About

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Moen. Four years ago I finally started writing music while at the University of Iowa. A couple years after, I graduated and started to play more outside of Iowa City and with the band. Stayed on couches around Iowa, over in Dublin, France, etc. Came back to town and had a place for a bit, but stopped because I was gone so much. Gave away most of my belongings and traded apartment keys for tour van keys. Since then, I’ve been out of the van playing, writing, and learning nonstop.

Amidst it all, I released an EP and two LPS on vinyl through the many part-time jobs I worked in and out of college and loans from friends and family (any money I make from touring goes straight back to fund the next run of shows. Same for merch. It mostly just helps pay to make more!).

I want to record and release another record, but I don’t have the funds to do it and to do it the way I want to. With all of this growth, we are ready to record something big. Something epic. We’ve got almost 50 songs to choose from. A lot are about ups and downs, love, loss, happiness, confusion, mental health. The hard and easy parts of what it means to be our true selves in such strange times.

These funds would go towards production, compensating the musicians involved, sound engineers, studio time, mixing, mastering, guest musicians. We want pedal steel, horns, strings, harmonies, synth. Then the graphic designs and videos that come along with it too. Then actually printing the cds and vinyl. There is an endless list of the things involved. And the list of people I want to fully compensate with making a record in this way is long too.  Once we’ve got the funds, we can finally start this next big step! 

Thank you for reading this, for listening to my music, and supporting art in this way!

Risks and challenges

Once we have the means, we hope to start recording as soon as possible!
