“Vibrant spirituality that aims straight at your heart…introspective, reflective, and beautifully heartfelt…terrific.” -American Songwriter
Daugter of Levon Helm and former member of Olabelle, Amy Helm is blessed with a commanding, deeply expressive voice and an uncanny songwriting skill rooted in American tradition.
Helm’s third album, What the Flood Leaves Behind, is her most autobiographical yet, both in content and creation. Released in June 2021 via Renew Records/BMG, these 10 songs represent a gathering of ideas and experiences, friends and collaborators. Yet, the album also marks a landing — a pause for the traveling musician and mother of two young boys who was seeking clarity in her calling and career.
This holiday week year-ender with Amy’s acoustic trio has become something of a tradition here at Caffe Lena. Her deeply felt songs and the exquisite instrumental skill of the trio fit our room like a hand in a glove.
