, and an audible sense that everyone in the room is having a damn good time.
