The daughter of The Band’s legendary drummer and singer Levon Helm andsinger/songwriter Libby Titus, Amy 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.
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.”
Respect for tradition with the sophistication to shake it off. Deadpan expression of a staunchly honest vision. Edmonton based Altameda (Al-tah-MEE-da) have evolved into a band with a bold, and unrelenting sound. It’s the culmination of experience, both musical and rawly human, that makes Altameda the band they are. Hitting festival circuits and stages across Canada and Europe, they’ve toured extensively since releasing their much-celebrated debut album, Dirty Rain.
This show, originally scheduled for March 20, 2020, has been moved to June 4, 2020.
