Elizabeth Moen’s music came all at once, in what seemed like a fury at the bitter end of her college career. Playing guitar since middle school and singing old Johnny Cash and Billie Holiday covers at open mics, she finally began to write her own songs in September of 2015. Now residing in Iowa City, the music and writing communities inspired the small town girl from Vinton, Iowa to create her own sound. This sound is inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, and contemporary female singer-songwriters like Angel Olsen, Esmé Patterson, and Margaret Glaspy, Moen’s music is a compilation of the music she was raised on; folk, rock, blues, and soul.
After writing her first eight songs released on her first EP in January 2016, she now has a repertoire of forty-plus songs. She has recently finished recording many of these with her band members in fall and early winter of 2016. They have completed their first full-length record set to be released in spring of 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.
