The Blues, perhaps more than any other genre, is blessed with a wealth of incredible female performers who possess a deep passion for the genre. They also possess incredible skills in singing, songwriting, playing, and every other aspect of the music industry. This week, Full-Time Blues Radio devotes an entire hour of programming to what amounts to just a small cross section of the incredible women of the Blues genre.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Rescue Me” by Amy Helm. It comes off her solo debut record, Didn’t It Rain, which is available now. It has been a long journey to this record’s ultimate release. The creation process had stops and starts while Amy navigated major life events – one of which being the loss of her father, Levon Helm, who was a significant part of the CD. Levon played drums on a couple of the songs before he passed away in 2012; and he is listed as the executive producer.

Scroll below this week’s playlist to watch Amy and her band perform at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, courtesy of Jam in the Van. There is a wealth of information, multimedia, news, tour dates and more available on Amy’s official website, AmyHelm.com
