Described as 'A treat to the auditory senses' Helm & the ASB hail from Cornwall. Their sound is a lush blanket of harmonies, draped over a twisting landscape of stories. The songs tell tales of Helm's life, travels and of himself. Mix in some sweet country slide guitar and a group of fine musicians and the end result is a collection of heart felt songs that take you on a journey through the eyes of the author. In the short space of time that they have been on the road, they have amassed a good loyal following. The forthcoming album 'Superheroes' is currently in the final recording stages and will hopefully be released later this year.
Under the influence of folk, blues and country music, the band comes in many guises. The very nature of the all star lineup is transient. The outfit itself is more like a collective of talented local musicians who offer their time up whenever they are available. This makes the sound fresh and ever evolving whilst maintaining the original roots and themes of Helm's original concept. It also makes each show more unique and worthy of a listen. Whilst in the process of recording the debut album, the band have released an EP from a live recording made with an invited audience. You can stream it on the media page.
