Unflinching honesty, directness, and compassion are trademarks of the gritty, country-tinged folk of singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier ("Go-shay"), who sings the stories of addicts, broken-hearted lovers, and forgotten souls with sharply observed, haunting detail and a smoky, beautifully weathered voice.

Raised in Thibodaux, Louisiana, Mary's travels took her from a Kansas City jail cell to the Louisiana State University philosophy department to the successful Boston restaurant she owned, and all of these experiences color her sparse, bittersweet songs about the downside of American life. The 1999 release of Mary's widely acclaimed second album, Drag Queens in Limousines, gained her national recognition and had her touring coast to coast and performing at festivals from Strawberry to Newport. Since then, Mary has continued to write amazing songs and release one after another CD that consistently make the top 10 list in dozens of major publications. Her most recent is Between Daylight and Dark (Lost Highway); as the Associated Press commented, "With her most recent release...Gauthier confirms that she is among the best songwriters of her generation."
