Mary Gauthier (1962) was relatively old when she took her first steps as a musician: she did not write her first song until the age of 35. She travelled through the United States for many years to finally end up in Nashville. Here, she developed into one of the most significant and bright new vocalists in country music.

Her lyrics are seldom frivolous: a background of poverty, alcohol and drugs serves as her inspiration, which gives her music the qualification ‘country-noir’. Her predilection for outsiders prompted her to collaborate with American war veterans. The songs on her recently released album Rifles and Rosary all have their origins in their poignant experiences, replete with hardship and depression. She succeeded in an almost miraculous way in making the tales told by these former soldiers, within all their rough edges, sound hopeful.
