Amy Helm has won widespread praise as a singer, songwriter and live performer as a member of the celebrated alt-country collective Ollabelle and subsequently for her extensive work with her father, music icon Levon Helm. Blessed with a commanding, deeply expressive voice and an uncanny songwriting skill rooted in American musical traditions, Amy Helm delivers timelessly powerful songs.

This Too Shall Light, released September 21, 2018 on Yep Roc Records, is Helm's newest album. Helm sought a well-rounded sound for this album, one marked by streaks of Americana, country, blues, and gospel, and the kinds of four-part harmonies that can burst open a melody and close the loop of an octave. And sentimentally, its a sound that represents the feeling of community.

Helm left her home and comfort zone of Woodstock, NY, choosing to record in Los Angeles within the confines of just a four-day window. Produced by Grammy-winning producer and songwriter, Joe Henry, the musicians were directed not to overthink the songs, and Helm herself barely performed any of the selections while leading up to the recording. As a result, the sessions forced fast musical trust among the collaborators and yielded the vibrant instrumental improvisations heard throughout This Too Shall Light.
