ACCLAIMED SINGER-SONGWRITER MARY GAUTHIER TO RELEASE HER MOST IMPORTANT WORK TO DATE RIFLES & ROSARY BEADS.. THE NEW ALBUM CO-WRITTEN WITH WOUNDED VETERANS TELLS DEEPLY POWERFUL AND PERSONAL STORIES OF STRUGGLES ABROAD AND AT HOME.
“…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
Nashville, TN – Acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier will release 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.
