About Mary Gauthier

Mary Gauthier is a Grammy-nominated American folk singer/songwriter and author whose dark atmospheres and tales of marginalized people draw on her early experiences with addiction and recovery and growing up gay in Southern Louisiana. She made her initial mark in 1999 following her self-released sophomore effort, Drag Queens in Limousines, which had critics comparing her self-described "country noir" to the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, John Prine, and Lucinda Williams. The success of the LP led to main-stage shows at festivals around the country and eventually the world, followed by a string of well-received albums. In 2018 she released the acclaimed Rifles & Rosary Beads, which she co-wrote with military veterans and their families, and in 2021 she published the memoir Saved by a Song. Dark Enough to See the Stars, Gauthier's 11th studio effort, appeared the following year.
