After a solo tour in Europe this February of 2017, Elizabeth Moen is back in the Midwest and ready for touring with her bandmates Justin, Blake, and Dan. Elizabeth was raised in Vinton, Iowa and recently graduated from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. She began playing guitar as a teenager, though it was thanks to the writing community of Iowa City that she was inspired to write her own music. Her sound and songs are inspired by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Van Morrison, and modern acts like Angel Olson, Esmé Patterson, Alabama Shakes, and Shakey Graves.
After writing her first eight songs released on her first EP in January 2016, she now has a repertoire of forty-plus songs. She recently finished recording many of these songs with her band members in fall and early winter of 2016. They have completed their first full-length record set to be released May 13th, 2017 on William Elliott Whitmore and Luke Tweedy's (of Flat Black Studios) Long Play Records. This album is a mixture of old and new with various inspirations from old jazz, to modern indie-rock. Featured on the album are collaborations including contributions from twelve very talented Iowa musicians.
