Elizabeth Moen Is Having A Moment

Courtesy of Elizabeth Moen
Elizabeth Moen's most recent album "A Million Miles Away" was released in September 2018 and recorded at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree.

Elizabeth Moen is a favorite in Iowa. She's played venues like Racoon Motel in Davenport, the Englert Theater in Iowa City, stopped by Daytrotter last year, and even made her way onto the Hinterland lineup for this summer.

But following the release of her second EP and a tour that took her from coast to coast and over seas,  it's becoming clear that Moen's fan base streaches far beyond statelines

Her submission for the Tiny Desk Contest has been viewed more than 12,000 times, and highlighted by NPR Music as one of six performances they "can't stop watching." 

Moen stopped by Iowa Public Radio's Iowa City studios to discuss songwriting, her plans for a new record, and to play a stripped down version of "Headgear," the song that has captured the attention of Tiny Desk devotees across the country.
