Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Amy Helm’s third album, What the Flood Leaves Behind, is her most autobiographical to date, both in content and creation. Released on June 18 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 hiatus for the traveling musician and mother of two young boys who sought to clarify her calling and career.
After making several albums and performing in remote locations, Helm returned home to Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock just before the pandemic to record What the Flood Leaves Behind and regain a sense of self.
“Coming back to where I learned so much about how to express music, how to stand in music, listen to music,” she begins, “it was a lesson in humility in a fun way. I could see clearly where I was from. where I am now in my life. I was singing from a different place now and for a different reason. “
An impressive group of friends and collaborators join Helm on What the Flood Leaves Behind. With musical polyglot Josh Kaufman (whose credits range from Taylor Swift’s Folklore to the Grammy-nominated Bonny Light Horseman) producing and contributing on piano, guitar and mandolin, the record puts Helm’s powerful and moving voice to the premiere. shot of the album.
