Nora Jane Struthers might never have become a professional musician were it not for a moment of euphoria at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Struthers had gone to school to study education — and was actually working as a teacher in Brooklyn — when she turned around to face away from the stage at Telluride. When she saw the crowd and the mountains, she decided to follow her heart and head to Nashville to make music.

It helped that she'd had a childhood filled with bluegrass festivals and playing music with her family. Struthers paid her dues in Music City until she found the players who make up her band The Party Line. Her new album, Wake, is her most pop-oriented release yet, filled with songs inspired by falling in love.
