Elizabeth Moen will be releasing her sophomore LP titled "A Million Miles Away" on vinyl this September in the US, and August in Ireland and the U.K. Elizabeth's song "Mars" is featured in a new Netflix original movie - Candy Jar by director Ben Shelton, and staring Christina Hendricks, Uzo Aduba, and Helen Hunt.

This summer will be stocked full of great shows and festivals in Iowa and the Midwest. Moen has previously released a self-titled EP in 2016 and a vinyl LP titled "That's All I Wanted" in 2017. With these albums, Moen has toured the Midwest, Europe, and the West Coast during these last two years as a solo performer and with her full band.

Elizabeth recently graduated from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. She taught herself how to play guitar as a teenager in Vinton, Iowa, and it was thanks to the writing community of Iowa City that she was inspired to write her own songs during her later college years. Her sound and songs flow fluidly across many genres, and are inspired by modern artists such as Alabama Shakes, Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen, Julien Baker, Esmé Patterson, and Lake Street Dive and older influences such as Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, and Bonnie Raitt.

Elizabeth Moen has also had the opportunity to play with acts such as Lake Street Dive, Margaret Glaspy, Lucy Dacus, Houndmouth, Son Little, Esme Patterson, William Elliott Whitmore (featured on her LP), Caroline Smith, Nicole Atkins, the Weepies, Lissie, Becca Mancari (July), and many more. In addition to these acts, Moen has also had the opportunity to play at many special festivals and venues such as Mission Creek Festival, 80/35 Music Festival, Camp Euforia Music Festival, music residencies with Sofar Sounds, The Englert Theater, FOAM St. Louis, The Tonic Room Chicago, Bottom of the Hill San Francisco, Neck of the Woods San Francisco, Lost Church San Francisco, Whelan's Dublin, Workman's Dublin, The Ruby Sessions Dublin, The Roisin Dubh Galway, La Java Pop Orleans France, CSPS Hall, The Raccoon Motel, Daytrotter, and many more.

The Culture Trip says, “Elizabeth Moen is one of those rare artists whose voice, from the first moment you hear it, consumes your entire being, doing away with all previous thoughts and concerns, and leaving you short of breath.”
Little Village says, “Moen transfigures folk into an experience in the totality of instruments. But her vocals never shy away from the driver’s seat.”
IPR(NPR) says, “Elizabeth is armed with a jaw-dropping singing voice, tasteful guitar playing, and songs that stay in your head for days.”

After writing her first eight songs released on her first EP in January 2016, she now has a repertoire of forty-plus songs. She released her first full-length on 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. Elizabeth was back in the studio recording more new music before leaving for her recent European solo tour. More information about the upcoming 2018 album coming soon!
