Mary Gauthier

Country, Folk

Alt-country singer/songwriter Mary Gauthier exploded onto the scene in 1999 following her self-released sophomore effort, "Drag Queens in Limousines." The album, which garnered her a Crossroads Silver Star and a four-star rating in Rolling Stone, had critics comparing her self-described "country noir" to the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, John Prine, and, not surprisingly, Lucinda Williams. Gauthier's warmly candid treatment of her fringe-dwelling subjects rings true and never verges on sentimental.
