About the Artist

Helene Cronin is a Texas artist who spent most of 2019 working on a new full-length record, produced by Matt King in Nashville. OLD GHOSTS & LOST CAUSES was released to high praise on Oct. 11, 2019. This comes right on the heels of being named a 2018 New Folk Winner at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival. Helene considers her writing style a merger between Americana and Country but she’s perhaps best described simply as an acoustic storyteller. She draws comparisons to Lori McKenna, Nanci Griffith, and writers like Mary Gauthier and Travis Meadows, but her sound is uniquely her own. Audiences are drawn to her intimate, personal performances and call her raw, honest and vulnerable, saying, “her songs make me think”.

With a voice as distinguishable and versatile as her name, Season Ammons is an award-winning songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, blending soulful blues with Texas roots and Americana.  Ammons’ most recent project, ‘Steel Hearts,’ is her fourth and most personal album to date.  For this recording, Texas-based Ammons took a special trip across the pond and recorded in the legendary Studio 2 at London’s fabled Abbey Road Studios.  Sought-after producer David Percefull (Green Day, Gary Clark Jr., Meat Puppets) mixed ‘Steel Hearts’ at Abbey Road in Studio 3, and Sean Magee (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Rush, Iron Maiden) mastered the album there. Drawing predominantly from her experiences of heartbreak, forgiveness, self-acceptance and new love ‘Steel Hearts’ showcases Ammons’ unique, searing intensity and confirms that this singular artist has a lot more to say and infinite ways to say it.
