“Louisiana raised Mary Gauthier has become one of Americana music’s most admired artist, across the U.S. and in her regular tours around the world”. – Wall Street Journal

“To be affected by these songs, you don’t have to know anything about Mary’s backstory (Louisiana orphan addict chef turned sober troubadour), the respect she commands across gender lines in the Americana scene, or the heavyweight catalogue she’s built out of unflinching introspection and Gothic shaded storytelling.” – NPR Music

…her razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection puts her in a class with greats such as Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and yes, Bob Dylan.” – Los Angeles Times 

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier recently released her most important work to date with ‘Rifles & Rosary Beads’ via Thirty Tigers. Co-written with U.S. veterans and their families, the eleven deeply personal songs on this album reveal the untold stories, and powerful struggles that these veterans and their spouses deal with abroad and after returning home. Each song on ‘Rifles & Rosary Beads’ is a gut punch: deceptively simple and emotionally complex.No stranger to pain or demons herself, Gauthier has used songwriting to work through addiction and childhood abandonment as an orphan. This is the first album where she has focused solely on experiences other than her own. 

Mary Gauthier has received countless critical accolades over the last decade and a half for her seven studio albums and captivating live performances. Her previous album Trouble & Love was praised by the press, including glowing coverage from outlets including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, NPR Music, Huffington Post, American Songwriter and many more.
