Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Amy Helm’s third album, What the Flood Leaves Behind, is her most autobiographical yet, both in content and creation. Due out June 18th 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.
After making multiple albums and performing in far-flung places, Helm returned home to Woodstock’s Levon Helm Studios just before the pandemic to record What the Flood Leaves Behind and reclaim a sense of self.

Rolling Stone named 15 year old EmiSunshine among 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know, but she is more than country. With music described as “old timey,” the East Tennessee native adds her own unique contemporary blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, Bluegrass, Gospel, Blues and Jazz. Critics have compared her to a young Janis Joplin, Iris Dement and Dolly Parton. EmiSunshine has been attracting national attention since she was nine years old with appearances on “Pickler & Ben” and the Grand Ole Opry 14 times and she has been praised by the likes of Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, Tim McGraw, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart and The Grateful Dead. Come see what the buzz is about!
