Rebecca Loebe is on a mission. “I like to write catchy songs about topics that are meaningful to me, but use fun hooks to put words in people’s mouths.” She admits, “My favorite thing is to get people singing along before they even realize they’re singing about women’s equality or their own self-worth.” The Austin-based troubadour has won multiple awards for her songwriting and was recently told by an announcer for the BBC, “Your voice should be available free on the National Health!” Over the past decade, she’s been steadily building her audience the old fashioned way: driving hundreds of thousands of miles in an old station wagon, performing in listening rooms and theaters across the US, Canada, Japan, Europe and the UK. Along the way, she’s released five full-length albums including her most recent effort Give Up Your Ghosts, her first collaboration with Houston-based indie label Blue Corn Music (Ruthie Foster, Wood & Wire, Sarah Borges). The new genre-bending album borrows equally from the worlds of intimate folk, ear wormy pop, and no-holds-barred Americana. Refusing to pledge allegiance to any single genre was a creative gamble that has paid off in a big way: Give Up Your Ghosts has received the best press of Loebe’s career including praise from Billboard, Rolling Stone and legendary rock critic Dave Marsh, who said “Once I put it on I couldn’t take it off.”

“Ravishingly melodic!” – Ani DiFranco

Noe’s music invites you to journey to your inner fringes to connect with your wild soul.  Lose yourself in dreamy acoustic soundscapes infused with symphonic, world music, and art-pop elements.  Sing along to stirring lyrics that evoke the mythic, always with a fresh turn of phrase.  

Noe plays guitar, piano, and Celtic harp.  In order to capture a vibe of maximum intimacy, she does most of her recording at home.
