MARY GAUTHIER ‘Trouble and Love’ is her brand new studio album, includes songs written with Beth Nielsen Chapman and Gretchen Peters. Album guests include Duane Eddy

“With songwriting as powerful as hers, there’s no need to go looking for qualifiers…She’s a unique, intrinsically valuable musical voice. And there’s never a surplus of those.” Los Angeles Times

A Louisiana-native turned Nashville-resident, Mary Gauthier (it’s French - pronounced Go-SHAY) has had an extraordinary life. A teenage runaway who found her first shelter among addicts and drag queens, struggled with drug addiction and became a chef/owner of three restaurants in Boston before selling them in 2001 to become a full time songwriter. She has subsequently received countless accolades for her six studio albums. The New York Times music writer John Pareles picked 2001’s Filth and Fire as the #1 Indy release of the year, 2005’s Mercy Now earned her the Americana Music Association’s New/Emerging Artist of the Year title and 2011’s The Foundling was named as one of the Records of the Year by the LA Times. Mary’s songs have been praised by both Bob Dylan and Tom Waits and recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton, Boy George, Tim McGraw, Candi Staton amongst others. Her latest release, Trouble and Love, is winning rave reviews and includes “How You Learn To Live Alone”, co-written with Gretchen Peters and featured in Season II of the hit TV show Nashville. On the record, the legendary Duane Eddy plays guitar on this song.

Support: BEN GLOVER

The music of Americana artists mixed with traditional Irish songs were the soundtrack for Ben Glover growing up in the sleepy seaside village of Glenarm in the north of Ireland. Ben relocated to Nashville in 2009 and immersed himself in the southern culture. He began exploring the locations that were closely associated with the music he grew up listening to.

Now having returned to live in Ireland, the result of this homecoming is Atlantic and is easily Ben’s finest record. Atlantic deals with many themes - place, growth, pain, love, faith, sin, redemption and ultimately homecoming. It’s not only the recording that was personal - the songs, which Ben found deep within himself, were stripped of pretence and calculation and clearly are those of an artist who has something meaningful to say.

Whether it’s examining how the choices we make affect our fate in “Oh Soul” written with Mary Gauthier, or the haunting gothic murder ballad “Blackbirds“ co-written with and featuring Gretchen Peters, or the angst filled “Too Long Gone,” these songs are evidence of a writer and a singer who has found his voice. Atlantic will be released worldwide on 1st September 2014.
