Ian Noe draws on the day-to-day life of Eastern Kentucky on his debut album, Between the Country. Recorded by Dave Cobb, these songs introduce a number of complicated characters, diverse in their own downfalls but bound together by Noe's singular voice.
Noe says, “There’s a silence about Eastern Kentucky. It’s quiet, at least where I was raised. There are a lot of places you can go and write and listen to music and not be bothered.”
