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 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 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.

An impressive group of friends and collaborators joins 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 brings Helm’s powerful, emotive vocals to the forefront of the album.

Helm will perform songs from her new album at the Sheldon Theatre. Tickets start at $23 and kids play free.
