Ian Noe’s highly anticipated full-length debut album, Between The Country, will be released May 31 on Thirty Tigers. Recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, Between The Country includes 10 new songs written solely by Noe. In addition to Noe (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals) and Cobb (acoustic guitar, electric guitar), the album also features Adam Gardner (bass, organ piano), Chris Powell (drums, percussion) and Savannah Conley (backup vocals).
Already receiving widespread attention, Noe was recently highlighted on actor Jason Momoa’s YouTube channel. The video, which was filmed with the actor in Vancouver, features Noe performing several songs including album tracks “If Today Doesn’t Do Me In” and “Letter To Madeline.” Of Noe, Momoa describes, “I met Ian Noe at dinner the other night not knowing he was a musician or how incredibly talented a musician he is!! I love these spontaneous moments in life and wanted to share the love and share the music.” In celebration of the release, Noe will tour extensively this spring and summer including dates with Son Volt, Blackberry Smoke and Jamestown Revival as well as three shows supporting John Prine in Sweden, Norway and Germany.
The release of Between The Country follows a breakout year for the Kentucky native, whose debut EP, Off This Mountaintop, was released in 2017. Of the EP, Wide Open Country praises, “Noe’s songwriting is poetic, lyrics like ‘those Southern storms blowing sound like a haunted train,’ twisting just the right amount of sadness into hopeful storytelling. Slightly twangy and romantic, the acoustic guitar and echoey vocals twinkle with promise.” Following this release, Noe spent much of the past year touring across the U.S. including shows supporting Colter Wall, Jade Bird and Jessica Lea Mayfield as well as performances as part of AmericanaFest, the Folk Alliance International Conference, Holler On The Hill Festival and more.
