Happy Friday. I hope you enjoy this new music video from 29-year-old Nashville artist Nora Jane Struthers. The video features her and her band mates biking the streets of East Nashville.
The first time Struthers sings the song’s most important line — “I can go anywhere” — the phrase rises up out of her throat, free, wide open. The second time, a phrase later, she clamps down on it with some grit. “‘Bike Ride’ is a song about a re-awakening,” the 29-year-old Nashville resident said in a recent email. “When you propel yourself forward through time and space on your own steam, you realize your own agency.”
