Louisiana native-turned-Nashville resident Mary Gauthier’s songs have earned praise from Bob Dylan & Tom Waits, & been recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton, Boy George & many others. While Gauthier (pronounced Go-SHAY) comes off as a practical, no-nonsense woman, her songs are full of emotional punch. From fear & loneliness of an escape-seeking trajectory, her songwriting & sobriety (since age 35) have given her a steady flight path. Gauthier’s six albums have received countless accolades. In 2005, after releasing “Mercy Now,” she was recognized as the Americana Music Association’s New/Emerging Artist of the Year. Her 2011 album “The Foundling” was named the No. 3 Record of the Year by the L.A. Times. Gauthier is now touring her newly released “Live at Blue Rock,” recorded at a concert in Wimberley, TX, outside of Austin.
