After Didn’t It Rain, the beautiful American blue-eyed blonde releases her second solo album on the label Yep Roc. This Too Shall Light is a sublime spiritual journey produced by the indispensable Joe Henry. Amy Helm exhibits great sensitivity to folk music, to soul, to gospel and to Americana. Throughout these ten tracks, she ventures outside of her comfort zone and takes inspiration, with her producer, from the gospel album Motel Shot by Delaney & Bonnie. Far from her band Ollabelle, Helm works with many songwriters and composers. MC Taylor from Hiss Golden Messenger for This Too Shall Light or Theodore Pecchio from Chris Robinson Brotherhood on Heaven's Holding Me for the most famous ones. But the album also contains some rather eclectic covers, such as Rod Stewart’s Mandolin Wind or Allen Toussaint’s Freedom for the Stallion. You’ll listen to these recordings with even more attention when you’ll know that Amy Helm, following Henry’s advice, didn’t really familiarize herself with the titles and took only four days to record them. No vocal duplication and two takes or less on each song bring this sincerity to the interpretation of these spiritual songs. Then This Too Shall Light also has a strong personal value for the singer, because it closes with Gloryland, a unique arrangement that her father, the great Levon Helm from Band, taught her many years ago… © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

Country's Female Iconoclasts in 10 Songs

In March 2021, Loretta Lynn released her 50th solo studio album, Still Woman Enough. A god-fearing mother of six, she broke boundaries in the 1970s by singing about what women really thought—even if they weren't comfortable enough to say it in public. In honor of Lynn's 90th birthday and the important conversations she started, here is a look at 10 songs by country music's female iconoclasts who also refuse to put up with the status quo.

The Past, Present and Future of Black Country Artists

For decades, country music has been largely shut off to Black artists. There have been notable, even iconic, exceptions throughout history, of course. But there are too few of those, to the point that their success was often treated as novelty. There were also too many performers who should have made it big but were forced into stereotypes that didn't comfortably fit. Fortunately, there have been signs of hope in the past few years—hope that feels like a lot more than just good intentions and lip service. This tribute explores the history, and promising future, of Black artists in country music.

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.
