Album Notes
Helen Henderson, singer/songwriter from New Zealand
Helen Henderson hails from Southland, New Zealand. Helen started her musical career in London, and is now based in Los Angeles. Her first CD "The Sonora Sessions " was recorded in Los Angeles, and had excellent reviews. "Henderson matches her powerful backing with confident originals and a convincing mid American voice ..... but it's the folk demons of her Southland childhood that she returns to in "The Ballad of Minnie Dean." Nick Bollinger, The Listener. "She carries these songs on the strength of her songwriting which is right out of the Southern traditions.... a highly convincing introduction to someone we could happily hear more from." Graham Reid, The Herald. Her latest CD "Twisting Wind" was recorded at F.A.M.E.Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, fondly referred to as "the cradle of rock and roll." Powerful and raw, this album, captures a moment in time, and some tantalizing soul from a "Kiwi Siren." The CD features stunning new material played by some of the worlds finest international musicians.
