“Built on a brittle, funky rhythm and punctuated with ghostly B3 organ and horns that would sound at home on a Sharon Jones album, it’s part urgent plea, part mysterious flirtation carried by Helm’s soulful voice and the spacious production from Josh Kaufman.” – Rolling Stone
“Stunning, filled with everything one hopes for in a live show. They played songs from her stellar new album….it was one of those moments of illumination, where everything comes together to elevate the room in the pure joy of music.” – NPR Music
“Amy Helm is the answer to the question, “How can a mandolin player also be such a soulful vocalist?” …On the album’s first song, “Verse 23” (written specifically for her by Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor) that contains a line used for the album’s title, Helm stakes out what lies before us all.” – No Depression
“Helm shares a certain loose-limbed sensibility with Bonnie Raitt, her rangy voice easily sliding from the New Orleans’ tinged title track to the swampy closer ‘Wild Girl’” – Rolling Stone
“Vibrant spirituality that aims straight at your heart…introspective, reflective, and beautifully heartfelt…terrific.” – American Songwriter
“I hope you all will listen to this record by @AmyHelmMusic ASAP. She is one of the great singers of our generation.” – Hiss Golden Messenger via Twitter @hissgldnmssr
Kat Wright, Bob Wagner (guitar) and Josh Weinstein (bass) lean into their trio formation,showcasing their folky / rootsy selves, all stripped down,a triangulation of their strengths, their bareness,their imperfect humanness, their voices,their ferocious tenderness, their love of songs and singing and story.
