Ian Noe is big on the American country and folk scene. He is steeped in classic americana: the art of the apposite song about the woes of small town life, songs that, like short stories, sharply observe the details below the surface of provincial society. Ian Noe (born 1990) is from Beattyville in Kentucky, the same state as currently popular singers like Tyler Childers and Sturgill Simpson. In 2017, Ian Noe made the EP Off This Mountaintop and toured subsequently with Canadian Colter Wall. In early 2019 his debut album Between the Country appeared, produced by top Nashville producer Dave Cobb. The song Letter To Madeleine was nominated as International Song of the Year at the UK Americana Awards 2020, and Nashville Scene magazine placed Ian Noe among the best New Acts of 2019. One reviewer wrote that if you like Tyler Childers and Colter Wall, then you should also hear Ian Noe. Or listen to the late John Prine, who was one of Ian Noe’s greatest inspirations. Ian Noe sang at Tønder Festival 2019. Solo – and his only Danish festival concert in 2021.
