Recent critical acclaim for Between The Country

“…beautiful collection of short story songs…”
“Like John Prine, one of his musical heroes, Noe’s Between the Country is full of stunning imagery…it’s as if the listener is standing right there with Noe, watching the scene play out.” –NPR Music

“…a stark, rich and organic sonic palette that echoes the hollers of Kentucky. It’s as though Noe dipped each song into a backwoods creek and wrung out the water to create one of the year’s most gripping and satisfying albums.” –Rolling Stone

“The emotional depth of his lyrics coupled with his forceful vocal cadence atop delicate melodies are certainly enough to carry his songs on their own…”
“…there isn’t anyone quite like him in the current music landscape.” –AV Club

“…his voice duets with an acoustic guitar line as meandering and delicately crafted as a spiderweb.” –No Depression

“…the Eastern Kentucky singer-songwriter is a remarkable story teller, with lyrics rich in detail, imagery, and tales of small-town life.” –WXPN's "The Key"

“Ian checks all the boxes in what makes a great singer-songwriter. He has a voice somewhat reminiscent of Nashville skyline era Bob Dylan, is a proficient guitar player, and writes exceptionally crafted songs that have an innate ability to transport you into the story, watching each scene unfold with startling detail.” –Kentucky Country Home

In celebration of the release, Noe will embark on his first ever headline tour this fall including stops at Louisville’s Zanzabar, Allston’s Great Scott, Philadelphia’s MilkBoy, Washington D.C.’s Songbyrd, New York’s Rockwood Music Hall, Atlanta’s The Earl and Nashville’s Exit/In among several others. Additionally, Noe will continue to tour extensively this summer including several dates with Rival Sons and Jamestown Revival as well as three shows supporting John Prine in Sweden, Norway and Germany. Tickets for the newly confirmed headline dates go on-sale today at 10:00am ET. See below for complete details.

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.” Additionally, Noe is currently the cover image of Spotify’s Fresh Folk playlist, Amazon Music’s Fresh Folk playlist and Tidal’s Rising: Country/Folk playlist.

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.
