Like the creeks that run and tributaries that trickle throughout singer-songwriter Ian Noe's homelands in Eastern Kentucky, water flows throughout his new LP. Thoughtfully and intentionally named, 'River Fools & Mountain Saints' highlights Noe's storytelling prowess through 12 country rockers and Appalachian ballads, depicting contemporary and historical life in the region. Broader in scope and brighter in tone than his lauded debut, 2019's 'Between the Country', 'River Fools & Mountain Saints' boasts a fuller sound with more diverse instrumentation.
