Amy Helm sought what she calls a “circular sound” for her new album. The 10 tracks of This Too Shall Light are 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.The title track in particular is a brilliant summation of the record’s sound and spirit — a positive and proactive manipulation of the old adage that “This too shall pass.”

The daughter of The Band’s legendary drummer and singer Levon Helm andsinger/songwriter Libby Titus, Helm began her musical career as a founding member of the alt-country collective Ollabelle and later served as a backing musician in her father's Midnight Ramble Band. While This Too Shall Light is only Helm’s second album under her own name, it serves as a comprehensive portrait covering her life's journeys and recoveries.
