One of our favourite battle-scarred trailblazers and songwriting powerhouses Mary Gauthier returns with a new album, her first in four years, Trouble & Love, and a new Canadian label home, the excellent Six Shooter Records.
The pain and ache in Gauthier’s music comes from her own life’s jagged edges and gutting experiences. As a chronicler of bad luck and hard times, she has carved out a particular place of emotional honesty and immediacy in the Americana world. The new record tells yet more tales survival and struggle with new rays of hope and growth piercing the caverns of hurt.
